Goldpark – ‘I Guess It’s Never Enough’

About Goldpark

For the members of Nashville-based alternative rock trio Goldpark, the best music comes from true collaboration. The warmth and strength of their bond, as both friends and musical partners, ripples through each song they create and every show they perform.

The band first connected in 2019 when Andrew moved from Memphis to Nashville, meeting Wes through a work colleague. The pair was immediately struck by their similar musical sensibilities, and they began filling in for each other at various gigs around town. Kyle soon joined the mix, and by early 2020 Goldpark had started working on their first EP.

“The thing that pulled us to each other was our common ground of musical influences and instincts,” Andrew says. “I love the way Wes writes songs. His voice is unique and something I latched onto immediately. The three of us get really excited when each of us is in our element. We love playing together and experiencing each other play. We all compliment each other and it really works. The foundation of the band is collaboration and honoring each other.”

Goldpark’s songs are a point of connection not only for the band, but for the listener too. Even as the musicians examine the highs and lows of human existence, they also lean towards optimism. In hard times, music can be what unites us and drives us.

In April 2020, the newly formed trio’s demos caught the attention of Hazel Street Records. Inking their record deal just as the pandemic struck, Goldpark were forced to regroup and figure out how to launch a band without the road. Undeterred, Goldpark persevered and started to write, record and release their debut EP, Goldpark One, which was released in August 2021. “It would have been easy, because of social distancing and remote sessions, for this record to sound like it was made solely with a computer,” Andrew notes. “In a time when human interaction was scarce, we aimed to make songs that sounded like humans playing music together. These songs are a pillar of hope, like the light at the end of this tunnel.” Bolstered by a mix of blog buzz, DSP playlisting and a slew of eager new fans, the band were finally able to hit the road in Summer 2021.

Now, after nearly a year of touring around the US, Goldpark are preparing to step into their next chapter: Goldpark Two. “[This EP] is special for so many reasons,” the trio remarked. “We had the right songs, the right producer (Jeremy Lutito), and the right spirit. This body of work is the best representation of who we are and where we are going. We hope this EP makes people smile.”

Piers James – ‘Cha Ching’

About Piers James

Ipswich-based UK Hip-Hop star in the making Piers James is continuing to separate himself from the pack. With Hip-Hop such a fervent battle ground for young MCs Piers is back to take his place with ‘These Nights’ a laid back boom-bap ode to friendship, family and future good times. The piano-led break, although originally composed by Piers, sounds like it’s straight off an early Nas record, cut with heavy drums and Piers’ laid back delivery to evoke his influences (Tribe Called Quest and The Neptunes) perfectly.

Piers says of the release: “When I started producing ‘These Nights’, the chords I put down on the piano gave me an uplifting feel, so I wanted to make this track something special and from the heart, not just raps over a beat. It had a nostalgic feel, reminding me of previous good times spent with friends, family and even looking forward to future memories that we’ll share. I think sometimes in life we focus too much on the negative side of things so wanted to bring some positivity within the lyrics and vibe of the song.”
