About the Artist
From his home and studio in rural Cornwall, Medwyn Goodall has devoted himself to reflecting the beauty and inspiration of nature through his music. He plays over a dozen instruments, although his main instrument is the guitar, with which he has evolved a unique style melodic, expressive and graceful a music that is both inspiring and calming. Born in the Yorkshire Dales in the village of Harrowgate he spent his childhood in the scenic splendor of the countryside; the Goodall family veterinarian was the best-selling author James Herriot. Raised with the sounds of the 60's, Med was particularly fond of the Beatles and the Beach Boys, claiming their melodies influenced him to get his first guitar; at the age of 11 Medwyn met English pop star Cliff Richard, who encouraged him in his choice of a musical career. He began composing music as soon as he had mastered a few chords on his guitar, playing in many different bands as a teenager. One of these groups, Trax, appeared on the television show Check It Out and made numerous radio appearences, including a guest spot on BBC Radio Leeds. Goodall turned out to be a natural musician, able to pick up any instrument and play it. His range is amazing, including double bass, mandolin, piano, drums, harp, percussion, flute, glockenspiel, panpipes, vibraphone, and synthesizers of all types. He has designed and built his own recording studio, stocking it with many varities of sampler (which Medwyn claims as his favorite instrument, as it will perform any musical sound in the world), synthesizers, guitars and a wealth of acoustic instruments.
Medwyn Goodall uses traditional instruments and rhythms to celebrate the power of the Feminine. Through this balance, we can achieve a greater harmony with the expansive, nurturing side of ourselves. A lively, authentic performance.
