heartsore: songs for justin is wollenberg record’s 7th independent release by label founder and singer-songwriter richard cortez, available from iTunes, CD Baby and more.

heartsore is a deeply personal narrative on the decomposition of love, the loss of innocence and cortez’ own battles with depression. reckless thrashing electric guitars and moody weeping cellos matched with cortez’ tender and often haunting baritone voice only intensify the experience of devastation and mourning showcased in these 5 original songs. cortez effortlessly emotes gut-wrenching lyrics that seem to have almost been ripped right from the pages a diary or break-up letter.

from explosive epic power ballads “separate ways” and “10,000,” to the sparse and chilling folk-inspired confessional art songs like “wait. i love you, always” and “over, again,” heartsore: songs for justin will resonate with anyone who’s ever loved, lost, and learned to move on.
