Oak and Gorski- New EP and release show

Oak and Gorski- New EP and release show

Bow and pick in hand, Ken Oak and Ed Gorski are returning from their tour overseas in Japan and Singapore, ready to play some new material. Their music is referred to as "cello rock", with a hint of folk added to a universal pop-rock sound comparable to bands like Augustana or Deathcab. Following their previous LP, "Good Advice/Bad Advice", Oak and Gorski are coming out with their fourth studio album, "Love Destroyer". The band raised over $13,000 over the period of a month on Kickstarter, and went to Nashville for 2 weeks to record everything. The album starts off with the song "If I could Tell You", which is sure to be the most popular, definitely something that all can relate to. During the bridge of the song Oak sings, "You'll come running back/ We'll repeat the past/ Hopefully this time around/ It's better than the last", then follows with the weeping yet hopeful sounds of the cello. The acoustic song "Mountains" takes the listener away to a soothing, peaceful place. The album finishes with the heart-felt "Burn The Bridge", a sorrowful  melody about loss. The album really depicts the ups and downs of life, and how everything balances out to be beautiful.

"Love Destroyer" will be available on December 14th, and the duo will be playing a record release show at Hotel Cafe on the 15th. "The CD release party for 'Love Destroyer' will be Wednesday December 15 at Hotel Cafe, 9:30pm. We are super excited to rock it with the band and it's been awhile since we have played at Hotel so this should be a fun one!" said the guys. This is a performance not to be missed! -Jenna Putnam
