Meet the Gold Rush Kid.
He’s toured the world, toured it some more, then met himself coming back the other way. He’s felt the green, green grass under his feet and the blue, blue sky on his back. A traveller, an entertainer, he’s a man in pursuit of happiness, and of sharing that happiness. Aided and abetted by an eight-piece musical band of brothers and sisters, he’s bounced from Budapest to Barcelona to, more recently, far Manila.
The Kid knows that to come home, he has to go away, but that each makes the other all the sweeter. As for the gold rush, it’s not the destination, it’s the journey. It’s the power of positivity, the sugar-rush of hope, the promise of uplift. And in 2022, who doesn’t want – need – that?
“The Gold Rush Kid? That’s me,” says George Ezra, reflecting on the title of his third record – a 12-strong suite of songs, produced by long standing wingman Joel Pott, that “sound like me. That’s what ties them together.” After two blockbuster albums – Wanted On Voyage (2014) and Staying At Tamara’s (2018), both of which sold by the truckload round the world, and the latter of which won him the 2019 Brit Award for British Male Solo Artist – it was time to return to heart and hearth, with an album written and produced entirely in London.
