Debuting with the Angeles EP in 2011, Josh Legg, known by his stage name Goldroom, emerged soon after the dissolution of Legg’s former band NightWaves. The name originated from a dive bar in Echo Park that Legg would frequent.  Though Goldroom was born from his then-burgeoning infatuation with the electronic world, the project drew closely from Legg’s near-lifelong experience in making music. Raised in Wellesley, Massachusetts, he learned to play cello and guitar as a child and soon started writing his own songs and self-recording on a four-track. At age 15 he had a major musical awakening while teaching sailing on Cape Cod, where a group of college kids turned him on to the ’60s/’70s rock and folk artists who would eventually guide his own songwriting. After heading off to study at the University of Southern California, Legg discovered Air, Daft Punk, and other electronic artists. He then began his journey toward crafting boldly inventive electronic music with a classic pop songwriting structure at its core.

On his 2016 full-length debut West of the West, Goldroom bends the boundaries of electronic music to build a sleekly composed but soulful update of the quintessential California sound.
