ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
What if your favorite rock star of the 1970s had come of age just a decade or two later?

Formed in 2004, Atlanta’s GOLDEN is an intelligent and dynamic rock band that successfully draws from different genres to create a sound which is reminiscent of your favorite LPs, yet fresh enough for your iPod.

Combining the lyrical sincerity of David Gray, the musical sophistication of Steely Dan, and the dynamic energy of Maroon 5, GOLDEN is one of those rare bands that can move both the spirit and the body. GOLDEN’s songwriting speaks of hope, frustration, memories, and love, with an emotional honesty that avoids cliché and sentimentality. At the same time, the band can inspire a crowd to shake the floors with their energetic instrumental forays.

For the past two years, GOLDEN has been honing their unique blend of pop and rock on Atlanta’s stages -- at The Cotton Club, Smith’s Olde Bar, Eddie’s Attic, and the 10 High Club to name a few. Most recently, GOLDEN was chosen as a finalist from hundreds of bands in the 92.9 daveFM Searcharoo contest – the winner of the contest will be sent to perform at the 2006 Bonnaroo music festival.

Spring of 2006 saw the release of GOLDEN’s self-produced CD ...you, and everything... which features 12 songs that highlight the stylistic breadth and diversity of the group. From radio-ready, high-energy singles like “Come Over” and “Drive”, to the delicate and introspective ballad “Here”, the album conveys a blend of maturity and playfulness that is immediately engaging. Other highlights include the jazz-inflected “Toothbrush” (a lighthearted yet sincere look at the things an ex leaves behind), the powerful and climactic “Worse for Wear”, and an intimate live version of the song “Timbuktu”, recorded at Eddie’s Attic in 2004.

Drawing from influences such as Jackson Browne, Sting, Bob Marley, David Gray, Steely Dan, and Stevie Wonder, GOLDEN demonstrates an ear for the past and a vision for the future. With top-notch musicianship to satisfy the most demanding of listeners, GOLDEN succeeds in communicating the essential truth of music -- that a great song speaks to our desire to live life to the fullest, enjoying each experience as a melody, each moment as a note in time.

“Atlanta pop quintet Golden doesn’t sound like your typical ‘local' band…these evocative rockers are tapped into a sound more reminiscent of late ‘70s-era Steely Dan. And that’s a good thing.

On their self-produced release…the lavish orchestration of a Donald Fagen studio session meets with a host of talented players to create a full and polished debut. There’s a distinct maturity at work in Golden’s efforts, from the complex arrangements to the flash and bang of the band’s ultra-sleek homepage. As musicians and composers, Golden could share the plaudits usually reserved for more veteran artists. And by the looks of things, the band is on the fast track to recognition…

What ultimately distinguishes ...you, and everything... from the fluffy chaff of top 40 popdom is a refreshing jazziness and a dash of blue-eyed soul.

In lead-off track “Come Over,” funky riffs and a hooky chorus make for a Jamiroquai-esque groove that sounds poised for national airplay…The album’s standout track is the jazzy, jammy “Mine” with its shimmering cymbals and saxophone swells suggestive of Dave Matthews’ finer moments…Golden has crafted a work of sophisticated pop that reaches out to the mainstream without losing its luster.”

The Daily Vault

"Golden managed to draw me in at first listen..."
“…Atlanta, Georgia bluesy jam-rockers Golden managed to draw me in at first listen… [the album] starts out on a strong note with “Come Over,” which makes the band’s description of their sound as ‘warm apple pie’ and ‘Christmas joy’ move from strangely specific to spot-on instead. It’s instantly obvious as single material, at first because of how easily listenable vocalist Joshua Golden is: like Adam Levine without being so grating, or an updated incarnation of David Gray. But behind the vocals is some fantastic instrumentation…Golden absolutely deserve a record deal, though as of now they’re unsigned. But take my word; I’m sure one day these guys are going to get their deserved place right alongside counterparts Dave Matthews Band and Maroon 5.” - Review by Melanie Love
