about

“Livin on Gold Street’ came to me while I was driving home to Collingwood. I hit record on my phone and minutes later I arrived home and picked up my guitar and it was all there. The song is a celebration of new love and the new life that surrounds it. The verses reflect some of the harder times I had emerged from. Thematically it was so on-point for us that it just felt like a song I had to write.”
Ben Mastwyk

lyrics

Yeah I’m livin’ on Gold Street
Where everything shines
And I’m yours and your mine
And we’re dancin’ through time
And it feels like we’re flyin’

I spent… spent some years
Walking around in the dust
Took a trip outta town
Followed the light into dark
Wipped the dirt from my eyes
Found my way back into luck
Took a chance on a star
An now look at where I ended up

Now I’m livin’ on Gold Street
Where everything shines
And I’m yours and your mine
We’re dancin’ through time
And it feels like we’re flyin

Yeah I’m livin’ on Gold Street
And it’s not hard to find
A moment in time
That shines like a diamond
From your lovin’ eyes
Where your beauty just blinds
Like the dazzling lights
Cos this room is on fire

I thought… thought that I
Was riding so high in this life
Took a love that I found
Turned that love into a wife
Told my friends in the end
They’d all came along for the ride
But the house that I found
It turned out to be fool’s paradise

And now I’m livin’ on Gold Street
Where everything shines
I’m yours and your mine
We’re dancin’ through time
And it feels like we’re flyin

Yeah I’m livin’ on Gold Street
And it’s not hard to find
A moment in time
That shines like a diamond
From your lovin’ eyes

Where your beauty just blinds
Like the dazzling lights
Cos this room is on fire
Yeah your beauty just blinds
Like the dazzling lights
Cos this room is on fire

about

Ben Mastwyk Melbourne, Australia

"The songs are rich with meaning and truth…real and raw, just as true country music should be”.
Samuel J. Fell. Rhythms Magazine

Mastwyk plunges headlong into Seventies country-soul glam with lashings of cosmic American pedal steel and psych-guitar glitz.
Country Update

“Mastwyk conjures up the spirits of Conway Twitty and George Jones through well told stories of the heart.”
