Austin Gold Be­fore Dark Clouds Jig­saw

Austin Gold has been around since 2013, bat­tling it out on the UK live scene and build­ing them­selves a tidy rep­u­ta­tion on the cir­cuit for be­ing an ex­hil­a­rat­ing band to ex­pe­ri­ence in the flesh. This de­but rep­re­sents the cul­mi­na­tion of all their hard work and graft so far and harks back to the clas­sic rock and blues era where bands like Bad Com­pany, Free and Hum­ble Pie were rock­ing venues world­wide. The duo of David Smith and Jack Cable lay down some for­mi­da­ble guitar lines un­der­pinned by Lee Churchill’s bass, Rus­sel Hill’s key­boards and Chris Og­den’s drums. Over­due for a se­ri­ous breakthrough, hope­fully Be­fore Dark Clouds will be the ve­hi­cle for the band’s de­served suc­cess.
