Gold & Glass

Gold & Glass


Gold & Glass is a rock band first and foremost, but we don't let it singularly define us. We like to make people dance and also think. We enjoy taking chances both on stage and in the studio. From heavy riff-rock, soul, doo-wop and alt-country, our music is dynamic and refreshing.


Formed in the spring of 2007, Gold & Glass is a 4-piece rock band based in New Orleans, LA. Their sound is like The Boss co-writing with Tom Petty for Morrissey singing with Foreigner - a kind of rock & roll reminiscent of the music coming through that little radio in your dad's garage while he worked on the IROC-Z that he was never quite able to fix up. Their shows feature a growing arsenal of original songs augmented with a wide-ranging selection of covers. Their lyrics are clever, competent, and sophisticated, yet their sound is highly accessible to the average music listener. They cut their teeth playing house parties but have been increasingly playing local New Orleans venues. Their growing reputation for entertaining and engaging live shows has given them a loyal following, and the band looks forward to honing their live act at every opportunity.
