Golden Shoulders is a band from Nevada City, California. Formed in 2001 by songwriter Adam Kline, the group operates with a rotating lineup and has featured significant contributions from such notables as Joanna Newsom, who sang and played piano on the first Golden Shoulders album, "Let My Burden Be", before going on to international acclaim; Kyle Field (Little Wings), Todd Roper and Greg Brown (Cake, Deathray), Rich Good (the Pleased), Dan Elkan (Pocket for Corduroy, Hella), Josh Klinghoffer (John Frusciante, Vincent Gallo, Beck, PJ Harvey), Rusty Miller (Jackpot), Rob Kieswetter (Bobby Birdman), Neal Morgan, and more. A complete list of contributors can be found [ here] .

Golden Shoulders has released two albums, "Let My Burden Be" (2002) and "Friendship is Deep" (2004), and one EP, "Kin" (2006). [] All three releases were recorded at Brighton Sound Studio in Sacramento, California. Thus far, all officially released Golden Shoulders songs have been written by Kline and arranged by the musicians on the recordings. Live arrangements differ from the recorded versions based on the whims of the performers. Golden Shoulders' first album, "Let My Burden Be", peaked at #68 on the CMJ chart, which measures college radio plays in the United States. [] The April 2005 issue of MOJO magazine gave the Golden Shoulders' second album, "Friendship is Deep", a review of four out of five stars. [] The Golden Shoulders have also had many songs featured on the episodic video blog, Lonelygirl15. []

The band has toured the United States several times, including 2004's Speed of Sound Tour and 2006's Annyong Tour. The shows performed on these tours were performed without electricity, meaning no microphones or amplifiers were used. []
