Singer/songwriter Matt Gold hails from midwestern America, but his music is quickly gaining ground worldwide. Gold is truly one of 2013's breakthrough musicians.
The artist made a name for himself playing original compositions at college campuses and small venues before releasing his first album, "Drown Before You Swim," in 2012. Music videos to support the album's three singles have been viewed thousands of times online.
Not only has "Drown Before You Swim" sold briskly on iTunes and Facebook, it ranked in Amazon.com's Top 20 Adult Contemporary music downloads for weeks and is continuing to earn rave reviews from bloggers, critics, and fans. Gold's social media clout has also risen considerably over the past few months; the number of his fans and followers tripled in the first part of 2013 alone.
Known for his haunting lyrics and soaring melodies, Gold's plaintive voice compliments his musical compositions with lyrics that strike deeply into the listener's life. While most of his earlier work was darker and more melancholy, his latest songs have been more upbeat and radio-friendly.
Gold spent the early part of this year in Los Angeles recording a new album with Grammy winning engineer David Bianco and world renowned drummer, Kenny Aronoff, producing. He anticipates releasing his new album in April of 2014.
