Acoustic Pursuit
Acoustic Pursuit
Based out of Lehigh Valley, PA, Acoustic Pursuit is a collaborative Indie/Pop/Acoustic music group featuring singer and songwriter, Christian Lopez and Brianna Storm. We want to be known for our original music, while also performing unique covers ranging from oldies to top-40 hits. Our name was inspired by "raw" talent, which is why they used the word, acoustic which refers to a musical instrument whose sound is not electrically enhanced or modified. Our desire is to pursue our dreams, talent, and sound for people to enjoy and hear all over.

I've been songwriting for many years right here inside the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania. My songwriting has come to define my every day existence. From high school and college, to various diverse jobs - I have either had the confidence to succeed in any one area, or the 'kahonas' to drop out of a good position to make time for my precious 'song babies' That's right. These songs are as alive as I am. I wouldn't be exaggerating by calling them my "multiple personalities". I have been in a couple rock entities, but mostly I have been an empathetic bedroom singing poet, grabbing the most heart breaking realities and attempting to make sense of them with a pure, realistic optimism. Only a few around me have come to understand that I will die as an artist regardless of my success. I only dream that I may sit next to artists like Van Gogh, Beethoven and the still-breathing Dave Matthews to discuss what inanities we may have in common that lead us to pour gasoline on such a fire within ourselves,resulting in a borderline madness.

Well, fortunately, these insane and sometimes dramatic sacrifices have paid off. I have recently been invested in by Anakeion Music, an indie label that shared my vision and passion, to produce my work. Two singles have been completed: "FOCUS", and "A Little Dirty" (Mountainside Studios in Tobyhanna, Pennsylvania by Producer Richard Rescigno). A music video for "FOCUS" has recently been released to YouTube - a simple, yet defining video that cannot stray away from the reality that I, as an artist,and a person am currently facing. "A Little Dirty" will be released this year with a music video as well.

I am set to release my first ever EP. This EP has been in the works since early December 2017 at Soundmine Recording Studios in East Stroudsburg, PA. These four songs will deliver the most professional and accurate dimension of my potential. Working along side Daniel Malsch, a gifted and successful producer who's credentials run deep, and AJ Larsen who is a multi-talented musician/songwriter and producer, we have been able to pull together some of the most talented musicians near and far in order to produce a true sound. A sound that is worthy, in my opinion, for an introduction into the vast music industry. I am Ben Gorski
