the GOLDEN DREGS is the musical project of the baritoned and enigmatic Benjamin Woods. Currently based in South London, the project has been realised on stage through a range of guises, from one-man karaoke show to a full band with a rotating cast of friends and musicians.
Following on from 2018’s debut LP Lafayette (released via Art Is Hard Records), recent single Nobody Ever Got Rich signaled the second chapter in The Golden Dregs story, with a new album Hope Is For the Hopeless set for release in late September.
While earning favourable comparisons to the likes of Lou Reed, Tom Waits and Tindersticks, the GOLDEN DREGS is creating a world of its own that continues to draw people in.
