Country of Origin: New Zealand
Goldenhorse are a pop/folk band from New Zealand. The group consists of Kirsten Morelle (vocals), Geoff Maddock (guitar/vocals), Ben King (guitar/vocals), and Vincent Hine (bass).
Goldenhorse's debut album 'Riverhead' was released in October 2002, to a small fanfare. But over the next 18 months various singles from the album started to have an impact on the radio. The band played live throughout New Zealand continuously and sales of the record climbed slowly then steadily and in August 2004 the album reached no.1 on the national charts. One song in particular, 'Maybe Tomorrow', written by Geoff Maddock achieved great commercial success, and in 2003 it was the most played local song on all New Zealand radio.
