Biography

English piano playing singer-songwriter Jeremy Goddard specializes in edgy brit-soul-funk-pop. He has been living in the East Village for nearly 3 years performing all over New York City including:

* Sold out show in the Knitting Factory's Tap Bar.

* Downtown Wednesday night East Village residency at the beautiful, cozy and chic jazz joint Rue-B, between 11th & 12th on Ave.B. In the past 18 months the ZAGAT rating for the bar has risen from a 21 to 27 making it the '#1 bar in the East Village', especially in the ambience and entertainment category. The crowd that come in every Wednesday has been building steadily and have always come back for more.

* Fronted bands for New York's biggest function agency HANK LANE as a singer performing in the grand ballrooms of venues such as The Waldorf-Astoria, The New York Plaza, The Rainbow Room at The Rockefeller Centre, 40 Wall Street and the numerous Cipriani halls.

* Numerous showcases of original songs @ The Sugar Bar, Uptown on 72nd Street, for legends Nik Ashford & Valerie Simpson. Regular fixture at their Thursday R&B open mic night recently featured in Billboard magazine as a place to see new songwriting talent.

In the United Kingdom he has run a 6 to 10 piece band called 'GODDARD', which is a groove based vehicle for his original material, for over 5 years and in that time they played well over 400 shows including:

* Five-star-rated (*****) headline shows at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, the world's largest performing arts festival, in August of both 2003 and 2005 at the Underbelly.

"The Underbelly is one of the festival's funkiest venues..." (The Daily Star)

* Murrayfield Stadium to help celebrate the Queen's Golden Jubilee in 2002 in front of 36,000 people.

Now starting a new chapter in the story and that began with the inception of a new band for touring work in the U.S. and the imminent release of a debut album in the fall.

The versatility of the act, and material, means that they are just as comfortable playing a full on rocking dance set or a stripped back, intimate acoustic performance.

Availiable for both solo and full-band shows.

Perfect for any venue.
