First Friday July 4 2008
The First Friday Art Walk is on July 4th.
We’re excited to have live music again this month, this time from Billy Goodman.
Billy Goodman was born and raised south of Poplar Bluff, Missouri. He has been playing for audiences since high school. Most recently, Billy has been playing small venues for audiences who crave a classic acoustic sound and appreciate his songwriting talent. Billy’s first passion is writing and singing but he also plays guitar. Most of his music is influenced by real life events or interesting narratives. Here is what Billy’s studio has said about him: “Citing influences such as Elvis, The Doors, Bruce Springsteen, and many others, Billy Goodman takes something from each of these artists to create something truly his own. His gritty, heartfelt vocals and lyrics combine to portray emotions and an outlook that listeners can relate to. This along with a sense of danger and an unwillingness to compromise or censor his writing is the classic recipe for rock ‘n’ roll attitude.” Billy likes playing for local audiences in southern Missouri and he is always looking to expand his own musical interests and entertain an audience.
