Coyote Music Review
So Far
Song List: Searching, Give Me A Day, Hello (Reprise), Caught, The Best Years, New World, Something Right, Again, StepChild, Ramble

Bryan Gorsira's new album so far brings together his original songs, new and old, in a collection that features the singer/songwriter-styled aspects of his repertoire. Where past efforts have moved swiftly across genres and moods reflective of his broad musical influences, Gorsira's aim with so far is to create a more cohesive compilation of his writing. In addition to the new songs, on which he sings and plays guitar, so far's ten tracks come from his 2008 release, The Best Years, and 2007's New World.

so far is self-described as being made up of songs "about searching for that hard to catch mate, finding him or her, and enjoying it all when caught." And what is clear on this album, as with The Best Years, is that Gorsira has an immense amount of love that he has chosen to express through his songs. His lyrics are sincere, heartfelt, and present to the listener a genuine story of love found and thoroughly embraced.

"Something Right" captures an any-day moment...

Wife is working hard putting flowers in the dirt
Her garden hands are turning brown
Throws me a smile that still melts my heart
I just nod and walk my way

And all is right with my world today
Let the sun shine down


Sparse and simple, the new songs "Something Right," "Again," and "StepChild" anchor so far's second half. His lead vocal, mellow and controlled, adds an even more personal touch to his songs. His voice comes across delightfully unpolished, completely on target melodically but with a meekness that befits the humble thankfulness in the lyrics.

CD REVIEW:



Acoustic singer/Songwriter Bryan Gorsira hails from Virginia & releases his latest CD entitled So Far in 2010. This is his sophomore release.



The CD kicks things off with “Searching“ a gentile intro piece complete with delicate acoustic guitar groove with well placed keyboard accents & impressive vocal presence from Gorsira. This first track is like a warm welcoming mat. Track 2 “Give Me a Day” delivers an upbeat acoustical melody that’s serves up well placed percussive accents, Spanish-type guitar virtuoso & a grand slam chorus that flows & ebbs its way through to emotional fruition. Track 3 “Hello Reprise” delvers another passionate ballad from Gorsira with its alternative rock vibe, well placed piano & impressive vocals accents from Gorsira. The CD makes quit an impression hitting solid stride serving up several amazing gems in a row. As this CD slowly unfolds its obvious Gorsira's music has a lot to offer with world class songwriting, amazing vocal persona. It has all the trademarks of world class acoustic folk/rock with its powerful highs, thought provoking wisdom, & emotional subject matter. This catalogue is packed with amazing honesty, always striking & powerful, yet fully entertained all at the same time. This CD flows extremely well song for song with musical textures reminiscent of classic Don Henley, Marc Cohen, Bread, & Don McLean. Each piece is a short and sweet musical experience holding your attention span perfectly. The musical textures are amazing. Besides the standard 4 piece delivery you will notice things like Hammond Organ, slamming harmonica, strings, fiddles, Saxophone, percussive accents layered within the music, piano, Spanish-type guitars, flutes & classic saloon style piano & amazing vocal harmonies to boot. The musicianship of all the players involved is solid across the board & conservative. Gorsira's vocal style works extremely well song for song as he also takes several risks throughout the CD indicating to me a strong & confident vocal ability. Gorsira is never afraid to shy away from the naked truth & makes the critical (singer to listener) connection with his vocals. Here you will touched by his vocal presence and amazing messages of life, love & the pursuit of happiness. These amazing ballads let it all hang out emotionally serving up passionate vocals and amazing subject matter. He possesses passion, & a vocal swagger that goes down smooth, & simply refuses to try too hard. From epic “Stepchild” to passionate “The Best Years” & “ Something Right” to powerful “New World” &”Another Old Day” to rocking “Carry Me Away” & “Love is Pain & solitary “Ramble” there is something here for just about everyone. The CD ends with Track 14 ”Wash Me” the perfect finale piece for a catalogue such as this.



It’s hard to final any noticeable weaknesses with this musical production This paragraph is dedicated to weaknesses associated with the musical production. As you can see I have nothing to report.



Overall “So Far” from Bryan Gorsira is an amazing musical statement from start to finish. Its strong suit is the amazing amount of musical diversity emotional depth, superb songwriting craft, solid musicianship, & passionate vocal presence form Gorsira. Gorsira touches all the subject matter & emotions not only in his writing, but with his vocal presence. Pound for Pound “So Far” has no weaknesses & is an honest, striking, & very uplifting musical statement filled with messages of hope, wisdom, & the love of life itself. “So Far” personifies the Human Condition & doesn’t let you forget the many amazing miracles found along its path.
