BIOGRAPHY

New York based composer/guitarist Jim Goodin produces acoustic guitar instrumental music of much color and texture and emotion. Set on his journey some 25 years ago when Goodin heard Michael Hedges, he [Goodin] never looked back as he began honing his craft and voice. Over the years he has carved a sound that one critic said, "He [Jim Goodin] is playing out of so many sources he sounds exactly like himself!". Goodin is a Mel Bay author.
