The group began playing together in Spring 2018 as part a different band. After some time collaborating and performing together, Venter, Manburg, and Turner had a greater vision and reformed as "Gold Shimmer" the following year.
"We created a full back story with personas for ourselves. We thought long and hard about who we wanted to be on stage and put clear intention into every show, every song, every note. We wanted our art to extend beyond music," remarks Manburg (on the reformation).
Their debut EP, "The Temple of Solace Pt. 1", took launch in September of that year and the band found themselves playing notable LA venues such as The Satellite, Exchange LA, Glasshouse, The Peppermint Club, Silverlake Lounge, Federal Bar, upon many others. Currently, the band is busy performing regionally and gearing up to release their next single and video, "Your World", in Feb 2020 with Show dates to follow!
