GRESHAM, OR—Poking his head into every room just to be safe, local man Kevin Lorgen reportedly checked his entire apartment Friday to make sure no one else was home before recording a song into his laptop. “Hey, anybody here?” said the 26-year-old, who held the acoustic guitar that he planned to use to accompany his singing while gingerly walking down the hallway to verify that his two roommates were gone. “Eric? Justin? You guys around?” After he had laid down several takes, Lorgen’s heart reportedly dropped when he heard the sound of someone shuffling around in the kitchen.
