A graduate of Temple University of Philadelphia, Gold came to New York in 1978 with hopes of becoming a singer/songwriter. Although she had solid management, steady gigs and a powerful repertoire, she failed to make much progress until becoming involved with the Greenwich Village singer/songwriter scene that spawned the Songwriters Cooperative and the Fast Folk Music Magazine. Performing at open mikes, Gold was befriended by such future stars as John Gorka, Suzanne Vega, Shawn Colvin and Christine Lavin, who became her mentor. Gold replaced Patty Larkin in Lavin's singer/songwriter revue Four Bitchin' Babes in 1991. She remained with the group through the recording of their second album, Buy Me, Bring Me, Take Me: Don't Mess with My Hair...Volume 2, singing lead and playing piano on her compositions, "Try Love," "(Fun To Be) Perfect," "Good Night, New York"and a new version of "From a Distance."
In December 1997, Gold appeared with comedian Julie Halston in a show, Julie2, presented at the Eighty Eight in New York's Greenwich Village. She recently completed a musical show, The Perfect Day, that she hopes to produce in the near future. Gold's debut solo album, Dream Gold, was released in April 1998 and featured her original demo recordings of "Goodnight, New York" and "From a Distance." Try Love followed two years later. ~ Craig Harris, Rovi
