October Gold, an 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 described as “painting your imagination with song.”
What do you get when you combine Jon Stevens (Noiseworks/INXS), Brian Tichy (Whitesnake), Richard Fortus (Guns N Roses), Marco Mendoza (Thin Lizzy), David Lowy (Mink/The Angels), and Dizzy Reed (Guns N Roses)? The answer….you get The Dead Daisies. The Dead Daisies sound is created around the tracks written by Stevens & Lowy which is based on the music they both love – classic late ‘70s early ‘80s hard rock, in that soulful Bad Company meets Foreigner via The Faces kind of vibe – big choruses, powerful melodies, and strong hooks.
