JPR Live Session: Boy Golden

Ways To Subscribe

The Winnipeg-based singer/songwriter (aka Liam Duncan) assembled a few friends in his backyard to play us some tunes from the new record called Church of Better Daze.

After spending many years in the band Middle Coast, Duncan tried his hand as a solo artist and toured in the band of s a band member with The Bros. Landreth. But it was a chance meeting with a gospel musician (and serious smoker) that sparked the creative idea behind the character of Boy Golden - the self-proclaimed founder and minister of the Church Of Better Daze.

On his catchy debut album Church of Better Daze, Boy Golden has captured the sensibility of pseudo-virtual house of worship that celebrates community, positivity, stoner culture, and generally having a good time.

Boy Golden says that everyone who joins the congregation via the website www.churchofbetterdaze.com will be sent a special welcome package.

You can also text 450-800-2205 to join, though Duncan says he hasn't quite figured out how to do the welcome package via the texting option quite yet.
