Come Inside Rory D'Lasnow's "Songs From An Empty Room"

Rory D’Lasnow can fill a room, performing in venues from NYC’s The Bitter End to Nashville Tennessee’s Alley Taps. But D’Lasnow’s latest EP, “Songs From An Empty Room,” is from a place a bit more quaint. Here’s the long story short, on each track.

1. “Where You Belong

Vocals/Guitar- Rory D’Lasnow

Strings (on Keys) - Rob Freeman

In the words of Rory: “Where You Belong is a love song I wrote for my girlfriend while I was away at college. This one tackles the nature of our mortality and that feeling when somebody feels like home.”

LONG STORY SHORT: “Where You Belong” is a gentle love song. Complete with soft fingerpicking and sincere lyrics, as Rory sings, “That you’ll remember that I love you - and come into my arms/Where you belong.” This track is so tender and tranquil; you’ll wish you’re in Rory’s arms too.

2. “Forgotten

Vocals/Guitar- Rory D’Lasnow

Guitar/Bass/Drums - Rob Freeman

In the words of Rory: “This song is a tribute to the folks I work with at my mental health job, who are too often tragically estranged from their families. Forgotten is told from the perspective of a dying man trying to reconcile his love for his family with the fact that they’re not really showing up or saying what’s on their mind. The song is about the importance of speaking from the heart before it’s too late.”
