First/Last – Northern Gold

October 4, 2016

“Northern Gold hopes to effectually tell the stories that inspired this soulful EP on every stage they play with a sensational show. The band began with just a few simple quiet tunes. And now from what once was a voice and an acoustic guitar in a living room room, the act has become a full on rock experience, performed by a soulful quintet sure to please an audience with their eclectic sound.”

Northern Gold is a Pittsburgh based acoustic rock band fronted by singer-songwriter Jake Anderkovitch (Guitar/Vocals). Their debut The Heart was Heavy came out last year and as they work on new music, join me in thanking Jake in participating in this edition of First/Last.
