Though Gabe Goodman has only been putting out music for less than a year, he has had a long and winding career in the “entertainment business.” From appearing on Kids Say the Darndest Things at age 5 to touring with major label synth-popsters Magic Man, Goodman has now rejected the glitz and glamour of his past lives. With his 2018 EP Dismissing the Gardener, he showcased a unique sonic palette that is at once quirky, earnest and somber. He garnered praise from ThrdCoast, The Wild Honey Pie and, along with a support slot for Puma Blue’s sold-out NYC debut. He returns in 2019 with “Redacted,” a song that leans into his poppier impulses while lamenting the difficulties of being honest with loved ones.
