Our next Artist Of The Week is the stunning husband and wife folk duo, The Goudies aka Sam and Beth Goudie. As singers and songwriters they explore the relationship of love, faith, and the spaces in between — always ending in hope.
Listen to their latest EP, “When This Is Over” here:
At the start of 2021, whilst the UK was locked down, they started a weekly live stream (Tiny Show Tuesday) for their friends from their home, playing new songs and country covers — and finally decided to bring their solo projects together to form The Goudies.
Whilst The Goudies is a new project, Sam & Beth have both been well received as solo musicians. Individually they have both been featured as BBC Wales Artist of the week (Sam as Elephant & Soldier) and been played on BBC Introducing, BBC 6 Music, and local stations. They have also supported acclaimed artists such as Amy Wadge, Alfie Boe, and Jesca Hoop.
Their debut EP, “When This is Over|, was released 22nd July (so, brand new!). Recorded with just a single microphone in a room, the songs are an honest reflection on a time when everything was stripped away and we found out the things that matter.
Watch their music video for the lead single here:
What an absolute gem of a tune! Solid songwriting about what really matters. Their harmonies are some of the tightest and best suited voices we’ve heard in a long time. The fact that they can keep you engaged and captivated through the whole song with only two acoustic guitars and their voices, is a true testament to a well written song by talented musicians. We can’t wait to hear more from this duo, and will be following their journey, for sure.
