New York by way of Atlanta based genre-bending artist COUCHSURF has releaseed his debut EP Don’t Be Sorry, Do Better today. The 5 songs that make up Don’t Be Sorry, Do Better are fun, energetic, and upbeat with, truly, something for everybody. One track was written about an experience in a nightclub being seduced in VIP by a nameless mystery woman (Hundreds & Tree), while another was inspired by the lectures of marketing guru Gary Vaynerchuk (Change Your Life).
Premiering alongside a track by track from Andrew Lynn (singer, songwriter, instrumentalist of COUCHSURF), the five songs that makeup the EP are broken down and the stories and influences behind the tracks are revealed. “‘Hundreds & Tree’ takes the scene of a night club in Atlanta, Georgia. Shit got weird when a mysterious woman seduced me in VIP and got me wrapped around her finger. I thought I was falling in love. She wouldn’t tell me her name and she eventually disappeared into the night. I never saw her again after that encounter and found the experience interesting enough to tell the world,” COUCHSURF shares with American Songwriter. “The title “Don’t Be Sorry, Do Better” should honestly be the motto of this project. This co-write with Survival Kit came from following Vans Warped Tour in 2018. I personally messaged over 10,000 Warped fans and drove my van across the country and back promoting and meeting them. We eventually landed nearly 2 weeks of gigs performing on the tour. Everyone involved was flat broke after a full summer of travel, but it was the spark that led me to where I am today as an artist.” On naming Don’t Be Sorry, Do Better, Andrew Lynn states “I believe that “sorry” is one of the most commonly used excuses. Words are cheap. Action is everything. Don’t be sorry, do better.”
Don’t Be Sorry, Do Better was produced by Aaron Pace in Atlanta, Georgia. Pace has previously worked with artists such as Survival Kit, Left to Suffer, Sarah & The Safe Word, Lexis Yelis, and more.
