Scott Goldbaum is an acclaimed multi-instrumentalist and songwriter whose credits include Sting, LAUV, Keith Urban, Skylar Grey, Charlotte Lawrence and Maddie Poppe, and his new single, 'Mourning Coffee' arrives as the second cut off of his upcoming debut solo EP 'Protector' set for release later this year.
Prior to his five year hiatus from releasing music, Scott Goldbaum's speciality was in providing “transient and breathtaking guitar work” (The Deli Magazine) as well as “beautifully textured vocals” (Indie Music Filter) both on stage and in the studio fronting his former bands Forebear, Wise Cub and The Harm.
With songwriting cuts regarded by Consequence of Sound “as an exhilarating testament to abilities” his brand new EP is sure to satisfy fans of the artists whose music inspired the production including Chris Isaak, Radiohead, Bombay Bicycle Club and Damien Rice.
'Protector' is his self produced folk-infused indie rock EP with lush string arrangements by Molly Rogers (Hans Zimmer, Game of Thrones), upright bass from Kaveh Rastegar (Sting, John Legend, Bruce Springstein), drums/percussion by Kiel Feher (Selena Gomez, Zella Day) and mixing from the famed ScottGordon (Alannis Morissette, Alexi Murdoch).
Thematically, the record follows a vulnerable character who’s in need of protection as he becomes the protector of others. In contrast to the beginning of the EP, 'Mourning Coffee' makes a distinction between codependency and partnerships that are chosen and decisively cared for while the world is falling apart around you.
