GORRAN is a pop singer/songwriter from London.
He is a graduate of London’s legendary BRIT School. It’s the same institution that has produced alumni like Adele and Amy Winehouse.
That is where he began developing his signature sound.
He was experimenting with live performance…Discarding what didn’t work and expanding on what did. So he had a very solid foundation while he was still in school.
After graduation, he started working with professionals almost right out of the gate. Gorran has learned that emotions are what connect a singer/songwriter with their fans. Not just sad emotions, either. He knows that all emotions spark reaction…Everything from sadness to joy to anger to nostalgia to fear.
This song was inspired by a lost love. And it was not an easy one to write.
“I was finding it incredibly difficult to express exactly what I was trying to say lyrically in those last few weeks of being with her – it was only once we ended the relationship that I found I was able to completely let go and properly finish the song. It really helped me come to terms with how I was feeling, and how I had been feeling for quite a while. It became clear that the verses were a poetic summary of the fundamental weaknesses in the relationship. The middle 8 was the last section I wrote, and were some of the most painful lyrics I’ve ever had to write, as I realised whilst writing it that it was one final parting note to the person I thought I loved. The song honestly means more to me than almost anything”.
In other words, he had to feel it to write it. He produced this track himself. And it is available for download now.
