Golden Bloom

An ability to play a large crop of instruments with equal amounts of precision and passion allows Golden Bloom frontman, Shawn Fogel, to take the wheel in his own band while holding on to his solo roots. Blossoming into an artist who is as comfortable solo as he is with a band, he now calls seasoned veterans such as Michael Azerrad (Come as You Are: The Story of Nirvana, Our Band Could Be Your Life) his band mates when calling in for back-up.

Currently in the studio with producer/engineer Peter Katis (The National, Interpol, Mates of State), Fogel plans to release Golden Bloom’s first LP in early 2009. Taking a cue from its first single, “The Fight at the End of the Tunnel”, the new LP directs much attention at today’s shifting political climate and the state of our turbulent society. Hopes for constructive political change and undertones of doomsday devices all settle in fittingly with Fogel’s brand of power-pop rock.

Virtually playing all the musical instruments on his five solo albums, Fogel’s most recent EP, One Day in the Desert, garnered distribution through recordhead (former label home of Guided by Voices’ Robert Pollard). Collecting accolades for its Americana homage and power-pop sensibilities, WXPN’s Bruce Warren praised “Fogel manages to offer a fresh take on ye olde tradition of sensitive power pop.” Recommended!

Golden Bloom really rocks! They'll definitely come to next big thing if every song on their full length album has the same quality of "The Fight At The End Of The Tunnel". Cannot wait to listen to their next steps!!
