Tell us a bit about yourself

My name is Albert Gold. I grew up singing in the church where I really was exposed to music and performing. Later on I decided to get into writing and being an artist and now I’m an independent recording artist. 

 

Why did you decide to study at ACC and did it help your career?

I studied in 2008, which was a while ago! My mate was getting an interview for the college and told me about it. She knew I wanted to get better and meet more industry so she told me to join, and I did!

I really wanted to be a better singer, I wanted to build my confidence and also get feedback and learn how to write songs. I’ve always wanted to perform but was way to scared to get on the stage.

 

How did you get started in the music industry and when did you know you wanted it to be your career?

A lot of putting myself in the spaces of the industry to be honest. I just made sure I was in peoples faces at all times and when there was a chance to do a show I was there!

I knew I wanted to sing from the age of 13 it was just the only way I could express myself .

I’m dyslexic and school , for me was hell so I ran to music and I haven’t turned back since.

 

So you have recently released your new single – what other projects are you working on at the minute?

I’ve had two EPs out and I’m putting out the third as a Trilogy through Fierce Panda! The new single is called satellite which I made with Sacha Skarbek. The EP will be out on the 10th July called MOOD. I’ve put a lot into this EP really excited for it.

I’m also doing a mini collaboration EP with a new artist called Drew the First and a collaboration project I’m doing with an amazing producer David Glenhill which is called Chilli Palmer. So, a lot of work is coming out this year and next.

What has been your career highlight to date?

I put a song with Bakermatt which has had about 5 millions streams. I also get a lot of messages from people who love the track all over the world. That has been the best highlight!

What advice would you have for anyone who wants to be in the music industry?

Do not let anyone tell you , you can’t do something, keep pushing and never let the words get into your head. There are ups and downs for sure. I’d say build yourself  up and find the right team of people and a manager that understands you and the art you love. I definitely found that. And never stop.
