What We All Know
What we all know is a musical landscape of rugged terrain- it's intrepid instrumentation compel the listener's attention to detail. In all, the diversity of this acoustic-driven compilation of varied genres will surprise the listener and challenge the mind. A traveler himself, Goodell invites his audience to shadow his expeditions lyrically and instrumentally. Diana de las piedras spotlights an intimate encounter with aching poverty in Central America, and the echo of a Bolivian charango lingers in Near Mine. In an unexpected shift of tone and mood, Pride is searing honesty meets masterful melody and rich lyricism in a plea for salvation from the treachery of the human heart. I want to believe is another jolt- at once playful and profound. The title track of this album seeks the answer to the deepest question; where does the collective human conscience stem from -- one that shows us what we all know? And could it be that conscience has a name? The album is sure to please through it's sincerity, variety and appealing musical flavor.
