You're looking at the website for Golden Shoulders, a band from Nevada City, Calfornia. I'm sorry to say it's July 22, 2019 already.
July 22, 2019

Today's Golden Shoulders Fun Fact:
On this date in 1946, prominent American actor Danny Glover was born.

Mr. Glover filmed a movie called ''Highland Park'', and the music supervisor contacted us and wanted to use our song ''Nothing's All Right'' on the soundtrack for the movie. As big Danny Glover fans, we were excited by this prospect and enthusiastically agreed. And then that music supervisor got fired*, and our Hollywood dreams were crushed.

Seriously, it was like that time our A & R man didn't hear a single all over again.

*I should clarify that we have no reason to believe that the music supervisor was fired BECAUSE he wanted to use a Golden Shoulders song, so any speculation to that end is super mean and you should cut it out.

It's 2019 now. That seems so futuristic. Like we should be communicating through computers by now or something.

You can see our tour dates in that little box down there to the right; if we're touring, please come see us and bring a thousand friends. And suggest to your friends who live in towns where you don't live that they come see us too. If we have fun on tours, we'll tour more often. We're simple people that way. Other ways too.

Our latest full-length album (which shamefully came out years ago, but I promise we're recording new songs for a new album RIGHT NOW) is called "Get Reasonable," which is a fine title as well as perfectly good advice for your day to day life. You are able to buy it from us or from Clocktower Records in Grass Valley, CA (if you live near where we live), or from iTunes. If buying music is a foreign and terrifying notion to you, feel free to listen to us on Spotify. And we certainly hope you do.

Speaking of music accessibility, if you want to listen to most of our music from the past 17 years, you can get all of our recordings from the iTunes music store. Even the weird ones.

Questions and extravagant cash donations can be sent to You can find us on the once-popular Facebook internet service, if you're into that. Feel free to find us there. Be good!
