Jacob Golden

Jacob Golden is a result of listening to some radiostation....

Born in California in the early '70s and raised on pop radio and later hip-hop, Jacob Golden developed his appreciation for music through a variety of sources that culminated first with Jeff Buckley and then, through Buckley's version of "Lilac Wine," Nina Simone. "Nina is the master of expressing a sad song," says Golden, explaining that for him it's about "capturing the most emotional and real and genuine thing. Not about technically, was that a good vocal?" David Kosten (Faultline), the producer on Golden's debut EP, "Jacob Golden", influenced his search for the essence of the emotion, rather than a pristine sound.
