• 🎵What a nice surprise! The pre-released songs were fantastic. But it’s too late to listen to the album now. 🥺Tomorrow’s gonna have a tasty soundtrack. Snarky Puppy becomes one of my favorite music. I also can’t get over how they produce it all and their musicianship is 🤯

  • The video for my new song (acoustic singer-songwriter/folk) will premiere on YouTube soon at www.youtube.com/watch

  • Tonight I was recording vocals for a song that I started about a year and a half ago. I couldn’t sing it well then but believed that the song was worth better singing. Took an online course. Not finished but got much better. Tonight’s result is pretty good. Kid-approved, too 🎵

  • Bought a CD/DVD player, in part so that I could listen to the remixed version of Unfolded Like Staircase by Discipline. It’s one of my all-time favourite albums. Signed by the band as well as mixing and recording engineers, as part of the kickstarter campaign. Got it today.

  • I wrote a part for a new track. It’s quite unusual, I think. It’s planned to be an interlude or a part of it.

  • I heard Facebook was having connectivity problems today. Here’s a parody cover song I recorded a while ago, called “Imagine… there’s no Facebook”. youtu.be/WhoVyW3nM…

  • 🎵Recorded a cover of the 🎸 solo for Ghosts, by the Canadian band Big Wreck. Had to learn all the parts, including bass and drums because there were no good backing tracks. The kind of song that I liked from the first listen on the radio. youtu.be/QhcVi13gY…

  • 🎵 I’ve recorded a rock cover of a famous soviet-era cartoon theme, Nu Pogodi, followed by some 🎸 shredding. Also, it’s my 🥁 debut. I’ve got Roland eDrums for the New Year and been self-learning drumming since. It’s fun. www.youtube.com/watch

  • People still live rock! #Eurovision

  • I’ve come a long way music-wise since this video but the lyrics on Swift language in this Karma Police parody cover are still valid: www.youtube.com/watch

  • 🎵 My latest song, Oh Dear World, will be aired tonight and tomorrow on Will Keenan’s show on @capemayradio 📻. Tune in online at 9pm EST at www.capemayradio.org. 🎸 Exciting. First time on terrerstrial radio.

  • 🚨New music video coming up. After 20 years, I can finally play the guitar parts in Dream Theater’s Erotomania, not perfectly but good enough to leave it behind me. It’s probably the most technical piece I’ve mastered yet. The video premiers Monday at 11:30EST.

  • 🎵 The “Radio Edit” of my latest track, “Oh Dear World”, is now available everywhere. Melancholic rock meets progressive metal in the end. Links are here: distrokid.com/hyperfoll…

  • Hell yeah!

  • I’ve released a “radio edit” of my latest song, “Oh Dear World”. More than a shorter intro, I’ve tuned the vocals and remixed it for more clarity. Available now on Bandcamp and will be streaming in about 10 days. jacobgorban.bandcamp.com/track/oh-…

  • A music track I won’t release, so take a listen

    I wrote and recorded this riff-based part a couple of months ago and thought of making it an instrumental track. But at the same time I’ve been writing a new song and eventually decided to use the riff from here for the new song. So I’m happy to post this recording, as it’s something that won’t get released after that. Now, time l to start producing this new song. I’m calling it “Spares”.

  • 🎵 Yay! My Axel F / Beverly Hills Cop theme guitar cover video has now reached 1000 views on YouTube. Only the third video to reach this (arbitrary) milestone. 🎸

  • Never too late to learn another classic solo and try achieving a new (for me) sound. GnR - November Rain

  • My new single, Oh Dear World, is out. Go on an emotional and introspective journey with this melancholic progressive rock/metal song featuring my friend Joby on the vocals. I’m really proud of this one. Use Bandcamp link to listen if you have no streaming services access.

  • New lyrics - "Spares"

    Working on lyrics for a new song. I don’t have music yet. Usually, for me, it’s the other way around - it starts with music. But this time I had an interesting idea for lyrics and I’m close to finishing, after several writing sessions. Came up with interesting rhyming rhythm for them, too, so it’s going to dictate some of the melody. Current title - “Spares”.

  • Writing and recording the guitar and bass parts on this section was tricky. But not as tricky as some other. Excited about this new song I’m working on. 🎵🎸

  • TZ repost: I’ve published a performance video of my song “Seven Years and Seven Months”, which is light rock track, dedicated to my daughter. This is in additional to the lyrics video that’s already on YouTube youtu.be/wLUjI-O5T…

  • 🎵Listening to the new album by Kansas, which was released last night. Very progressive yet melodic, great violin 🎻parts. music.apple.com/ca/album/…
