(2003-2009)

The Honorary Title was a folk-rock band from Brooklyn, New York composed of Jarrod Gorbel, Aaron Kamstra, Jon Wiley, and Adam Boyd. Gorbel has become known for his dark sense of humor, which often works its way into the band’s songs.

Their first release was a self-titled EP. But they received much attention and did major touring after they released a full length album on Doghouse Records in 2004 entitled Anything Else But the Truth, recorded in Nashville and New York with producer Roger Moutenot who has also worked with Yo La Tengo and Guster. Videos are available for the singles “Everything I Once Had”, “Bridge and Tunnel”, & “Frame by Frame”.

Gorbel released a solo EP called Ten Years Older on his 2010 acoustic tour with Dustin Dobernig. In an interview with weworemasks.com, Gorbel says, “It’s considered a solo session, but…The Honorary Title might be over.” He also said he is working on a solo LP. On October 24, 2009 Jarrod announced that The Honorary Title would play their final show on Friday, November 20, 2009. He continues to record and play music, but under his name.
