Pacific Gold is an indie-psych-gospel-folk group from Seattle, WA, playing "Repurposed Hymns & Spiritual Songs" -- taking lyric sets from old, sometimes forgotten hymns, and writing entirely new music to them: melodies, chords, arrangements. "The River," the band's first release (under the name Wayfarer), hit the web and record players on July 22, 2012, followed in November by "The Holly & the Ivy", Wayfarer's first re-write of a classic Christmas carol. "Holly" is paired with their cover of "Time to Get Alone", a wintry love song by the Beach Boys, as well as a live in-studio acoustic rendition of "Holly" recorded for the RELEVANT Magazine Podcast. The band released it's self-titled EP November 19th, 2013, and expects a full length album in early 2014.
