"SSG Music"

What makes Goldie Wilson’s sound so refreshing is not only the spot-on vocal harmonies between four people, but also the retro garage rock marriage to surfer pop they have so nicely perfected. The group has a little dirty blues feel to them with the guitar but then they add in elements like keys and drums (or sometimes a mandolin or lap steel) which brings it to a whole new level. - SSG Music (

"Subba Cultcha Album Review"

The Drums crash like fine Motown, the guitars have a twangy 50’s/early 60’s quality, while there are some lovely new wave synth melodies played over driving pixies style bass lines. The lead vocals feature some wonderful interplay between the deep male vocals and the frothy female counterpart. - CJ Brockman (

"College News Feature"

The band really conjures the spirits of ‘60s psychedelic rock and The Beach Boys...Mike gives out some blistering guitar that will please both the young cats and the old timers. - Fredric Hall (

"Rock and Reprise Album Review"

Goldie Wilson blasts out of the box knee deep in reverb and echo and awash in roots....they create their own alternate universe of music, familiar yet descriptively elusive. The great thing is, when you get it (and keep in mind that some songs take multiple hearings) it's way more than you can imagine. And even better, it won't wear out. Consider it a challenge. - Frank O. Gutch Jr. (

"Whisperin and Hollerin"

There's nothing contrived or dated about the way the band have assimilated their influences, as they successfully realign the best elements of the last 50 years of popular music to create an album that's fresh and, above all, enjoyable. - Christopher Nosnibor (

"Penny Black Music"

The self-released garage pop album has great commercial appeal thanks to its striking mixture of 1960's AM-radio pop and the snotty, slower vocals of more modern singers.

Two Star Motels' is a gorgeous little epic with a remote sounding farfisa organ which captures the feeling of Americana perfectly. - Maarten Schiethart (

"The Beat Surrender"

A rhythm section that is as tight as a Scotsman’s wallet - Kev (


2009 Goldie Wilson (Full Length LP)
2011 Black Stampede (Coming Soon)



While Goldie Wilson's debut album may have established the band as a well-versed 60s pop revival act, their sophomore release Black Stampede builds on this base with a sound that is heavily in the Folk/Americana vein and decidedly darker than their previous material. With songs focusing on lost lovers, family and the American West, Goldie ups the ante with more experimental song structures and ambitious four-part harmonies.

After seven years in the game, this Seattle based quintet has explored a variety of live arrangements, settling on two dedicated keyboard players, guitar, bass and drums. Although this sound is often toyed with and augmented with the likes of banjo ukulele, lap steel and mandolin, the core of Goldie's sound is their vocal harmonies, with any of their four vocalists taking lead duties.

Poised for the release of Black Stampede, Goldie Wilson is getting ready to hit the road in support of their new record and already racking up tunes for future releases.
