My first EP entitled Mike Goodwin, features 4 tracks. They were produced by Noah Shilkin and recorded at Sundown Studios Perth and MDG Audio, Margaret River. All Tracks were mixed at Lolly Box Music.
Nominated WAMSOTY 2019 Country Song of the Year.
Finalist Boyup Brook Country Music Awards 2020 in the Best Male, Best EP and Best Independent Songwriter categories. Eventually winning the Award for Best Independent Songwriter . A very proud moment.
My second EP entitled Locked Down feature 4 new tracks. One of the tracks "I Just Haven't Been Myself" features Marnie Fulton on vocals. Marnie came in to record the backing vocals on the tracks and when we heard her singing to I Just Haven't Been Myself we realised she just had to take the lead. She brought a unique sound to the track and as such is a co - author.
I was also so happy to work with good friend Troy Brenningmeyer once more . He lends his beautiful Pedal Steel to All The Things That Make You Cry. Roger Renolds on Drums and Maestro Kevin McDonald on double bass and guitar helped lay down the beds and once again the Master mixer Noah Shilkin wrestled it all together.
In 2020, we were once again finalists in the WAMSOTY Country song of the year, for the song As If You Were There.
In 2022 we were also finalists in the Best Male and Best Video category for our Sugarcane paper cut-out stop motion animation video clip. The latter we were lucky enough to win with. Check it out on Youtube
I have two new singles coming out very soon so stay tuned. One is a track I wrote for my Mum while she was in palliative care. I recorded it with the legendary James Newhouse at Lambchop Studios. It's a very personal song and not one I initially set out to release. I've since decided it's a tribute to my Mum and you know what? She would love it. So that one will be out very soon.
The other is a fun track about driving long distances to see the one you love after a long week at work (and quite possibly a reminder to be careful out there on those country roads). Also recorded with James, I loved making this one. I even got James to sing some killer harmonies.
In 2023, with a new band line up that's committed to building a future together, I'm excited for what's up around the bend. Here's to a big future together.
I do hope you enjoy my music and hope you will add me to your playlists, "like me", "friend me" and all of that, but most of all if you see me at a gig. Come and say hi!
Much Love, Mike
