More Than Myth
Goliath is the brain child of bass player Bob Amonett. This native Texan started playing bass at 14 and never looked back. By age 19, Bob had upgraded to six string bass and was attending the University of Miami's School of Jazz. Then, it was off to Dallas/Ft.Worth to study audio engineering. While there Bob took an interest in upright bass so he enrolled in TCU School of Classical Music. By late 1996, he had made it to Austin where he formed Dees' Nutz & Bolts. Upon the realization that the name was in poor taste he switched the name to Goliath to honor his dog. In 2000, Goliath had recorded it's 1st album 'Palming the Wickedtree.' After finishing the album, Bob went to the Bass Collective in Manhattan to study Afro-Cuban and Fusion music. When he returned, Bob was a new bass player. Confident and hungry. The perfect ingredients for an album. Now, at the turn of 2006, Goliath is proudly releasing it's second album 'More Than Myth.' This album has strong vocal melodies in songs like 'PieHole', 'The Compromise', and 'Just Isn't Intersted'; and powerfully orchestrated instrumntals like 'Not So 5 Alarm Chili', 'Atlanta Fire', and 'Carry on Men'.
