Timing couldn't have been better for multi-instrumentalist sensation Chris Flaskas as he nears the summit for his down under tour launching his new hit single "When The Gold Is Gone" this March 2016. Recently winning "The Akademia Music Award for Best Alternative Rock/ Folk Song for the December 2015 Akademia Music Awards" and also capturing the attention of Triple J Presenter "Sarah Howells" as she spun the new hit single on her Iconic program "Roots n All" makes for a powerful start to 2016 with the promise of many exciting events to come.
The coming forth and release of “When The Gold Is Gone” has been a powerful vision of Chris's for some time now. Chris believes at such times in this world where we as a race are breaking the moulds of our own conceptual conditioning and control "when the gold is gone" reminds us that beyond the gold and material possessions lies the truth and heart of our existence being relationships and the love we share.
Featuring a grand band style production captured at Pix Records in the heart of the Sunshine Coast hinterlands. Chris's ability to weave catchy and soulful lyrics with a deep seated spiritual meaning has been one of his greatest gifts. One could say that the journey through "When The Gold Is Gone" is a powerful experience of self realisation true indie rock at its "Best" with a splash of tribal spirit.
