I Am Gorse

YOUNG ENGLISH

So I did it. I recorded 6 songs, that I wrote.
I had the help of some amazing friends/artists bring these songs to life.
I know these songs are not anything special. However, I am proud.
I feel the same way I would assume a father does,
after his son gets to first base, during his first tee-ball game.
Proud. Maybe your son got tagged out when the next batter came up.
But still damn happy and accomplished that he created that son, and his son did something.
I made this record. I don’t care what it does. I did it, and that’s all that matters!

I also kind of want to go into the subject matter of the songs on this EP.
The EP is titled “I Wish I Had”.
Everybody wishes they had done something in their life, that they didn’t.
Maybe it isn’t a regret, just curiosity. These songs aren’t typically about regret either.
They’re more of a collection of feelings that I’ve had about a collection of people in my life.
Yeah, they’re generally about ex-girlfriends. But when I wrote the songs, my main idea was having these songs relatable to EVERYBODY. I tried to keep gender out of it. I only have one song where I mention gender. Because it honestly doesn’t matter.

I know the lyrics are nothing amazing
However, they are relatable. And I believe that is the strong point in all of these songs.
Everybody has either been left, or left somebody else.
Everybody has wanted to be somewhere they’re not.
Everybody has missed someone or something.
These are the topics I wrote about. I can’t really write when I’m happy. Sorry.

I don’t necessarily still have the same feelings I did when I wrote these songs either.
So the ties that these songs had, to the people I wrote them about, don’t really exist anymore.
I wrote 4 out of 6 of these songs, over a year ago.
Of course I feel some of the feelings I mumble about in my songs, but not about those people.
Thats the cool thing about “art”. It can be interpreted in many ways.
Hence why I feel the main thing about these songs, is their relatability.

I plan on releasing these songs for free when I get them back from being mixed/mastered.
It shouldn’t take more than a few weeks.
I’d appreciate if everyone that knows about this project gave it a listen.
I don’t really give a shit if everybody thinks it sucks. I wrote and recorded these songs for me.
But of course it would be cool if people actually did enjoy the songs.

Whatever,
-Gorse

The Posture

Rewind to then…
Before I left for tour in June of 2013, I said that when I came home, in August, I would be recording an EP. Well, when I came home I didn’t relate to those songs anymore and just decided against the whole idea. I didn’t think the songs were bad. I just didn’t feel a connection with them anymore. I was at a point in life where I felt happy. All of the songs were sad. I wasn’t about to record sad songs, when I was living the good life.

Fast forward to now…
I’m not as positive as I was then and I’ve found solace in those songs again.
When I looked back on the songs, some changed a bit, and some I still haven’t emotionally clicked with again. Some I kept exactly the same. I’ve also written new ones.

I’ve once more made plans to record these songs.
I have 6 songs, that I’m happy with, how they currently are, in my head. 
Funding is coming from my own wallet, so I will not be able to press the record.
However, I will be stepping into the studio in January to give them justice.
A few of my friends will be lending their talents to help out.

I was going to call this project POSTURE,
however some poppunk band, that will probably break up in a year,
decided they wanted to use that name already. 
I may just add a THE in front of it and call it THE POSTURE.
Yeah, I’ll do that.
The EP will be titled I WISH I HAD.

THE POSTURE - I WISH I HAD
To be recorded in January 2014 @ Barbershop Studios in NJ.
