The Austin based producer, guitarist, and Emmy-winning musician, Derek VanScoten, better known as Cloudchord has been effortlessly creating soulful compositions full of intricate guitar for the past couple of years. With tracks like “Sunlit” and “Stay Puff” his laid back and soothing style truly takes ahold and transports the listener to a place of stillness. Now, for his next feat he tackles one of Bronze Whale’s tracks, “Gold Grain” which speaks to the cycle of work hard and play hard. In his rendition, Derek uses delicate vocal harmonies along with groovy guitars and funky piano to slow the track down just a bit, yet he still manages to keep all the energy of the original. As the hi hats ring through the speakers, Benny’s voice shortly follows and ensures that your foot keeps tapping and head keeps bobbing. With birds flying in the background, let Cloudchord introduce you to your next favorite song. Also, be on the lookout for Bronze Whale to release their full remix package for their album The Shape of Things, in July.
