A Wife and Husband Duo
Golda is singer/songwriter/bassist hailing from Astoria, Queens.
Her songwriting career started a few years back when she performed weekly as part of an improvised musical comedy team. Though she loved improv, she always thought it would be nice to sit down and really compose a song rather than make it up on the spot.
A few years later, she started playing bass, and suddenly she found herself writing songs every chance she got.
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.
