A Letter to You from Goldfinch – Summer 2011

Goldfinch Family, Goldfinch has recently lost and added some very precious components as a band. Choosing to move forward with the Goldfinch project was a difficult decision, one that I second-guessed at several turns. However, I have been amazed and energized by all the changes, both small and large. The refashioning of the Goldfinch lineup, has somehow managed to push the musical and artistic ceiling for Goldfinch far beyond what I ever expected. The addition of Emily on cello and vocals has stretched our imagination and created a soundscape that is achingly beautiful. We’ve also welcomed Mikey on bass guitar. His work ethic, combined with his good-natured and well-mannered demeanor would make any southern mother…

Ta-Da! Goldfinch Releases New Music

Dec 18th 2010

Yay! We are so stoked & a little tired, too, BUT our two new songs have been shipped off through the internet to the talented T.W. Walsh to be mastered & then released on December 18th. “Vacant Lot” with the B side, “Elephant”, mark the first time we’ve actually recorded as a full band since our whole first album was Aaron & Grace + friends filling in on instruments. Listening to theses songs on repeat has been stunning & we couldn’t be more excited to start off our series of single releases with them. Happy Winter to you all & come out to see us at our release show on December 18th at Columbia City…
