About Steve Godsell
Minehead, United Kingdom
I've pretty much left my songs to speak 4 themselves but i started writing songs when i was about 14. Played student clubs, pubs, clubs, church halls, folk clubs wherever in London when at uni. I sort of got away from performing my music and got married and raised a family but my guitar nagged at me to pick it up again ... so i did (actually, i never stopped writing during those years ... you just don't!) I've been lucky to live a full and rewarding life and was brought up in Ireland, grown in the UK, adopted by Australia and i am a friend of Nashville! I grew up listening to the Beatles and learned from them that a great tune is a great tune is a great tune ... get it down and play it. More sophisticated harmonies and arrangements can come later. Listened heaps to the legendary James Taylor and Neil Young over the years ... and friends say that their influences are still in my songs today. Totally happy with that!! Other major influences are the Corrs who i love 4 so many reasons and the greater Corrs family which includes so many of the most wonderful people! The Music-Circle in Nashville i luckily count as my friends and again they are super musicians and super people. Particularly my friend Lainey Edwards who is darling! Country music has so many great tunes and singers ... their vocals are right amongst the best out there! 'Bond' rock out 2 btw! ( UK/Aussie awesomeness) Gay-yee, Eos, Elspeth and Tania. There are so many musicians that i admire and for sure i count my friends in the forefront of that feeling ... i think that really i love genuine musicians who love their music and who produce their OWN music, whatever their style or genre may be.
