October Gold, an acoustic alt-folk duo based out of Montreal, is the latest collaboration of singer/songwriter Kit Soden and his partner in music (and life), violinist Aliza Thibodeau. This marriage of Soden's folksy roots and Thibodeau's classical sensibilities has created a unique sound that has been described as "painting your imagination with song."
Since 2010, October Gold has been quietly captivating audiences across North America and Europe. But it is the recent release of their first album, Into the Silence, that has shown the world the maturity that this duo has developed in such a short period of time.
Aside from the noticeable chemistry between these two emerging artists, October Gold has managed to bring together a collection of brilliant musicians during the recording of their album. Over 20 different instruments came together to create the mythical symphonic sounds of Into the Silence, including brass quintet, harp, and church organ. The result of this unique collaboration, recorded in the attic of a mid-19th Century Vermont farmhouse, is a combination of powerful orchestral emotions and knee-slapping, hoe-down riffs.
October Gold continues to tour North America and Europe, and is in the studio recording a new full length album as well as a live DVD.
