Friends of the Diamond: Goldenchild & Ed Kurz
Mar 22, 2016 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm| Free
Brooklyn-based, Florida-born songwriters Wiley Gaby & Jeffrey Doker set out to carve a space where their seemingly disparate influences could meet, mingle, and ultimately blur genre lines to create beautiful new music. Influenced by classic country storytelling, melancholy pop melodies, and pretty things, the duo formed Goldenchild in the spring of 2014. This winter, the band released its debut LP.
With a handful of original tunes ready to record, Doker & Gaby tapped rock producer/engineer Mark Ephraim, whose previous credits include work with The New Pornographers, Ed Vallance, & Au Revoir Simone, to name a few. Ephraim’s darker production paired with the songwriters’ country-influenced melodies yielded a haunting, evocative, and more rock-tinged sound.
