'Black Is Golden', the first full length LP from Wyn Starks, isn't just the name of a record - it's his truth as a black man living in modern America. "I decided to call the album 'Black Is Golden' because throughout history black and brown people have gone through so much injustice in this country and yet contributed so much to society. I think it's important that we celebrate each other and all our differences." But the songs aren't all centered on social justice - the album features upbeat tracks like "Circles" and "Dancing My Way" which showcase Starks' vocal range and sunny disposition; juxtaposed with "At The End of the River", a deeply emotional track about the tragic loss of Wyn's twin brother. Starks' feels his journey to self-love is captured in this body of work. He shares, "I'm learning how to celebrate these accomplishments in my life and to love myself, flaws and all.
