Walking down 6th street in Austin, it was James Dale’s  voice that called me up to the 512 Rooftop.

Once there, it was all of Goldheart Assembly that won me over with strong melodies, tight harmonies, and well-crafted pop songs.  Their performance earned them the MMT Sammy Award for Best Debut (Foreign) at SXSW 2011.

Goldheart Assembly released their debut album Wolves and Thieves in 2010, and are working on a followup for release in Spring 2012.  You can sample some performances and get more information from their featured artist profile, available from the dropdown list at the top of each page and previewed below.
