Time for a pop quiz: add up the following:

Performances in venues ranging from intimate songwriter rooms and jazz clubs to cathedrals and concert halls in Europe; writer of singing telegrams; critically acclaimed composer of film soundtracks; talent booker at a prestigious listening room; songwriter’s deal with a major publisher; and a voice that’s a throwback to another era.

What do you get? Barry Goold.

Raised in Montreal the son of a preacher, his talents led him through the Music Composition program at Concordia University on full scholarship. He graduated at the top of the class.

While in college, Barry recorded several songs under the guidance of Ben Kaye (now co-manager of Celine Dion), which were released in Canada.

He toured Europe as a member of a professional Baroque vocal ensemble, taught elementary school music and wrote singing telegrams, all while performing in jazz, folk and pop clubs. Daily Variety mentioned his score for the Canadian film “Eva: Guerillera� as one of the film’s highlights.

After winning a Green Card in the lottery, he was drawn to Nashville, where he first landed a job screening new talent and booking performers at the renowned performance club “The Bluebird Café�. Later, in addition to running a small music marketing company, he managed to secure a handshake deal with MCA Music Publishing. When that deal ended, he followed his childhood dream and moved to Los Angeles.

After working with music supervisors and writing songs for various feature films that rarely made a film’s final cut (including “Stuart Little 2�, “Undercover Brother�, “Dramarama� and “Desperate Housewives�), Barry decided to record a CD of songs he felt personally passionate about. That CD, “Knockin’ On Another Door�, was recorded in Nashville with A-list session musicians and award-winning producer Wayne Haun at the end of December. It is currently being mixed and mastered, and will be released independently in April 2008. As an openly gay singer and experienced songwriter, his new album offers songs with style, substance and themes that speak to every one.
