Popular Fiction spins out from its smooth black center in wide concentric circles, like rings in a tree. Listen close, and you'll hear all the people Will Marsh has ever been. A little kid, only twelve, thrilled beyond measure to be toying with a four-track and a six-string. A Dylan obsessive at seventeen, reeling from heartbreak and wanderlust, and daring, in the tradition of his idol, to put the feelings in song. Awaking too early in the morning after his birthday party, newly twenty-one, traipsing through a vast void of virgin snow with a guitar strapped firm to his back. Now twenty-five, Will is at last ready to introduce the world to Gold Connections - once a scrappy sophomore-year passion project; now, aided by seasoned hometown producer Daniel Goans, a high-fidelity font of expression for the many lives he's lived.
