Non-profit organization To Write Love on Her Arms hascollaborated with singer and songwriter Noah Gunderson torelease a brand new TWLOHA t-shirt now available for purchase. The front of the shirt reads, “I want to learn how to love, not just the feeling” – lyrics from Noah’s song, “Ledges,” off his full-length solo debut album with the same title. Lyrics to the song in its entirety are printed inside of each shirt. To purchase the t-shirt, please visit: http://store.twloha.com/.
Noah Gunderson talks about the collaboration, stating: “To Write Love On Her Arms saves lives. I’ve seen it. Over the course of the last five years that I’ve been involved with them, I’ve spoken to countless people – at college events, HEAVY AND LIGHT, and my own concerts – whose lives have been radically changed by TWLOHA. It is a blessing and an honor to collaborate with an organization that so clearly values honesty and communication, but most importantly, values people.”
When asked about the new t-shirt design, TWLOHA founder, Jamie Tworkowski, had this to say: “I’ve been all across America with Noah. Beyond his talent, it’s his honesty that I connect with most. This lyric represents that honesty, the simple yet powerful confession of wanting to learn how to love. That idea resonates with me personally and it’s at the heart of the conversation TWLOHA exists to invite people into. What does it look like to love someone who is struggling? What does it look like to love someone when it isn’t easy, when it costs something and it’s uncomfortable?”
Pop-folk singer and songwriter Noah Gundersen began taking piano lessons before he was a teen, and after inheriting an electric Epiphone guitar from his father in 2002, he began tracking songs on his father’s recording equipment. By the time he was 16, Gundersen was gigging in the local cafes. His sister, Abby, an excellent violinist, cellist, pianist, and harmony singer, began to accompany him a few years later. The duo added a rhythm section and began performing as a full band under the name The Courage. Gundersen also formed the post-hardcore group Beneath Oceans in 2007, but after finishing an unreleased EP, the band called it quits in 2008 and Gundersen resumed his solo career. His first solo release, “Brand New World,” recorded in Eugene, Oregon in a home studio and featuring plenty of his sister’s playing and singing, appeared that same year. More EPs followed, “Saints & Liars” in 2009 and “Family”in 2011. A full-length solo debut, “Ledges,” appeared from Dualtone Music on February 11th, 2014.
