A lot of musical transplants find themselves in the sunny city of Los Angeles, but few pay tribute to the city they call home in such a candid way. Armed with a stunning voice and a pensive approach to song writing, Golda May captures the disillusionment of many young artists chasing their dreams in the less than angelic City of Angels on “Dear Los Angeles.” The songwriter started earning some early attention with the release of her 2019 single, “Wish I Was Someone Else,” but it looks like 2020 will be an even bigger year for Golda. She released her sophmore single, “Under,” late last year and now “Dear Los Angeles” is slowly making its rise. Take the new single for a spin and then make sure you like/follow Golda to stay ahead of more tracks from this songwriter as they come out. You don’t want to miss out.  Golda May is a Ukrainian-American artist who blends authentic alt melodies and lyrics with pop sensibility. Golda’s soft and intimate vocals encompass an astonishing spectrum of moods, sounds, and intensities, from ethereal and other-wordly to dark and resonant.


Super talented singer songwriter Golda Maygolda has just released a new single called ‘Dear Los Angeles’. Her vocals need to be heard to be believed. With success singles ‘Wish I Was Someone Else’ and ‘Under’ already under her belt Golda is an artist to watch. Her unique vocals are showcased in ‘Dear Los Angeles’ as the song is stripped back with just gentle guitar playing supporting the vocals. “Dear Los Angeles,”  is a frangible acoustic memorandum to the city that’s part love letter and part therapy session. It’s a change-of-pace from her previous two singles, “Under” and “Wish I Was Someone Else,” a pair of crisply produced alt-pop singles that revealed her skills as a confessionalist.


She is well-equipped to sound that way. Reared in Chicago and San Diego by Ukrainian parents who spoke nothing but Russian at home, she wrote her first song as a 7th-grader (and it was titled “Genocide in Darfur”), graduated high school at age 16 and had founded a non-profit before she was out of her teens. The first Golda music appeared in 2015 when she was still studying business at UC Berkeley.

“I started taking song writing more seriously in college when I began recording an EP after a school trip to India,” Golda says. “When I was 22, I worked as an assistant for a music manager who sort of ‘discovered’ me as a songwriter and started developing me, leading me to get really involved in the L.A. music writing scene. I turned my attention to my own artist project after really missing writing songs that felt like me, like Golda.”
