The Honorary Title is - Jarrod Gorbel and Aaron Kamstra. Gorbel bares his soul using his soaring voice and intricately worded narrative, while multi-instrumentalist Aaron Kamstra augments the melodies using an assortment of synths, organ and piano parts. Drawing on an eclectic range of influences that includes Elvis Costello, Bright Eyes and Jeff Buckley, The Honorary Title combines raw emotion with pop hooks and remarkably poetic lyrics to write songs that defy simple genre classifications. The band's indie sensibility is fleshed out on the richly orchestrated Anything Else But the Truth on Doghouse Records. The album was recorded in the fall of `04 in New York and Nashville, with the help of producer Roger Moutenot, known for his work with Yo la Tengo, Guster, and Josh Rouse.
