12.09.03 The Honorary Title just finished recording their first album with producer Roger Moutenot (Yo La Tengo, Sleater Kinney, Beulah). It will be released on Doghouse Records in early 2004.

09.15.03 Release date for the debut release by The Honorary Title is December 2, 2003! We've been big fans for a long time, and friends as well. We're very happy to be make available this record that was previously only available at The Honorary Title shows.

09.15.03 The Honorary Title are the newest member of The Self-Starter Foundation family!

The Honorary Title is Jarrod Gorbel. He fleshes his beautiful songs out with sparse instrumentation, leaving his voice and songwriting skills to carry the flag. Brings to mind Jeff Buckley on several occasions, but somehow even more personal, more real. He's toured with Dashboard Confessional, and currently on tour with The Movielife. His live show is both fun and mesmerizing. A true performer.
