Initially from Houston, Gold Beach is Tony Daugherty and Michael Winningham. After a move to Austin, the two formed the band, which eventually came to include musical contributions from Jeremy Gomez (x-Mineral, the Glass Family), Carlos Orozco (x-Western Keys, Black Drum Set), Nicole Kern (x-Balmorhea), Evan Jacobs (Tacks! the Boy Disaster, Polyphonic Spree), Andy Sharp (Girling) and Henna Chou (x-My Education).

Gold Beach have shared the stage with Memoryhouse, Talkdemonic, Wooden Birds, Balmorhea, and completed a Daytrotter session that went live at the end of last year. The band plans to work with John Congleton (St. Vincent, the Walkmen, Wye Oak) on the next record.
