Peter is playing a handful of shows in Germany this December. He also just released a vocal experiment R&B influenced album called These Walls of Mine. He also has two new tracks on some really nice comps.
It started out as a way of simply getting together. Old college friends, Carlos Forster and Matt Ward began looking for opportunities to connect on weekends. Scattered over several years going all the way back to 2003, Forster spent a number of weekends in the Pacific Northwest with Ward, hiking and swimming in destinations like The Columbia Gorge and Sandy River, between leisurely recording Forster’s songs.

Listening to Goodwin’s “Hymns,” one can almost hear Alaska’s ferocious alpine peaks, rugged with such exquisite allure, upon which he spent many days of his youth.” –The Vanguard
“Although the focus is on Goodwin’s lightly picked guitar and Drake-like voice, contributions from singers Alela Diane and Laura Gibson lend to its gorgeously haunted sound.” – Willamette Week
“Goodwin set out to record this album with Sean Ogilvie, of the Portland band Musée Méchanique, four years ago. “But,” says Goodwin, “a bunch of life happened.” Read about Kele’s life and music in this Oregonian article
