Debut Album out June
Goldfynch is a new collaboration of multi-award winning Guitarist/Composer Gavin Libotte and multilingual Singer/Songwriter Niyati Libotte. A haunting merger of tone, emotion and energy, Goldfynch mixes genres, blending jazz, acoustic pop, soft rock, classical and folk, with Indian, Latin, Jewish and French influences. By turns moody, cinematic and aspirational, the stories in song are – above all – human. Much like the symbol of the songbird itself, there’s an overarching message of hope and positivity through challenge and change.
Goldfynch draws on many influences, from Ella to Air, the Beatles to Radiohead, Madeleine Peyroux to A.R. Raiman, Eva Cassidy to Coldplay. The recordings draw on the talents of award winning Sydney musicians including Aria-winning bassist Jonathan Zwartz, National Jazz Awards finalist Thomas Avgenicos on trumpet, award-winning violinist Ben Adler, veteran drummer James Hauptmann, cellist/composer Damian De Boos Smith and pianist Bill Risby. The debut Single ‘Brighter Day’ drops April 16, and the album is due for release 11 June 2021.
