Welcome Jacob Golden

My name is Jacob Golden. I’m an indie singer/songwriter with an equal love for Nick Drake and The National. I make dark folk songs with psychedelic undertones. I don’t care about having a nice haircut or wearing trendy shoes; I care about writing good songs and connecting with people, and I pour my entire heart into my songs - it is what I’m meant to do. I’m based in Sacramento CA but I’ve spent most of my time in England where I was previously signed to Rough Trade Records by founder Geoff Travis (The Smiths, The Fall, Antony and The Johnsons) and The Echo Label (Bat for Lashes, Ray Lamontagne). Mojo called my last album, “Revenge Songs”, “the most gorgeous break-up record since Beck’s ‘Sea Change’” and Jools Holland had me on his TV show. My third album, and my first to be released in the US, is called “The Invisible Record”, out on January 22nd on my own imprint Zero Integrity Records. More
