Join BAAM at The Gem for the first live performance of 2023 with Maine-based Indie-Soul-Folk band GoldenOak Thursday, January 26th at 7:00 pm.
GoldenOak’s music is rooted in the natural landscape -- their songs move like a stream, meandering and weaving in an original yet grounding direction. Fronted by siblings Zak and Lena Kendall, GoldenOak’s music calmly excites its listeners while nestled in rich, folk-influenced sibling harmony.
The Maine-based band has built a steady and growing fan base with this kind of energetic intimacy. This is perfectly represented in the group’s latest album “Room to Grow”- a 10-song reflection of the emotional and physical impacts of the climate crisis. The band is rounded out by up-right bassist, Mike Knowles, and drummer, Jackson Cromwell.
GoldenOak will be joined by opener Seth Gallant. Seth Gallant grew up in a mill town in rural Western Maine to a family that played music on the front porch on almost any occasion. These traditions of folk, country and Acadian music would shape the songs he would come to create. 2022 saw the release of two new recordings. One, a stripped-down collection of finger-picked folk songs, the other an EP with the Vermont-based rock band, Great Western. Both showcase a gritty Americana sound that has come to define Gallant’s sound for years.
