Go See Jarrod Gorbel Tomorrow Night!

January 27th, 2011

Jarrod Gorbel and Aaron Kamstra founded the Honorary Title—built around Gorbel’s vocals and lyrics and Kamstra’s instrumentals—in Brooklyn back in 2003. But the lineup rotated over the years, and “by the time I did the last Honorary Title tour, it was all new members,” said Gorbel. So he decided to go it on his own. His first solo full-length, Devil’s Made a New Friend, came out last summer. Think: soul and straight-up rock mixed with a bit of Americana. And experience his sound, and perhaps an Alicia Keys cover, in person when Jarrod Gorbel (above, doing “Optimism”) plays The Bowery Ballroom tomorrow night.
