about the band

Led by the dynamic Juniper Waller, the group is made up of young talent hailing from the Bay and Sacramento areas. With Darius Upshaw on guitar, Alex Severson on the keys, Billy D. Thompson on the drums, and Jace Dorn on bass, each member has a hand in writing and song composition, making The Gold Souls a truly collaborative effort. 

The Gold Souls burst on the Sacramento music scene in early 2017, and are swiftly becoming one of the most promising new talents in the area.

They released a self- titled five song EP in May of 2017 and went on tour down the California coast soon after. Their next single, “Nobody,” was released in late 2017 and was featured on Apple Music Blues’ Hot Tracks list. They released their full length album “Good To Feel” on June 22, 2018.

Their next single, “True Blue” was produced/engineered by multi-Grammy winner Timothy Bloom and was released on February 12, 2019. This past April the band went on tour through southern California, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, and New Orleans.

The Gold Souls released another new single August 15th in advance of their Southern California mini-tour, and are are now working on their new album due out in early 2020. They have plans for a tour of the Northwest this October.
