Gold Fang

Hailing from Sydney, Trinidadian born Gold Fang moves effortlessly between Dancehall, Reggae, Hip-Hop, R&B and Soul. Flying the flag for Caribbean music in Australia, Gold Fang's magnetism leaves a mark. His vocabulary and his unmistakable voice alone propels Gold Fang far in front of the local space, most notably heralded by triple j (Australia’s national youth broadcaster) as "versatile yet unmistakable, able to seamlessly imbue any genre that he touches with a sonic fingerprint that is as distinctive as it is powerful. It is his undeniable presence and charisma that has caused Gold Fang to be earmarked as one-to-watch."

Since signing to NLV Records late 2021, Gold Fang’s catalogue of singles and features have amassed over 6,500,000+ streams and secured 90 editorial playlists, including six playlist covers. triple j Unearthed placed him the 3rd most played on the station in 2022.

March 2023 saw Fang release his debut mixtape, SMOOVE KILLA, introducing the international music industry to Gold Fang’s world. With nods to his Caribbean culture and heritage pulled into every corner of his expansive musical palette, the 15 track project explores his identity, culture, talent and community and his two distinct sides - one more emotive and romantic, and the other more street ready and grungy. SMOOVE KILLA generated 85,000 Spotify streams within the first week of its release and was named FBi Radio’s ‘Album of the Week.’

Gold Fang upholds his reputation as a live performer who has an unrivalled ability to command an audience. In 2022, he sold out his debut headline show in Sydney; travelled the country on nationwide tours with Australian bands Sticky Fingers and The Terrys; showcased at Australian music conference BIGSOUND and was chosen for notable international support slots with UK Grime legend Novelist and Jamaican dancehall icon Sister Nancy.  In 2023, he was awarded his debut festival performance at Field Day, invited to showcase at SXSW in the US in March, and selected to support international superstar Lil Nas X in Sydney and Genesis Owusu in Brisbane. As well as a run of notable support slots in the bag already and soon-to-be-announced festival performances, including Splendour In The Grass, Vivid and Promiseland, Gold Fang has also landed multiple brand partnerships and sync placements with Adidas, McDonalds, JD Sports and Champion.

Gold Fang is motivated to put his country on the map, whilst paving the way for a new generation of young, Black and powerful Australian artists. There is truly only one Gold Fang, and now he is ready to share it with the world.
