About the Event
After releasing three well-received acoustic EPs in as many years, and after playing hundreds of live dates at all kinds of venues across the South West of the UK, Gozer Goodspeed's debut album Running with the Outliers is finally here.
Working with prodigiously talented producer Chris Love at the newly-built Whistlewood Studios in Plymouth, Gozer has, for the first time in his career, recruited a full band of talented musicians to record with in the studio, and kept the recording sessions as live and spontaneous as possible. The result is a modern, vibrant indie folk rock album teeming with different moods, different vibes, and unexpected left turns, and packed full of Goodspeed's trademark multi-layered, emotive, often wryly playful lyrics.
Running with the Outliers will make you redefine what you think you know about Gozer Goodspeed's music.
PRAISE FOR THE ALBUM 'RUNNING WITH THE OUTLIERS':
"...a damned fine album... Delightfully rough around the edges... surf in the guitar stylings and punk in the delivery... filled to the brim" - Neil King, FATEA
"... an album of gravel-soaked grace... an urgency that is electrifying and a passion that is undeniable ... Running with the Outliers is without doubt a savagely good listen" - Kevin Burke, The Big Takeover
“The evolution of Gozer Goodspeed has been a privilege to witness…we are instantly transported into Goodspeed’s world of deep grooves, hooky melodies and the kind of songwriting that really belongs on a 7th or 8th album, not a debut” - Roland Monger, Listen with Monger
“Gozer Goodspeed has now entered the big leagues. Running with the Outliers is an album that demands you listen to it, that cannot be categorised… It has rock edges, dare I say pop moments, it’s arena large in effort and scope but intimate club in its emotional hit… There is a real depth and gravitas to the songs and messages contained within this latest offering” - Steve Taylor-Bryant, AlbieMedia.com
