Goliath is a beautiful accident. At Tommy's Tavern in Brooklyn, NY - Brian and Chris were to play a duo improvisational gig to a tiny, packed room of pogo-ing hellcats and hipsters. Chris invited Drew to sit in. There were no tunes, no plans, and most of all - no fear. Just the right potion of musicality, shared history and daring required for exquisite risk - and reward.
Since that frigid February night, Goliath has become a surging force in the New York rock scene. The Goliath sound is contagious and surfable; a forceful, sublime blend of soaring riffs, powerful hooks, thunderous drums and high wire vocals all carrying a message of workingman's spirituality and artistry.
Working in none other than the mighty Sonic Youth's Think Tank Studio (Hoboken, NJ) with the well-respected Chris Gefken at the helm, Goliath has released their first 3 song EP "Save It For Yourself". Songs from this release and other live cuts can be heard @ their website www.GoliathRocksNY.com. A full length release is due in early 2009.
