GoldFord is a singer-songwriter based in Los Angeles, California. Not too long ago, he released a lovely retro-soul tune, entitled, “Ride the Storm.”
GoldFord – “Ride the Storm” single
“‘Ride the Storm’ reflects the collective anxiety that the world now lives in. There are no guarantees of anything, but we’re going to get through this together.” – GoldFord stated
‘Ride The Storm’ extends a warm embrace to listeners struggling with these unsettled times. The encouraging tune contains a comforting narrative, ear-pleasing vocalization, and tuneful melodies that will resonate well with fans of Leon Bridges, Michael Kiwanuka, and Wilder Woods. The soul-meets-pop tune possesses guitar-laden instrumentation flavored with a warm retro-soul vibration. Furthermore, “Ride the Storm” serves as a tasty appetizer to what listeners can expect to hear on GoldFord’s upcoming EP, entitled, “Dreams of Summertime,” available on June 4, 2021.
The six-track project focuses on the trials and tribulations of modern life. Also, it spans struggling to make ends meet and aspiring to better days ahead in the title track, to the raw, one-take home recording of the closing song, “Mine to Lose.”
“These songs are super-personal to me. They look at how our struggles become our lessons. We all have this journey where we attempt to overcome our pain and discover what that means and what that looks like. And when it comes to the self-doubt we’re all confronted with, we decide whether we should choose to stand up to it or let it fold us like a wet napkin.” – GoldFord explained
As unpleasant an experience as quarantine is, being forced into relative isolation proved to be the perfect recipe for Goldford to create a meaningful body of new songs, with no outside distractions or interruptions. He later took those songs into a Los Angeles studio with just two collaborators, the Grammy-nominated production duo Likeminds (John Legend, Ray BLK), and recorded both “Dreams of Summertime” and his forthcoming second EP.
GoldFord’s debut single, “Upside Down,” has accumulated over 30 million streams on Pandora in only one year. So far, he has collaborated with Sam Feldt, Lost Frequencies, and X Ambassadors. Also, he penned Andy Grammer’s hit song, “Give Love.” Goldford’s captivating voice can also be heard on hit shows “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Station 19,” as well as commercials for Jeep, CocaCola, and Brawny.
“Ride the Storm” single
‘Ride The Storm’ feels like a thematic sequel to Goldford’s “Walk With Me” single. The song displays a comforting message of unity as the world became disorientated by the lockdown. Also, it accumulated millions of streams and spent six weeks in the Shazam Top 5. Later, it made an impact in the UK when it was playlisted on Radio 2. While it captured the tumultuous emotions of the moment, it also introduced an audience to Goldford’s talents. His most recent collaboration, “Rise,” with Tomorrowland headliner, Lost Frequencies, is currently charting Top 40 in over six countries.
