The Goodbye Plot

The Goodbye Plot

BandAlternativeFolk

The Goodbye Plot invoke a mix of the dusty, alt rock introspection of artists like Wilco & Elliott Smith and the atmospheric folk of luminaries such as Sufjan Stevens & Bonnie 'Prince' Billy.

Biography

The Goodbye Plot are Jon Muraca, Brynn Chappell, Gareth Price & Dave Killick.

This year has corrupted the souls of The Goodbye Plot, transforming them into a mechanical wonder. Five Months on the road led them to an intense period of recording at their home studio in Manchester, UK. The resulting EP, "A Night’s Darkness & A Day’s Drive" is the culmination of a long journey for the four piece from Manchester, UK.

Jon, Brynn & Gareth’s paths crossed six years ago on their first ever day in the city, all wide eyed to study music. A silent union was formed in those moments that would come back to haunt them in later days.

Jon arrived in Manchester in a piano box, with a voice & guitar in tow to make a place for himself as a songwriter. Brynn carried a typewriter under his guitar arm & they wrote songs & wrote more songs. Brynn took a trip to America, returned, & the duo got serious about things.

Which is when they moved into this house, with a fellow called Gareth, (remember him), where instruments outnumbered people ten to one & they could begin recording.

Gareth’s Father was the music teacher in his local elementary school, which allowed him to sneak back into the rooms after hours to play the instruments that now occupied the house.

Finishing their first record in early 2004 they produced a small run, took a deep breath & released it into the world which led to a string of shows & the search for a drummer.

Dave was well known to the band before he was strong-armed into joining, attending the same musical college & being a prominent member of the Manchester music scene. His passion for the drums was known to everyone.

Handshakes now over, the band, fully formed retired once again to their house to work on what has now become "A Night’s Darkness & A Day’s Drive". Gathering around their upright piano to refine their style & ability has produced a sound somewhere between the uplifting guitar driven indie rock of Doves & Arcade Fire with the imaginative pop of Badly Drawn Boy & Elliott Smith.
