The maverick innovator – who rewrote the future of the jungle scene with landmark releases has a unique story to tell. From children’s homes in the West Midlands through stints in New York and Miami as one of the UK’s most celebrated exponents of graffiti art to rubbing shoulders with an exceptional list of musical collaborators including David Bowie, Noel Gallagher and KRS One, Goldie has always been one of a kind.
Collaborators on ‘The Journey Man’ album include vocalist and songwriter Natalie Duncan, who was discovered when chosen in the three-part BBC series ‘Goldie’s Band By Royal Appointment’ and later provided the vocals for Goldie’s 2012 single ‘Freedom’.
Other featured vocalists on the album include Terri Walker, Tyler Lee Daly, Natalie Williams, José James, Naomi Pryor as well as Goldie’s wife, Mika Wassenaar Price.
Goldie is also one of only a handful of artists ever to co-write with David Bowie – on the track ‘Truth’ from the drum‘n’bass pioneer’s second album, ‘Saturnz Return’. The album also featured distinguished collaborators such as Noel Gallagher and KRS-One, and hit number 15 on the UK Albums Chart upon its release in 1998.
Goldie will be performing an exclusive, sold-out set of shows at London’s esteemed venue Ronnie Scott’s on 24th and 25th of February, where he will be performing with the Heritage Ensemble along with ‘The Journey Man’ vocalists Terri Walker, Tyler Lee Daly, Vanessa Haynes and Natalie Duncan.
