“David Goldman has a gift for channeling his love of the whole wide world of music into well-crafted songs, and he has the voice to do those songs justice.” — John Platt, WFUV 90.7FM
"Going To America" has won the Gold Prize in the Folk-Rock category of the 32nd Annual Mid-Atlantic Songwriters Contest of the Songwriters' Association of Washington, D.C. I wrote this song because I wanted to express a positive spirit in the face of all the challenges that America faces today. We are all going to America, trying to find America. We can only get there together, all for one, one for all and all for all.

The word eclectic does not begin to describe the influences that make up David Goldman’s music. If his mixed ethnic background of Jewish, Italian and Albanian wasn’t varied enough, he grew up listening to classical, opera, international and American folk music, blues and rock and roll. He then studied abroad in college for four years in India, Mexico, and Japan, and has traveled to France, Italy, England, Spain, Portugal and Turkey.
