“Heart Of Gold UK started at home in 2014 as an outlet for me to be able to sing about my experiences with people and places, how they’ve made me feel and how they’ve shaped me as a person today,” notes McGough. “To say someone has a “heart of gold” was to basically say ‘I know that no matter what, they still meant well’ or ‘they still have a heart of gold’,” he adds. “It was something I was told and taught at a very young age. It changed my outlook and taught me how to see that people will do things very differently to each other in life, so not to be so quick to judge as I am sure that they mean well.”
