Canadian singer-songwriter, Goldilox has just released her highly-anticipated disco album, Very Best on July 31, 2018. The album features seven tracks including the first single, “I Love You”. We had a chat with Goldilox for our newest segment of Five Questions With, so check that out below, and watch the video for “I Love You”.
Care to introduce yourself to our readers?
My name is Goldilox and I am a singer and a DJ. I’m originally from Nova Scotia, Canada, but I moved to Los Angeles for a period of time then moved to Paris, France. This is where I currently live and work.
Tell us a bit about your music and writing style.
In my lyrics, I don’t filter my adventures, my experiences, or my disillusions. This is how I find myself and proclaim my artistic freedom. I also work with TheOnlyG – he produces my songs. Funny enough, we always try and top each other’s ideas and it gets pretty intense. It’s a strange and amazing combination that most people don’t understand but he ignites a certain fire in me. Fire is energy and you need a lot of energy in order to execute your ideas. Just the sheer amount of content we are pushing out between the two of us gets me tripping. What Jean Paul is to Grace Jones…that’s G to me.
Do you have any upcoming shows? For someone who has yet to see you live, how would you explain your live performance?
Every live show is different but my goal is to fill the room with an insane amount of energy. This energy is unique to each song and depends on the mood I’m trying to convey. For example, my single “I Love You” is my interpretation of love and disco – it’s soulful and funky. When I perform this song in front of a crowd, these are the energies I want everyone to experience.
If you were asked to suggest only one of your songs for someone to hear, what would it be?
Right now, “Sex Paranoia” because I just shot a music video for it.
Canadian Beats is all about Canadian music, so who are your favourite Canadian artists/bands?
DVSN, Majid Jordan, Roy Woods and PartyNextDoor are all dope and queen Céline Dion.
I’m Jenna, and I am the founder and editor of Canadian Beats. I have had a strong love for Canadian music, which started many years ago. I have a passion for promoting these talented Canadian bands and artists, and that’s how Canadian Beats came to be. I am so proud of what it has become over the last few years, with many talented music lovers and writers coming together to spread the word of Canada’s music.
