Gold Box Kingdom is the brainchild of bassist Corey Wentworth and Amy Bruckmeier. Wentworth has relocated to New Hampshire, so the new GBK recorcd, FLOWERS, out now on Strawberry Canyon Records/Citrus to Citrus, features singer/songwriter/guitarist Amy Bruckmeier and collaborator Justus Dobrin. Working with producer Jim Greer, Bruckmeier and Dobrin have created a record that is confident and provocative, bittersweet and brooding; it is part adult alternative rock/pop, part trip hop with unforgettable hooks. This time around Bruckmeier sings about brainwashing machines, gambling with fate, and global warming; she sings about escapism and realism. On half of the album, they recorded with a live band at Studio C/Hyde Street Studios in San Francisco, while the other songs are a mixture of studio science and live instruments, recorded at Bowl Noodle North, SF. Guest musicians include Jude Gold (guitar), Dave Tweedie (live drums and percussion), Jim Greer (bass, all production and mastering) and Steve Bradley (trumpet). A singer, songwriter and guitarist, Amy Bruckmeier is from Berkeley, CA. She has released three full length CDs to date on her label, Strawberry Canyon Records: Gold Box Kingdom FLOWERS (2008), Gold Box Kingdom's debut album HEAVY & LIGHT (2003), and a record under her own name, Amy B., A FAN OF TANGERINE (1998).
