Winnipeg-born singer-songwriter Boy Golden’s purpose is to enjoy each day and make good music. Since releasing his debut album, Church of Better Daze in 2021, he’s played major summer festivals and toured with The Sheepdogs. With hopeful, fresh, and upbeat songs, such as “KD & Lunch Meat” (featured on the Zone 91-3 and charted to #1 on Alternative Radio), the blues- and country-tinged harmonies of Boy Golden are most heavily inspired by the blues-inflected style of J.J. Cale — even down to his use of a drum machine as the rhythm section. However, Boy Golden’s general love of old country, blues, and rock 'n roll permeates everything from the jam band-style instrumentation to his vocal delivery.
Opening for Samantha Fish ft. Jesse Dayton on Friday, August 25.
