excerpts from full length article


"Thankfully Bob Daspit and his main musical collaborator-Goldbrickers songwriter and vocalist Nicole Summerwood-decided to leave their studio jobs to pursue what makes them happy: writing and performing their own music. Heaven and the Goldbrickers debut 1600 Miles (released in 2000) are two positive results of the dedication that grew from their decision. A goldbricker refers to someonw who's shirking his work. In this case the goofing off is paying off and putting a positive spin to the term."

"Summerwood's lyrics range from playful to pensive, and Daspit's got the guitar chops and the studio production to complement each twist and turn" - Pacific Sun


"Goldbrickers' marriage made in 'Heaven'"

excerpts from full length article

"From the junk-art ode of "Unlovable" to the skiffle-flavored "Away too Long" Summerwood's versatile vocals tell of the serenity that living among dusty driveways can bring."

"It's reflected in the fast rockin' "A Night Like This" which finds a young mother in the house alone, grateful for her loved ones and worried about losing them: "The last time we spoke , it was chit-chat about the garbage" she sings "and I waved, then you got into the car/Just facing the day-to-day is such an act of courage." So, apparently is opening for Sammy Hagar, whome Daspit has been producing for the last five years and wholse latest single, "Sam I Am" was penned by Summerwood." - The Bohemian

Bio

The goldbrickers have been described as a young, contemporary California country band. Local music rags remarked that the band was "turning heads" and bringing a "breath of fresh" air to the local scene with their unique take on country music. Inspired by folk, bluegrass, rock n' roll, blues and r&b, the goldbrickers pay homage to American roots music while simultaneously offering some lyrical twists and positive energy, a fresh and soulful "country and west coast" sound. At the heart of the band is the musical partnership between Bob Daspit and Nicole Summerwood. Bob writes music, arranges, plays guitar, produces and everything in between, while Nicole is a prolific writer trying to catch up with the outpouring of songs that have been emerging since 2000. She writes about land, space, love and relationships in a heartbreakingly honest way while adding a dimension of transformation, spirituality and fun that speak more openly to contemporary audiences and keeps spirits high. Guitarist Bob Daspit with his energetic, often dazzling playing, summons the spirit of bluegrass to his more contemporary and unique guitar stylings. The goldbrickers create an inclusive, warm environment even when they are rockin' the house with their big california country sound. Accessible to country and non-country fans alike, they are building bridges and delivering the goods with their appealing brand of popular music. Kevin Russell host of "Down from the Mountain" KRCB radio show says, "...soulful, tough and tender vocals, inventive incendiary guitar work, top-notch songwriting, these folks have it all. "
