THE GOUDIES (GOW-dees) are husband and wife folk-country duo — Sam & Beth Goudie. Their close harmonies and honest sound have drawn comparison with Americana artists such as The Civil Wars and Gillian Welch & David Rawlings. As singers and songwriters they explore the relationship of love, faith, and the spaces in between — always ending in hope.
Their debut EP, When This is Over, was released in July 2021. Recorded with just a single microphone in a room, the songs are an honest reflection on a time when everything was stripped away and we found out the things that matter.
The Goudies have been featured on BBC Introducing and Absolute Music Country as well as winning the Amazing Radio weekly audition and being selected as Richer Unsigned Artist of the Week.
At the start of 2021, whilst the UK was locked down, they started a weekly live stream (Tiny Show Tuesday) for their friends from their home, playing new songs and country covers — and finally decided to bring their solo projects together to form The Goudies.
After seven years away, 2022 will see The Goudies making home and reconnecting with their roots in the South Wales music scene - starting with the February release of their version of It's Not Unusual (recorded as part of the When This Is Over sessions).
