The Gold Setting Share Debut Single w/ Galore + Announce ‘Volume and Tone’ EP Out 4/7

The face and voice of The Gold Setting is Liza Colby. Channeling sensual 1960s soul, 1990s R&B, and Tina Turner-esque swagger, The Gold Setting boasts a fluid cast of all-stars including multi-instrumentalist/composer/arranger Todd Simon (Ghostface Killah, Sharon Jones, Lily Allen), Grammy-nominated Adam Berg (Decoders), and songwriter/producer/musician Richard Rudolph (Stevie Wonder, Minnie Riperton, A Tribe Called Quest, 2Pac, Chaka Kahn, En Vogue).

Today, The Gold Setting announce their debut Volume and Tone EP set for release on April 7th and reveal the infectious first single Being Without You” via Galore. Listen here.

In 2015, Liza was presented with a “golden moment” – a perfect pocket of time where she had a chance to head to Los Angeles and collaborate with Todd Simon who then enlisted Adam Berg. Despite having no songs and never having worked together, Liza impulsively popped the question to do a show, and Todd and Adam signed on for the adventure. The trio had 12 days to spin yarns into gold. Immediately, sessions began at Manifest Music (Adam Berg’s studio) in Santa Monica. Liza soon found herself creating with a full house of iconic collaborators and musicians spanning genres and generations.

The result manifested in the form of the Volume and Tone EP – a four track collection that melds vintage instrumentation, bold electro-pop textures, and rugged beats with timeless Motown-tinged songcraft. Organic yet electrified, the tracks were recorded using a blend of old school 50s/60s techniques and modern technology, bringing out the authentic tones of the instruments yet delivering an explosive sound.
