** ALBERT GOLD PERFORMS 'MIRACLES' ON 'SECOND' EP... **
**…AND HEADLINES THE WAITING ROOM ON AUGUST 30TH! **
Hackney soulman ALBERT GOLD strides across the blood on the tracks of Northeast London when he travels over to Stoke Newington to headline The Waiting Room on Thursday August 30th - full details below.
The show is a last hurrah for Albert's mightily excellent second 'Second' EP which was played by Craig Charles on BBC Radio and saw him shortlisted at the Unsigned Music Awards for Best Songwriter, alongside the likes of Jorja Smith and Carmody.
Expect ravishing new Albert Gold material in the autumn. In the meantime the 'Second' EP, which features the recklessly uplifting 'Miracles' single, lives here: smarturl.it/albertgold_secondep

The ‘Second’ EP is indeed the second of three Albert Gold Extended Play releases slated to come out over the course of the year, the first being the oft-admired ‘Oxygen’ EP. Bolstered by live shows for Vice, Communion, Tipping Point, BMI / The Fix, London In Stereo, Sofar Sounds and Good Karma, and backed by consistent airplay support from Huw Stephens at Radio 1 and Gary Crowley at BBC Introducing London, Albert Gold put the finishing touches to the ‘Second’ EP at Red Bull Studios in South London late last year. More new Golden tunes coming real soon…
“A remarkably infectious introduction. Controlled, assured songwriting, it finds beauty in darkness.”
“More than anything else, an opportunity to sit back and luxuriate in Albert’s ridiculously wonderful vocal.”
“Described as a bridge between Frank Ocean and Luther Vandross, Gold doesn’t just go heavy on emotion, or melody, or rhythm - he excels in all areas.”
