Still working on that hot first release.



In just two short years, the genre-bending Goldwing has shared stages with 54-40, Treble Charger, USS, The Mahones and The Stellas, were named finalists in Canada’s Walk of Fame Emerging Artist Mentorship Program, taken home first place in two song-writing contests, released their eleven-track debut album and become a fixture in the Kingston music scene. “No Place Like Home” marks the birth of the Goldwing sound.

Industry recognition arrived quickly in spite of the group’s short existence. After placing first in the Renaissance Song Writing Contest for “L-L-Love”, Gollogly’s father secretly entered “Almost Famous” into The Great American Song Writing Contest (Nashville), for which his son received top honours. The younger Gollogly returned his father’s favour by donating the prize money to help purchase a new car for his parents. And more recently being finalists in Canada’s Walk of Fame Emerging Artist Mentorship Program where they had a chance to meet with Universal Music.

Today, the core members of Goldwing are Ryan Gollogly (lead singer/songwriter, guitarist), Nick “Pickins” Patterson (banjo/vocals), Matt Kirby (electric guitar/vocals), Matt “Jeebs” Simpson (bass) with a revolving cast of musicians joining the band on stage to add drums and female vocals. Gollogly has since filled his songbook twice over again, and the band is now recording their new compositions for a second Goldwing album, projected for release in 2018. The darker nature of Gollogly’s latest songs has resulted in a work where each piece shares a thematic link, as the vulnerable singer reveals his deepest fears while searching for answers in the face of impossible difficulties. Considering the obstacles faced thus far by the singer, it is almost certain that his current struggles will yield a new progressive music with a message that will resonate with all lovers of music.
