ROCKLAND — Solo artist Late Sorrow, also known as Jake Nagy, releases his first single with Firebird Sounds LLC this week.

Based in Rockland, Nagy has been inspired by alternative music since he was 12 years old. Every day he listens to bands like The Used, My Chemical Romance, All Time Low and Green Day. All he has ever wanted is to release his own music. So in 2019 he did just that. He dropped his first single on Soundcloud.

Nagy’s first show he played as Late Sorrow was at a Hampton Beach venue as an opening act for the band Sepsiss — a national touring, award-winning band. He seems to be in the right place at the right time.

Late Sorrow recently signed a distribution deal with local audio and video distributor Firebird Sounds LLC. His first single with the company, “Silhouettes And Shadows,” drops Friday, Dec. 9, on all streaming platforms here:

“‘Silhouettes And Shadows,'” said the artist, “was fueled by angst driven guitar leads and raw emotion.” He gives the listener an interesting perspective, blending third person and first person points of view while focusing on the romantic aspects of everyday lovers. “All he wants is for her to feel special once in a while,” Late Sorrow sings going into the first chorus.

Nagy additionally performs as lead guitarist for local band Drive By Todd.

Located in Midcoast Maine, Firebird Sounds LLC is a global digital music and content distribution company that deals in an array of genres, including hip-hop, Americana, rock and now emo rock. For more information, email or visit
