    Goldberg

    Soul-Blues

    When Goldberg was 14 years old, he put pen to paper, with a guitar in his hand and music in his heart. It started so simple. His voice and an acoustic guitar was all it would take for him to bring his ideas to life, and share his love of music with the world. As the words flowed, and the chords played, he could feel the love of music growing, he knew that he was now, hooked for life. 


    He began his singing career with the Atlanta Young Singers , in Atlanta, Georgia, a world renowned children's choir, at the age of 11. He begged his parents to let him join, motivated, at the time, by the fact it would allow him to step out on the grass of Turner Field, the former home of the Atlanta Braves, the baseball team he grew up loving from a young age. Knowing he had the opportunity to sing the national anthem in front of thousands of people on the same field as the team gave him the drive he needed. The more he learned, the more motivated he became. With a fiery passion, and determined spirit, Goldberg continued to work towards his dream of being a lead singer.
    "I started off with the cello, which definitely helped train my ear for music. I won't lie I hated playing it, loved the way it sounded, but I really wanted to learn the piano. When I quit, everyone told me I would regret it, and in a lot of ways I do. But at the same time, all I truly wanted to do was sing with a band, and sing with soul."

    Until this point, Goldberg has been funding his dream with money he has earned from helping other artists and businesses with different kinds of promotional tools and projects. He edits and shoots his own videos, using a collection of equipment that has been slowly building over time. Constantly floating at zero, all to make his dream possible.
    "I almost died a few years ago, and it was a serious wake up call for me. It was a complication from what was supposed to be a simple proceedure, and it showed me how fleeting life really is. I was in and out of the hospital for a period of 3 weeks. Lost my apartment, and virtually all of my worldly possessions. I was working six days a week as an assistant manager at a Subway. Then I would go home, and work all night on music, barely getting any sleep. I realized then, that if I was working in any other field other than entertainment. I would die, pretty much literally." He said with an uneasy chuckle. 

    In July of 2016, Goldberg made his first major music video and single release. A funky, soulful tune, called, "Let's Dance ." Though the budget was small, the will to produce a work of art was strong. With a lot of hard work and determination, the video turned into a success, receiving over 46,000 views on YouTube. The video gained even more notoriety when Goldberg was selected as the Artist of the Month by thearkofmusic.com (you can hear his phone interview with The Ark Of Music in full by clicking HERE ). Goldberg also received the honor of Artist of the Week from Kennesaw State's Owl Radio , which helped push his name further into the music world. 

    "I have given this all I have, my whole life. All the blood, sweat, tears and money I can muster. Luckily for me, I recently found a crew of people who see that, and truly value my music. They have dedicated a lot of time and effort themselves, and it motivates me more than I have ever been before. My biggest fear is letting them down, falling short when I know in the deepest part of my heart we are really good at what we do. Failure is not an option for me... So I really, really, hope that people can see all of the hard work, see that we aren't just playing around, and I hope they can find it in their hearts to help us get it out there too the world."
