Award winning folk artist with a flair for story songs.
Originally from South Wales and now based in Hampshire, Amy Goddard is a folk artist with a flair for story songs. 2018 will see her release an EP of mining songs on the back of winning FATEA track of the year 2016 for ‘Remembering Aberfan’. Amy’s set will draw from this new release and also from her two previous studio albums. Amy stands out as an artist across disciplines, designing her own album covers and even performing on a hand-crafted guitar she built herself. Her vocals have been likened to Sandy Denny and Joni Mitchell for their clear, pure and almost fragile sound. Described by Folk Radio UK as "the rarest of singer/songwriters" Amy's songs cover personal matters, history and legend and also current social comment. Amy has loved folk and acoustic music since her childhood when she discovered the music of Simon and Garfunkel. She loves to combine her creative skills in building guitars, writing and recording her songs and creating a complete work of art in the form of an album.
