Electro-pop singer-songwriter and producer Goldroom released his debut full-length album “West of the West” on Friday (Sept .23). Goldroom, the stage name for Boston native Josh Legg, will be co-headlining a 29-date North American tour with Autograf.
Legg took to Instagram to share his excitement for his album release. “3 years of sitting alone with my guitar, 50 demos sitting in my album playlist, dozens of songwriting sessions with friends and talented collaborators, what feels like years of producing and tweaking and trying to get everything just right – they’ve all lead here,” he captioned.
The wait is over. I’m so proud to be able to type the words that West Of The West, my debut album, is out today. 3 years of sitting alone with my guitar, 50 demos sitting in my album playlist, dozens of songwriting sessions with friends and talented collaborators, what feels like years of producing and tweaking and trying to get everything just right – they’ve all lead here. I’d like to let the music speak for itself but I just want to say that all I wanted out of myself was to write the most honest songs that I could, and I wanted them to work as a cohesive whole. These aren’t the 10 best songs I wrote over the last few years. They’re the 10 right songs to tell the story of this record. I’m very proud of it and I hope that you’ll decide to buy the record or stream it or download it and that you’ll find something special in it to make it yours. Much love to everyone.
