Posted: January 15, 2009 in Religious, Rock/Alternative


Above the Golden State is a Christian rock band from Portland, Oregon. The album Above the Golden State was released on July 22, 2008, which is also the bands first single.  Lead singer Michael Watson said “we’re doing our best not to call it surf-rock—basically, it’s that with a touch of the rainy northwest.”

Some of Above the Golden State’s musical influences include, Weezer, Frenzy, Delerious?, The Beetles and Duke Ellington. The band consists of Michael Watson for lead vocals and guitar, Tim Aylward on keyboards, and Brook Mosser on drums. This group could be grouped with the bands The Afters, Starfield, Tenth Avenue North, Rush of Fools, Ten Shekel Shirt, and a softer side of Audio Adrenaline because of their sounds.
