Additional Information

Golden Bloom is Shawn Fogel's soaring vocals, shimmering guitar hooks; whizzing keyboards and twinkling sounds. In fact, Golden Bloom is all Shawn Fogel. Under the moniker Golden Bloom, Fogel constructs intelligent contemporary indie power pop that rivals like-minded peers such as Wilco, Matt Pond PA,and Ben Kweller. The singer and multi-instrumentalist is so fully committed to his music that when he records an album, he plays nearly every instrument himself; tracking layers of his own vocal melodies for some of the purest and most encouraging indie pop out today. 

(BOSTON)
Since releasing their self-titled debut in 2007, Boston's The Grownup Noise have evolved into a rousing indie- pop outfit, bridging the gap between americana and indie, who've shared stages with everyone from comedian Patton Oswalt to fellow avant-baroque musicians like Dresden Doll Amanda Palmer, Thao with the Get Down Stay Down(Kill Rock Stars), and acclaimed Canadian barnstormers Rock Plaza Central. Fast forward several years and various enriching personal pursuits, and the band is finally gearing up for its playful, poignant new LP, This Time with Feeling, set for release in late spring, 2011. Described by the Portland Press Herald (ME) as a combination of "smart lyrics with keen vocals," adding that "its songs are doses of melodic sunshine," The Grownup Noise has maintained and built on its fanbase during the intervening years through a savvy combination of eccentric pop songs, natural talent and determination.
