Delta, Chicago, and the Piedmont of Virginia, he has always felt most connected to the
blues. First picking up the guitar at age 19, Golden did what came naturally and let the
music flow through him. With an extremely diverse musical palette, Golden aims to
bring some new ideas to traditional blues forms.

the Piedmont style, Golden began diving into the origins of the blues and implementing
elements of Delta blues, Gospel blues, Ragtime, and Folk music He seemed destined
to play the blues in his own way. Today you can hear the effects of how these early
forms have influenced Golden’s blues.
