An honest lyric, a mighty harpoon straight from the heart, Golden’s debut full-length, A Dead Name That Learned How To Live weaves poems, family photographs, and self-portraits to share a journey of survival and living in the American south. Exploring themes of loss and legacy, nation and love language, forgiveness and fortitude, Blackness and being, Golden continually asks–What shifts within and around us when we choose to name ourselves and our kin here–our tragedy and triumphs, our human failures and feelings, our desires to be free? Releasing on their parent’s 30th wedding anniversary (August 29th, 2022) as a dedicated love letter and living archive, this debut is an awe and ode towards southern Virginia & Eastern Shore Maryland, Black family pasts, presents, and futures, to Black queer beginnings and belongings outside and within the family home.
