Our Artist of the Week is Joe Goodall and his young band, The Free Radicals!
Eighteen-year-old Joe Goodall and his young band, The Free Radicals (Corin McDonald, Dylan Clark and Alexander Bland), are still at school and have already achieved some significant career milestones. ‘Coffee Shop Dates‘ earned them Artist of the Week in The Scotsman and airplay via Amazing Radio!
Listen to their latest single, ‘Coffee Shop Dates‘, here.
The Band have sold out hometown gigs, set a new record for the number of people in-store at their local HMV (Stirling) and toured with youth music project, Hit The Road. In addition, Goodall is shortlisted for the Young Songwriter of the Year Award 2023.
Recorded and produced by Jamie Turnbull at Idlewild guitarist Rod Jones’s Post Electric Studios, ‘Coffee Shop Dates‘ was self-released on 16th June and is a celebration of Goodall’s excitement at a weekly meet-up with his girlfriend. Joe says, “I would long for and look forward to meeting in our local coffee shop on Saturdays. I simply wanted to put this excitable, happy feeling and experience into a song”.
