“Golden State” is an over all narrative of my time spent in Northern California. I sat on my hotel bed peering out the window over the airport, thinking about all things I had done up there, hiking through the Redwoods, cruising the coast, that Golden state of mind thing;) Some songs I work for, but this one poured out quicker than I could get it down. In addition to Elliott’s warm and sincere harmonies, I feel the pedal steel on this track really brings it to life and gives it that little something I was hoping it would find.
