You're looking at the website for Golden Shoulders, a band from Nevada City, Calfornia. I'm sorry to say it's April 1, 2015 already.

Today's Golden Shoulders Fun Fact:
On this date in 2011, Golden Shoulders and Brett Shady played a special April Fool's Day show at the Basement in Nevada City, California. Those pranksters dazzled the audience by hilariously flubbing chords and lyrics throughout their respective sets, making it appear as though they had no business whatsoever performing music for a paying audience. Hilarious!

It's 2015 now. That seems so futuristic. Like we should be communicating through computers by now or something.

You can see our tour dates in that little box down there to the right; if we're touring, please come see us and bring a thousand friends. And suggest to your friends who live in towns where you don't live that they come see us too. If we have fun on tours, we'll tour more often. We're simple people that way. Other ways too.

Our latest full-length album (which shamefully came out years ago, but I promise we're working on new songs) is called "Get Reasonable," which is actually perfectly good advice for your day to day life. You are able to buy it from us or from Clocktower Records in Grass Valley, CA (if you live near where we live), or from iTunes. And we certainly hope you do.

Speaking of music accessibility, if you want to listen to most of our music from the past twelve years, you can now get all of our albums from the iTunes music store. Even the weird ones.

Questions and extravagant cash donations can be sent to You can now find us on the popular Facebook internet service, if you're into that. Feel free to find us there. Be good!
