Gray Days and Gold is a monthly streaming music show that shines a light on some of the most interesting artists you’re not hearing on the radio. There’s a focus on adventurous but timeless songwriting, often with a wistful hue—our motto is “Maximum melody, moderate melancholy”—and sonic evocation of the passing seasons. Music that’s lovely and comforting, but never aural wallpaper.
