S.G. Goodman


Indie rocker S.G. Goodman spent her childhood harvesting sweet corn on her family’s farm in Western Kentucky and mimicking the country warbles of the older women in the Southern Baptist church she attended. She cut her teeth in the post-punk scene of Murray, KY, singing and playing her fledgling songs at the local record store Terrapin Station. She has been profiled in the New York Times, NPR, and Rolling Stone. Her second album, Teeth Marks, was released this year. When she’s not on tour, she connects with the earth, landscaping and moving old furniture off her porch.
