Gold Shoes

Gold Shoes was formed in 2009 in Cincinnati, Ohio. Their current lineup consists of Buggs Tha Rocka (lead vocals/MC), Archie Niebuhr (lead vocals/rhythm guitar), Steven Shaefer (lead guitar/saxophone/backing vocals), Mike Weigand (keyboards/backing vocals), Kevin Johnson (bass guitar) and Tony Kuchma (percussion). Fueled by the various musical backgrounds of the six members, Gold Shoes creates a collective sound that blurs the lines between hip-hop, rock, jazz and blues music. Gold Shoes released their debut recording effort, the Gold Shoes EP, in November of 2009. The band has taken the stage in support of several national acts including Wiz Khalifa, Wale, Big Sean, Kings Of Leon and The Black Keys; they have also performed for events sponsored by Landor International and CityBeat. The band began recording their first full-length album, the Gold Shoes LP, in the spring of 2011; it is scheduled for release in April 2012. In October of 2011, Gold Shoes released the first single from their upcoming album, “Trade Your Wings,” online as well as producing a music video for the song. A second single and music video are scheduled to be released prior to the album debut.

Gold Shoes is currently an independent act but seeking major label representation.
