Uncommon Gold embodies a manifest recipe for musical alchemy.
The group’s debut album ‘Slow Burn’ is a finely wrought mosaic, the work of a mature, visionary band. Their remix of diverse musical vocabularies holds no genre allegiance; they borrow what they need to tell the stories they hear. Evoking trace influences of Neil Young’s raw sincerity, Daniel Lanois’ rarefied sonics and Miles Davis’ bold innovations, the band has given notice that its robust musicality, exploratory muscle and pop savvy is a potent concoction.
Enlisting the invaluable collaboration of co-producer Jon Kooy & photographer Robert Kenney, Uncommon Gold is generating a unique niche and momentum to reach a broader audience base.
