Gold Child is a Brooklyn-based psych-folk group fronted by singer/songwriter, Emily Fehler and joined by Jake Beal on drums. Fehler moved to New York after finishing her studies at Berklee College of Music. As she began the process of coming up for air in Brooklyn, she developed an obsession with the music made by the great female troubadours of country music’s golden era — namely the work of luminary songstresses Patsy Cline and Emmylou Harris. Seduced by the raw emotion and timeless melodies of the classics, Fehler — a gifted vocalist herself — had found a new direction and sought to apply her own stamp to the form. With the addition of ethereal, shimmering atmospherics to her own folk songs, Fehler laid the groundwork for what would become Gold Child’s sound.
Gold Child recently released their Sophomore single, “Me And You”, drawing comparisons to Mazzy Star, Angel Olsen, and Neko Case, and is currently working on the band’s debut full length due out this fall.
"Gold Child's ambitious new single, "White Water" is a stunning step in the right direction. Gold Child, who has been breaking new ground for the better course of the year, delights on her latest piece that resonates with a melodic enchantment that will have you eager to hear more."
"We can't wait to hear what else Gold Child has up their sleeve for 2017. We're on the edge of our seats."
"The beauty of music is that it so often exists as a dichotomy between its intangibility and overwhelming ability to make us feel. Through sound alone and with no personal connection or previous knowledge, we can identify and empathize with an artist’s pain, ecstasy, heartbreak and tragedy. Gold Child exemplifies this powerful contradiction with their latest single..."
"If you’ve had any past misgivings about country music, do yourself a favor: throw them in the trash and take a first listen below to “Tides”, by Gold Child. It will surely change your mind."
