Exposing the pains of severed relationships and unearthing the pursuits of love and purpose, Goldpine is cathartic, moody, dissonant, and relevant. After nearly a decade of honing in on their sound, they’re ready to give the world their self-produced LP, One. The debut album is a snapshot of this season of their lives — symbolizing a new beginning and an homage to the halcyon journey under their previous band name “My One and Only”. Laced with bold vocal harmonies and fervent lyrics, One is the perfect introduction to Goldpine.
From festivals like 30A Songwriting Festival and Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion, to listening rooms throughout the United States, Ben and Kassie have been offering their own brand of raw Americana to audiences large and small. WINNER of the 2022 Rocky Mountain Songwriter Contest and Finalists in the Kerrville Folk Fest 2021 New Folk Competition, the duo’s bold harmonies are clearly a channel for their highly charged songwriting. Presented the “Discovery Award” in 2018 by acclaimed music critic, Robert K. Oermann (Music Row Magazine), Ben and Kassie declared performance as their love-share to the world, and since then, have maintained the love and commitment they put into their shows.
“Goldpine is folksy and falls within the Americana genre but their musical arrangements are very innovative and eclectic.” – Melissa Clarke (Americana Highways, July 7, 2022)
