Episode 85: Rory D’Lasnow – Taking Back Sunday/Where You Want to Be

Our guest today is one Rory D’Lasnow. Rory is a singer-songwriter from New Jersey who plays the guitar upside down and backwards. He released his new EP, “Songs From an Empty Room” in Fall 2021 and you can catch him playing live throughout the Mid-Atlantic region.

Rory is also the host of an Instagram Live event once a week titled The Songwriter Showcase, which is an excellent way for those wishing to discover new songwriters and a place that I will recommend you give a follow.

For our conversation today, we will be discussing “Where You Want to Be” – the second album from Long Island, NY’s pop-punk outfit Taking Back Sunday. WYWTB was released on Victory Records back on July 27, 2004 and we took a deep dive into the lyrics, melodies and textures found on this record. Enjoy!
