Ever since he found a battered old acoustic guitar washed up on a riverbank when he was just a teen, Gozer Goodspeed has been addicted to making music. Playing his potent fusion of deeply original blues-folk music - which also manages to seamlessly blend in elements of rock, indie and funk - Goodspeed is a songwriting force to be reckoned with, doing exactly what comes most naturally.
A permanent fixture on the Westcountry live scene in the UK, Gozer has developed an ever-growing reputation for his energetic, foot-stomping solo live shows, which utilise live-looping to make maximum use of his unique guitar skills. Gozer is never happier than when he’s onstage, and he has quickly become a regular feature on the regional festival circuit.
An artist on the rise, Gozer's recorded music has been recognised and embraced locally by the likes of BBC Introducing in Devon and Cornwall – for whom he has played numerous live sessions – and his songs have featured nationally on a slew of Folk, Roots and Blues radio shows, including, amongst many others, FATEA’s flagship programme ‘Along the Tracks’. Internationally Gozer has been heavily supported by tastemakers such as Artie Martello, Jon Colchord and Jonathan L (plus many many others) and his music has been heard across the world.
Following on from 2016's 'Rattlebone Colour EP', 2017’s 'The Barrel Headlong into the Night EP' and 2018's EP ‘Impossible to Pick Up’ Gozer has recorded his first album, now released across all good digital stores and on all good streaming platforms. Read all about 'Running with the Outliers' here.
Some very exciting live shows are now being lined up with his full touring band, Gozer Goodspeed & The Neon Gamblers, which are set to take the Gozer live experience to the next level! See the GIG DIARY section of this website for information about where next to catch him and the new band live!
