Boy Golden - Minister

Ya Boy Golden, Liam Duncan, Minister

Everything becomes fluid when you can pass through time and space like a ghost, a story, a melody. Boy Golden manifests all three on For Jimmy.

When listening to his music, it feels easy to dissolve into the ether. Everything flows. From classic country to psych-folk, Alternative to roadhouse pop to Appalaichan bluegrass, Boy Golden’s music is easy, breezy, warm and gritty. And don’t it just feel good to listen to it.

Since releasing his debut album, Church of Better Daze, in 2021, he’s played every summer festival on your list, produced X albums with friends, released a dozen videos, curated and directed an art show and music video for “KD & Lunchmeat”, the Seth-Rogenesque hit single that charted to #1 on Alternative Radio, and toured more than 60 venues across North America with The Sheepdogs.

Introspective and vulnerable, traditional and queer, hard-headed and sensual, Boy Golden’s everyman-aesthetic can appeal to all of us. This ability lies in his songwriting: the songs your friends tell you about, the stories you hear from your neighbours, your community. He’s comfortable both in the spotlight and just outside it, sharing the moments with other artists, lifting others up along with him. He’s a genuine student of Townes Van Zandt and Willie Nelson as much as Dwight Yoakam and Stevie Ray Vaughan. Plus his C.O.B.D philosophy, “You can blaze and still get paid” might help us all to blur borders and old definitions of genres we thought we knew, like Steve Lacy or Justin Vernon do for Pop music.

Boy Golden is able to maintain his own unique blend of Boy Golden using whatever frame of mind he’s in to fit us into this time. We’re here right now.

Who We Are

The Church of Better Daze was founded by Boy Golden in the year 2020 A.D. (Afternoon Delight).

One day, Boy Golden awoke with a simple notion in his head; today is going to be a better day than the last one.

He got out of bed and meditated. He sat at his desk and wrote in his journal. He did some moderately taxing exercise. He made himself a couple cups of coffee, and a nice breakfast. He rolled himself a little joint, and went outside to take a few deep breaths of fresh air, mixed with a few deep breaths of the joint. Already, things were looking up.

He spent time writing, he called a friend. They made some music, and the day came to an end. And when he woke up, the very next day, he said to himself 'hey, that was pretty great!". So from that day forward, Boy Golden had purpose. Enjoying the day, and making good music. The Church of Better Daze is here to help anyone who wants to enjoy a better day or a better series of daze. To start, we recommend throwing on some Boy Golden, and mindfully enjoying a toke, a beverage, or a walk around the neighbourhood. We hope you'll join the church and come along for the ride.
