Michael Gold - Easy But Deep & Mysterious Too.


Michael Goh or Gold is a pleasure to listen as the songs recorded suit his style: easy, calm, reassuring and provocative. There's an incitement about his vocalization, deep and mysterious.
He sings for pleasure and was part of a duet with his brother when they won the Amateur Nite Contest at the Capitol Cinema in the 60s. Michael went on to sing at functions, nitespots and recorded songs by Martin & Presley in his own elegant manner. His Xmas album has a truly yuletide feel.
Gold is a pseudonym as the CDs were released in the U.S. only and not for local consumption.
Michael Gold stands tall with his CDs.
