About Minor Gold

Minor Gold are the new Americana/Folk duo featuring ARIA nominated, award-winning songwriters Tracy McNeil & Dan Parsons. Living in a van whilst touring as solo artists in early 2020, Parsons and McNeil hightailed it out of Melbourne Victoria up to sunny Queensland, narrowly avoiding the winter as the first lockdown occurred. Holed up in the land of palm trees and perfect weather, the duo subsequently wrote their debut album ‘Minor Gold’ – released August 11, 2023.

Weaving masterful harmonies around stripped-back, organic arrangements that draw on the breezy sounds of 70’s west-coast pop, the daydream haze of 60’s folk to the ballad-power and polaroid romance of the 80’s, Minor Gold display a spellbinding musical connection throughout this superb collection of songs.

“The pairs real superpower is their melodic vocal interplay and sixth-sense harmonies…Imagine standing at a crossroads, halfway between Laurel Canyon and a sandy palm tree cove. These are the intoxicating sounds you might hear drifting on that summer breeze.” - Chris Familton Rhythms Magazine

In under a year, Minor Gold have released three singles, each added to national high rotation on Double J. In February 2023, the duo charmed audiences at Folk Alliance International in Kansas City, and have just completed a 26+ date North American Tour with an Official Showcase at the AmericanaFest in Nashville and additional shows supporting The Teskey Brothers in major venues in the U.S. & Canada.

To celebrate the release of their debut album in Australia, the pair will embark on a national tour from October-December. Not to be missed.
