Biography

Goldmine Pickers have been brewing a fresh blend of acoustic music for audiences in the U.S. and Europe since 2003. Reviewers and concert-goers alike have reached for culinary terms to describe the music of the Midwest three-piece, including, “fresh”, “tasty”, “choice ingredients”, “savory”, and “a pleasing, hearty stew.” Described as having a “timeless approach yet a style that is uniquely their own,” the band effortlessly serves up a rich, fun blend of Americana, bluegrass, folk, old-time and Irish music—with dashes of country, and jam for good measure.

Nat Keefe of Hot Buttered Rum said, “From the first notes I heard, I was impressed with Goldmine Pickers. Solid vocals, good picking, tasty repertoire … it all mixes to be a pleasing, hearty stew. In the shows we did with them, I witnessed them take a room of people who had never seen them and turn them into fans.”

Goldmine Pickers have focused on crafting a unique sound that nods to Americana genres while crossing traditional borders to create a fresh new sound - one that draws audiences together. The band’s set at Chicago’s Old Town School of Folk Music in Chicago (June 2008) featured all original music. All three members share lead vocal and songwriting duties, and they strive to feature their original material. The Pickers “capture the audience” with “really nice, tight three-part harmonies,” described a reviewer at acousticguitar.com, who also wrote, “I was virtually stunned at the quality of play at the concert. chemistry and stage presence weighed nearly as much as musicianship in reasons for enjoying the concert.”
