thtmainWhen Jarrod Gorbel started playing under the name The Honorary Title he was just one man and a guitar singing songs that reached deep.  Soon after, Aaron Kamstra joined forces with Gorbel and before they knew it the duo was touring the country.  Their debut disc “Anything Else But The Truth” was a favorite among critics and music lovers alike.

Fast forward to 2007, The Honorary Title has transformed into a full band (Jarrod Gorbel on vocals and guitar, Aaron Kamstra on bass, Jon Wiley on guitar and keys, Adam Boyd on drums) and have just released their follow up cd Scream And Light Up The Sky.  The disc is sure to please fans of the band and will undoubtedly win over a few new ones.  This album is truly Gorbel’s coming out as a premiere songwriter, his biting sarcastic lyrics that explore relationships of all levels mixed with beautiful harmonies throughout.  Having a full band has added a lot more texture and depth to the overall impact of the songs.  According to Gorbel “Our intention with Scream and Light Up the Sky was to communicate pessimism and the darkest of emotions but at the same time not take ourselves too seriously.
