A Note From Goldroom:
Hey everyone. Last weekend in Mexico, Mother Nature decided to reach out and pick me. The band and I were in Tulum to play Corona Sunsets and we were enjoying a spectacular afternoon swimming in the Caribbean Sea. I was doing what I love most, with my favorite people, in the perfect setting, when a freak wave picked me up and brought me down to earth on my head.
Without going into the insane details of what the next 12 hours held, I eventually discovered that I had broken my neck in two places. I am VERY lucky that my spinal cord was uninjured in the accident. I’m strong, have feeling in my limbs, and am looking at a really positive prognosis. I flew back to LA on Monday and the doctors are confident that I won’t be needing surgery. Rest (and studio time!) will get me back to new.
I wanted to let everyone know what happened, and to explain why we didn’t play last weekend. I’m really sorry we missed the festival but we will be making the show up as soon as we can.
Obviously this also raises the question of what this means for Goldroom this summer. My focus is getting healthy, but I’m very anxious to get back to playing shows and finishing up new music. Unfortunately we’re postponing my boat tour show in Vancouver on Saturday and rescheduling for September 3rd. Don’t worry, I will be back on the High Seas in no time. Nobody wants that more than me.
The irony of this situation is not lost on me. The ocean, my muse and my passion, giving me a hard reality check. It may be cliche but I can’t help but feel like this happened for a reason. I’ve been given a chance to grow and become a stronger person. A chance to make better art and help more people. As I lie here still picking Mexican sand from my hair my head spins thinking about what happened, what I’m up against, and how much worse it could have been. This situation just strengthens my resolve to do what I love. All I want is to be back on the ocean, back in the studio, and back on the stage. I’ll always be me.
