"One of the most exciting and fresh sounding bands I have ever heard.”
Niall Toner, Songwriter/Radio Presenter RTE Radio One, Ireland


“I have been playing Gold Heart incessantly. They have some of the smoothest, emotionally laden and edgy harmonies in the business. Couple such superlative singing with killer songs, fascinating arrangements and ferocious pickin’ and you enter into the realm of high-lonesome greatness. They really have something going on here. Dave Higgs, Nashville Radio
