Kent Goolsby & The Gold Standard – No Substitute For Handsome


No Substitute For Handsome is the debut long-player from Nashville based singer-songwriter Kent Goolsby and his band The Gold Standard, the ex-frontman of roots rockers the The Only Sons – who released three fine albums before splitting a couple of years back.

This album see a stylistic shift for Kent as he adopts a contemporary country-blues mantle for this fine collection of original songs with a sound that sits comfortably side-by-side with Americana artists including Justin Townes Earle and Joe Pug; the album was recorded and produced by Glossary frontman Joey Kneiser who also helped out with vocals, drums and percussion on the album , the studio line-up including Kent’s wife Anna on backing vocals,  Steve Daly (Guitar & Mandolin), Dan Eubanks (Upright Bass), Roy Agee (Trombone) and Chris Housman (Fiddle).

The album will be a self-release and available from early next month, though you can pre-order direct from the man himself now.
