December or The Tragedy of Laura Linney (2016)

GSRV's first musical release in 3 years, "December..." was written and recorded over the course of 5 weeks beginning in the first week of December 2015 and concluding in the first week of January 2016.

Musically, "December..." follows in the Urban Folk footsteps of GSRV's previous albums. Rock and Folk foundations are built upon with harmonizing violins, heavily layered vocals, and blips and bleeps galore while Punk and Beatle-esque pop influences shine through on the last few tracks. The EP's eponymous final song commences with an existential cry reminiscent of Sufjan Stevens or Glen Hansard.

Lyrically, classic themes of nostalgia, eroticism, and spirituality abound.

An excellent first taste of GSRV if you've never heard him before and a welcome return for any familiar with his previous work.

Music for the Living.

Hear Here...get it?

The Artist.

GSRV (George Scholes Robson V) has been Composing and Recording hand-crafted music since 2008. Influenced by his time as a violinist in the New Jersey State Youth Orchestra, several years in the NYC theatre scene, and almost 10 years of rock drumming along the Jersey Shore, his latest album "Transcendence. Problematic." may best be described as Urban Folk. What is Urban Folk? I'm glad you asked.

The Album.

Featuring dramatic vocal diversity and multi-instrumentation, GSRV’s self-produced album takes rural elements like fiddle, mandolin, and guitar and marries them with theatre, punk, and R&B influences.

The Songs.

A sampling of the songs off the new album.
  “Two Lips” like Beck covering Prince on a street corner
  “Let’s Kiss Like That” country song of a Jersey native
  “Come By Here” acoustic guitar, vocal density, urban folksy
  “¿Es Cattle? ¡Oh Gee!” playful, Ben Foldsian, Eschatological

The Question.

Will you listen to GSRV’s music? He’d like that. You might too.
