YOUTH AS GOLD
Youth as Gold is a band from Atlanta, Georgia that was formed in early 2016 by Dillon Wilson (guitar/vocals), and Kyle Henshaw (drums). The band began as a by-product of Wilson’s indie-folk outfit “The Lonely After All” which he debuted in 2014 alongside Henshaw and other members. Friends since high school, the two followed and supported each other's musical endeavors throughout their years there. When Wilson's band crashed, post-graduation, he moved closer to Atlanta and spent the next five years experimenting and writing/recording in his bedroom. Henshaw continued to expand his technique while growing a following on youtube, and steadily putting together his home studio. When Wilson approached Henshaw in late 2015 with the idea of a new project, they were ankle deep in a collection of classic rock cassettes that they had picked up from a local thrift store. Soon after, they began the process of re-composing and recording a handful of demos that Wilson had written over the years. "Honey" was the first fruits of that undertaking- recorded in their spare time between home studios, and released in late 2016; following the release of their single: "Another One for the Birds" recorded with Kevin Sellors at the Vault Recording Lounge in Marietta, GA. Over the next year they were joined by bassist Johnny Bernd, and guitarist Harrison Miller. Boasting a sound that blends 70’s, indie/modern rock, they have gained favor amidst the trending appreciation for lo-fi indie artists and the DIY crusade. Their debut full-length record: "NO GOOD SONS," was released on August 30th, 2017, and is the band's display of their own brand of dirty, loud, blues inspired rock which they hope will come to define them.
Formed and fine-tuned in basements throughout GA.
Wicked Animal was born in 2016 through the formation of two other Atlanta-based projects between its three members. Marcel, Tim and JT bonded over their love of guitar-based rock from the 90s and 2000s. They share a musical vision focused on a driving rhythm section, soaring vocals and a combination of crunchy, seething and atmospheric guitars.
