Bio

GOODING has placed songs in and/or scored more than 100 films/tv shows and commercials. He is also the guitarist/vocalist for the rock band "The Angel/Devil".

Born in Ann Arbor, MI, Gooding has lived in Wichita, KS, where he won his 7th grade talent show with drummer Jesse Rich, attended Film School at KU in Lawrence, KS where he met bassist Billy Driver, and has since spent stints writing and recording both alone and with his partners in crime in the mining country of north cali, the 5-lane sprawl of Los Angeles, CA and the front range of Fort Collins, CO.

"I saw KISS at age 4, heard Queen's Flash Gordon a few years later, and those two paths of rock n roll and movie soundtracks have pretty much consumed the rest of my days", he laughs. "I am very fortunate that my love of Rock n' Roll and Film has found a way to co-exist. Breaks from touring with the band allow me to record my experimental work- which has luckily found some homes in film and tv- and too much time down in the lab makes us want to get back out and stay focused on rock n’ roll".

After years of recording and producing dozens of other acts while running recording studios in Wichita and Lawrence, KS, he was able to start working on his catalog exclusively and launch his own indie “S3 Records” , his publishing company “Kingdom 2”, as well as study and pursue his passion for animal rights. Amidst touring up to 60 cities a year and playing over 600 shows with the band, he has managed to amass a catalog of 13 records and over 500 tracks written, recorded, produced and self-released. After years of touring under his moniker with billy and jesse, they took on a new shape this year, writing and recording together under a name that more accurately reflects the miles and chemistry between them, as well as grappling with the questions of grey that arise when one stops looking at the world as us/them and black/white but works towards the unity of “the middle way”... “THE ANGEL/DEVIL”.
