Biography

With a combination of evocative and rocking original instrumentals, and great interpretations of classic movie and tv themes, R+B, country and rock classics, Little Muddy has forged a unique niche in instrumental
roots-music. Starting with the first cd release in 1999 entitled Little Muddy, through 2003’s Mayan Mud, 2008’s solo release The Road to Bodie, 2009’s Door 15, and 2016's Future City- a mix of gritty ‘crime-rock’ original instrumentals, with a couple great classics that the band reinterprets in a striking way.

Soundtrack placements include a wide variety of shows on The History Channel (the movie 'Jesse James Hidden Treasure'),VH-1( Behind The Music, episode featuring Pink),and many other shows on The Discovery Channel and ESPN.

Co-Produced with Adam Rossi, Future City, the band's 5th cd, finds the Oakland, Ca. based instrumental band Little Muddy at peak strengths. With Rich Goldstein on guitars, and long time members Jeff Obee on bass, and Mark Abbott on drums and percussion , Future City was recorded live in the studio at Adam Rossi Audio, in San Francisco.

The band has also contributed music to the soundtracks of Camerado film
productions: the award winning documentary Book Wars, and 2007’s Lost in New Mexico. Guitarist and founder Rich Goldstein has been a part of the northern California music scene since 1990. Having spent his early years in rural southern illinois, he was exposed to the best music of the 50’s, 60’s, and 70’s, especially the country music of the day. The daily bus ride home on gravel roads was often accompanied to whatever was playing on driver’s Bud Hiller or Norris Haglers 8-track player. As well as with Little Muddy, Goldstein has toured and recorded 4 albums with Jeffrey Halford and the Healers, and with The Fall Risk (as lead/rhythm guitarist with singer/songwriter Jeff Pehrson, a member of Further w/Bob Weir and Phil Lesh).
