October Gold works with a simple formula: folksy acoustic guitar plus classically informed violin playing, combined with great pop songwriting equals great, catchy tunes. It’s the latest collaboration of Montreal-based singer/songwriter Kit Soden and his partner in music (and life), violinist Aliza Thibodeau. On record, the duo is backed by a full band, producing a lush soundtrack to their tales, but live they keep it simple, with just their go-to acoustic instruments and voices.
Featured song: “The Old Stones Of This Road (Mother’s Lament)”
October Gold’s debut album, Into The Silence, is available now.
