Gorran grew up in a very musical family, his father is a classical composer and Head of Composition and Contemporary Music at the Royal College of Music, and his mother is an editor at Gramophone magazine.

He has been writing and producing songs since the age of 13, but it was at The BRIT School that he found his sound and began to take writing seriously. Feeling inspired, he would write songs on his phone on train journeys to and from college.

 

Since leaving BRIT in summer 2017, Gorran has been writing, recording, and producing his original pop tracks, as well as refining his exceptional live show. He recently opened for KT Tunstall on her UK tour, including a performance at the London Roundhouse to a crowd of 2500.

 

Combining elements of dance, R&B, and hip-hop, Gorran produces contemporary pop with dark undertones.

 

His passion and flair for music were evident from a young age and during his time at the prestigious BRIT School (alumni including Adele, Amy Winehouse, and Rex Orange County), Gorran developed his distinctive sound and dynamic live show.

 

Since graduating Gorran has been writing and recording with industry professionals to produce original, bold, and gritty pop tracks. His debut single, ‘Easy For You’, was released on June 7th this year, with more original tracks to follow shortly.

Discuss your composition and melody.

Very early on in the process, I made the conscious decision that the upbeat style of the instrumental would stand in contrast to the sad lyrical content.

.

State the name of your producer and elaborate on the song.

A young producer called Drew James worked on the track with me. I had a clear vision for the production of the track, so I was heavily involved in this process, as I am with the production of all of my songs.

Discuss the lyrics of the song.

The song is based on what was going on in my head after my long-term girlfriend cheated on me. We tried to save the relationship, but I constantly found myself questioning why it was so easy for her to get over what she’d done to me.

Elaborate on your music career.

I grew up in a very musical family and have been writing music and performing my whole life.

 

I discovered my sound while I was at The Brit School, and since graduating I’ve been writing and recording my original music with industry professionals.

 

Recently I’ve been focusing on developing my live show, and I had the amazing opportunity to open for KT Tunstall on her UK tour earlier this year. Performing at the iconic London Roundhouse was such a great experience.

 

I’ve just released my first original track ‘Easy For You’, and have more coming in the next few weeks. It’s still early days, but the response has been really encouraging so far, and I’m excited to see how things progress over the coming months.

Brief us on how you are reaching fans with your music.

At the moment I feel very connected to my fans, speaking to them directly on social media regularly. I think it’s important to have that personal connection with fans, as they are the ones who will ultimately have the power to take my music to the charts and they will be the ones filling up venues.

Discuss your motive behind making music.

I want to be in a position where I can be touring the world with my music, to crowds that know and love my songs. I want to be known for my songwriting and to have a life-long career as an artist. A personal goal of mine is to at some point in my career write a truly timeless hit.

.

.

Discuss your songwriting.

I wrote my first song at 14, but it was at college that I really realized my love for songwriting.

 

I met Drew James online in 2016, and he went on to produce ‘Easy For You’ with me, which was around the time I felt I really started to find my sound.

 

From then on, almost every song I’ve written has felt like it’s in the ballpark of the sound, and I’ve simply been building from there.

 

I love to write. It’s liberating, and such a personal feeling, which is what makes sharing your songs publicly such an interesting thing.

.

.

Tell us your opinion on using rhymes dictionary or writing software to develop lyrics. 

I think it can do no harm to use these tools every once in a while, as long as you’re fully aware of the story you’re telling in a song and you don’t stray from that and start using words without putting thought behind them. There should still be meaning in the words, no matter where you pluck them from.

Discuss the music industry.

The music industry is constantly changing, and keeping up with this is both exciting and challenging!

 

When I first started writing music as a teenager I never dreamed that I could self-release, but streaming has totally transformed the way we produce and consume music.

 

I love that I can get my tracks out directly to listeners without so many barriers in the way.

 

The challenge is making yourself heard in such a huge ocean of new music!

 

I am interested to see what happens next – how technology will continue to transform the music industry, and how the industry will respond.

Elaborate on how you prepare yourself for a recording session.

The majority of the vocals on my records at the moment are recorded in my bedroom, so generally, it’s just wake up and get to work!

.

.

.

Brief us on your preference in terms of tempo as in up-tempo, mid-tempo or slow tempo.

I couldn’t say I have a preferred tempo, whatever the specific song needs I give to it. I don’t exclusively prefer one tempo over another at all.

.

.

.

 

Discuss your shows or live performance.

I recently opened for KT Tunstall on her UK tour, including a performance at the London Roundhouse to a crowd of 2,500, which was an incredible experience.

 

At the moment I play my songs, which are predominantly electronic in the recordings, acoustically. I love that the acoustic set-up provides more intimacy and that the songs are presented in their most raw form. I think this has a great impact on the audience.

.

.

.

Send a message across to your fans and supporters.

Thank you to anyone who’s feeling my music so far. This first song only scratches the surface of my sound and I can’t wait to share more with you.

.

.

.

 

Tell us what makes this song unique from others.

There is aggression in ‘Easy For You’ that I feel has been slightly lacking in pop music generally in recent years. There is also a great deal of vulnerability in the lyrics that I think will resonate with people.

.

.

.

 

Tell us the themes of most of your compositions.

I wouldn’t like to box myself in to only writing about specific themes all the time – my music is constantly evolving, and what I’m saying in my songs is too.

 

However my first three releases all center around the deterioration of my relationship with the same girl.

 

The songs all came to me very naturally, and they are released chronologically, to tell the story of the breakdown of our relationship.
