Portland indie-rock quartet Les Gold was founded by frontmen Jenson Tuomi and Travis Ezell out of a lifetime of friendship and musical exploration. Together with lead guitarist Tim Kaye and drummer Walter Stern, the band has cultivated a sound that mixed homegrown Northwest indie-rock with elements of folk rock, 1950’s r&b, dream pop, and a plethora of other influences. Showcasing a unique vocal blend between the two lead singers and complex yet catchy hooks throughout the songwriting and instrumentation, Les Gold demonstrates a dynamic body of work and a world of potential for the future.
Les Gold first started as a side project dating back to the four members meeting at Lincoln High School in Portland, OR. Built over years of trial, error, genre-shifting, and growth, the group was able to cement its sound and complete the final piece of the puzzle in working with renowned Portland producer, Bob Stark of Sonic Media Studios. Together they finished their debut EP, More Silver, in the Summer of 2018.
Within a week of publishing, More Silver had already been named an editor’s pick on major independent platforms such as CD Baby. A diverse 6-song collection, each track displays a new angle to the band and stokes the fires for their three new singles which are to be released in the Summer of 2019 (prod. by Ryan Furtlott of Rain City Studios).
