“Freak Gospel Pop”, emanating from the dark woods of Oregon, Good God Father molds the archaic with the imminent to reconcile the past with the present, in order to author and usher in a more beautiful future. Marked by somber and sober guitar and vocals, on a march through Armageddon. Sweet and surrendering, while brash, and abrasive sounds to wake the living and dead, in time for dessert.

Can you tell us a few things about your latest release?
Along with all the other chaos that 2020 has thrown our way collectively, it’s also doled out a significant blow myself. In April, my home studio burned to the ground as I was in the process of tracking out what was intended to be a full length. This song is what I managed to recover out of those ashes. So, I’m interpreting that as having some prophetic value in the midst of the chaos. That in spite of the high tensions and confusions across the landscape, worldwide, not all is lost. There’s still something to sing about, and there’s still a future worth pushing and working toward. There’s still a reason to get out of bed in the morning. You might feel like maybe you should just give up. There’s just too much weighing against you and it’s just going to keep bringing the pressure. You might feel like it won’t make any difference what you do. This song is confirmation in itself that it does matter. There is no giving up, because there’s no escaping who you are at the end of the day. There’s always life on the other side, even if you can’t see it.
Any plans for new music or upcoming projects we should know about?
Oh yeah, I had a whole full length under way that I intend to release in stages over time.
