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 single and features have amassed over 6,500,000+ streams and secured 90 editorial playlists, including six playlist covers.

March 2023 saw Fang release his debut mixtape, SMOOVE KILLA. 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 100,000 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; toured nationwide with Australian bands Sticky Fingers and The Terrys; showcased at BIGSOUND and supported UK Grime legend Novelist and Jamaican dancehall icon Sister Nancy. In 2023, he played Field Day, invited to showcase at SXSW in the US in March, and supported international superstar Lil Nas X and Genesis Owusu. As well soon-to-be-announced festival performances locked in, 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.
