The Art Of The Singer Songwriter Biography

Bios are always a bugger! The songs on the music page www.algoodwin.com are my biography, or at least my musical biography. As I say on the home page I have no PR team it's just me. I can't do and in fact refuse to do the bullshit 3rd person wafflings of a ghost publicist which would be me. I'm a songwriter enjoying the new music industry working hard to get my just dues from my music. I played in bands when I was younger and came pretty close to "making it" That just seemed to crumble, still don't know why to this day but hey today is now and I'm loving making music again with full control. I make mistakes on the business side of things as I try to keep up with a very healthy and exciting new music industry. I'd love help with this but they'd have to be trustworthy and have the songs and their sole at heart. Just released my second record and I've learnt so much since my first Album "Celebrate." The new EP "The Stone That Brought The Girl" was intended to be another CD album but time/work and family (always seem to have a baby on the way when ready to release a record) put some pressure on me to release lesser amounts of content. I'm happy with the results though and know now to continue with an end goal but just get there in short steps as opposed to impossible giant leaps, maybe madness but I put it down to life. A fan base is growing and I'm being heard, the EP is much more satisfying than my first album. I self produced this one and loved the process and am indebted to the friends, family and musicians that helped out. All done in my home studio, I don't have the money for London studio rates and this way I have the time and control the songs merit. It's all about the music. More time would be success to me not millions, fame and debauched parties (or maybe a little bit though) but life is good and my two children are my inspiration. Friends and fans make it all worthwhile and of course a new song is the gift, the mysterious powerful creation. I mean when a song is close to completion and I can say "that did not exist five minutes ago" or in my case 3 and a half minutes ago. That is wonderful and I do this because I can and I'll continue to do so. So en bref that's me Al Goodwin. "To Be Continued"
