Juno-winning guitarist, vocalist and composer Jocelyn Gould is getting ready to release her second album Golden Hour.

The new recording marks the Manitoba-born, Toronto-based musician’s followup to her breakout debut album in 2020.

Golden Hour features six original compositions and four songs from the Great American Songbook. Gould’s ensemble features bassist Rodney Whitaker, drummer Quincy Davis and pianist Will Bonness, mirroring the classic lineups of guitar quartet albums that have inspired her.

Gould is hitting the road this summer in support of the record, including a performance as part of the TD Toronto Jazz Festival.

Before then, she joined us to talk about Golden Hour, the early days of her career in New York, and her work as an educator.
