About Austin GOLD

Austin Gold are a UK based 5 piece contemporary blues outfit. Fronted by singer, lead guitarist and songwriter- David James Smith, who draws influence from Billy Gibbons, Andy Timmons, Gerry Rafferty, Eagles et al. Formed in the summer of 2013, all 5 members have extensive years of hard play, collaborating to create an eclectic sound of blues, rock leanings with a slice of Americana.

With endorsement from Vanquish guitars, Austin Gold are currently promoting their 5 track debut ep 'All the way down' across the uk. Videos and a single / album are under way. 


About All the way down

Drawing influence from American artists, Smith's lyrics depict; heartbreak, loyalty and solitary. Accompanied with a dynamic and powerful band, his guitar work affirm's each songs' sentiment.

Opener 'Another kind of bad' kicks with a pulsing, muscular groove, Paul Rogers esque vocal and solid riffs over the bridge section. Hammond blasts and Hendrix licks stamped all over.

'Don't let love subside' brings a dark shuffle to the table, continued through to the extended outro.

Title track 'All the way down' waltzes through a 'cry wolf' scenario, haunting clean guitar and muted keys climaxing in a guitar break of Pink Floyd territory.

Penultimate track 'First Train' declares a tenacity of resolve; 'I've got two tickets in the bag - let's go', with country rock leanings and driving rhythm.

Outstanding Bass work  in 'Soul to waste' of a Crossroads feel brings Austin Golds début to a finish. 

Great tone, big songs and accomplished playing.
