Basic Folk 58 – Dave Godowsky

Powered by RedCircle

Business or performance? According to Dave Godowsky, you don’t have to choose, guys. As a professional music fan for nearly 3 decades, Dave has been an artist manager, A&R rep and several other kinds of music industry types. All the while, he’s weaved in and out the singer/songwriter/performer, for which he has a great talent for. Dave’s genuine good hearted nature has gotten him the trust, talent and time of many impressive well known musicians like Bon Iver, Gene Ween (of Ween), Adam Duritz and Lianne La Havas. He’s also well connected to many smaller music communities. One of those communities was essential to his songwriting in the last ten or so years: The Subrosa Songwriting Retreat that takes place on Three Mile Island in Lake Winnipesaukee, New Hampshire. Dave talks about how this retreat has allowed him to piece together enough songs for his last few album.
His newest album, Cuts (out Feb 28), is this beautiful calming album dotted with lovely harp and woodwinds. During production, he was concentrating on keeping the band zen and working to create a” musical Xanax.” He said” “if people were having a panic attack, they could put this on and it would calm them.” It’s a great album and hope you go listen to it when it’s out on Feb 28!
