Gold Rush channel the musical spirit and artistry of Neil Young with an authentic sound, delivering all the classics and a few hidden gems with passion and energy.
Gold Rush cover everything from Neil’s most intimate acoustic moments such as Old Man, Needle and the Damage Done and Heart of Gold, to the more upbeat and country tunes such as Comes a Time and Are You ready For the Country climaxing with his face-melting, mind bending guitar wig outs of Down By The River, Southern Man and Rockin In The Free World!
Fronting Gold Rush is Tom Billington who says: “Neil is my Elvis... he ticks every box for me. Sometimes, when you've been listening to a lot of Neil Young, everything else sounds small and shallow. He does what he wants, when he wants to and is true to the music and the inspiration at all times...
Gold Rush is just me and a bunch of like minded Neil fans who happen to be able to pull it off! These songs have been under my skin since I was a kid.” Gold Rush started life in 2012 playing pubs and clubs as The Honeyslides, although Tom Billington (Neil!), Luke Scurr (Guitar, Piano, Vocals) and Hannah Billington (Guitar, Vocals) have been singing Neil songs together since they were children.
Professional rhythm section and fellow Neil fans Elias Gargallo Aguilella (Drums) and Micky Englert (Bass) complete the line-up with their sensitive and dynamic playing.
