Playing his potent fusion of deeply original blues-folk music - which also manages to seamlessly blend in elements of rock, indie and funk - Gozer Goodspeed is a songwriting force to be reckoned with.
A permanent fixture on the Westcountry live scene in the UK, Gozer has developed an ever-growing reputation for his energetic, foot-stomping live shows, which utilise live-looping to make maximum use of his unique guitar skills. Averaging between 60 and 75 gigs a year, 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 and Roots 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, and his music has therefore 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, set for release across all good digital stores and on all good streaming platforms on November 15th 2019. 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!
"A wonderful story teller, a riotous rabble-rouser and an excellent performer ...
Fans young and old are captivated by Goodspeed’s raw energy and infectious melodies"
