I’m Gurley, an independent musician based in Los Angeles, CA.
Originally from the Boston, MA area, I graduated from Northeastern University in the spring of 2021 with a BS in psychology and minors in music and music technology. After connecting with artists from around the world I helped create the global super-group Room Noise. I incorporate various folklore, mythology, psychology, and neurobiology into my solo work. I hope you enjoy the ride.
““New Tide” compels with its charismatic synth pulses and falsetto vocals, showcasing the melodic and atmospheric songwriting of Boston-based artist Gurley. The track represents the fourth entry in the Beyond series from Gurley, who describes “New Tide” as about “the loss of personal identity within a relationship and the internal conflict that arises from clinging on and convincing oneself that everything is fine.” The track’s introduction intrigues with its contrast of understated vocal falsetto with expressive synths, thickly bridging into strings-esque layering as the one-minute turn approaches. “Everything’s just fine,” Gurley expresses amidst the suave, R&B-inspired percussion and throbbing synth work, the feeling of calm contentedness meshing with a hypnotic rhythmic resonance. “New Tide” is a stellar output from Gurley.”
