Only few musicians are quite as rounded off as Dave Goodman. This Canadian is a gifted artist who, like no other, can perform virtuosically on acoustic as well as electric instruments. He is also a top-drawer international singer and songwriter.
After playing mostly acoustic for many years, he has now opened a new chapter with his album “Cut To The Chase”: Eleven original songs reveal him to be a master creator somewhere between pop and blues, who convinces the listener with intense musical brush strokes and unbelievably opulent guitar work. Dave accompanies and plays solo on all sorts of string instruments, painting vivid and atmospheric landscapes notably with the slide guitar, resonator and Weissenborn lap steel guitar. And he does all the lead and backing vocals himself. In short: It’s a job one would need several musicians for otherwise. Tough achieving his level of quality would be difficult even then. If you don’t shy away from comparisons, then categorizing Dave’s new CD would be tantamount to a meeting of musical VIPs like Keb’ Mo and Robben Ford. When the two are having a good day. Dave Goodman’s “Cut To The Chase” is a must CD for all music fans who hanker for good songs with an elegant, blues-steeped guitar sound.
