Golda is singer/songwriter/bassist hailing from Astoria, Queens.
Her new album, “A Little Luck,” showcases both her smooth, alto voice and her willingness to approach traditional musical themes from nontraditional angles. On “Summer,” Golda takes on the aging rockstar trope from the perspective of an adoring fan. On “Secret Girl,” she embodies the difficulty of being “the other woman” who has no desire to disrupt anyone else’s life. On “I Come Alive“, she addresses the pain and sweetness of an ongoing crush. On “The Waves,” music and lyrics combine perfectly to give you the feeling of being on vacation, in love, and probably a little drunk.
Her singing and songwriting have been compared to Joan Osborne, Jenny Lewis and Lucinda Williams.
Golda plays most of her gigs with her husband/sideman Jeff on guitar, backup vocals and harmonica.
