Alex Golding

Lead Vocals, Guitar

Alex learned classical music as a kid, but when he heard the Beatles aged 11, everything changed. He quit the choir and orchestra, and so did begin a passion for songwriting, production, melody, guitar, rock and pop that has developed ever since. Influenced by Hendrix, Floyd, Zeppelin, Rolling Stones, Elvis, Lennon, Blues guitar legends and the glam era, James Brown, Marvin Gaye, Prince and many more, his unique style of craftsmanship is expressed in rich analogue tones and hooky melodies that make the GOLDTRIPPER experience, golden.

Will Spurling

Drums, Vocals

Will Spurling has been a drummer at heart since birth.  His parents heard him beatboxing in the back of their Volkswagon Polo before he could talk.  At age 5 his Dad built his first drum kit from old pots and pans and then at age 8, he got his first real drum kit and began having lessons!

Since that time Will has gigged continuously in and around London for various bands and done session work for singer songwriters.  Notable achievements have included: performing sexual acts on his drums on stage, touring the UK for 5 weeks and reaching no. 3 in the UK iTunes Prog Rock chart with his band Mandala.
