S.G. Goodman Announces Jim James–Produced LP “Old Time Feeling”

The first single from the folk songwriter’s debut, “The Way I Talk,” arrives today with a stunning video.

Today, Western Kentucky songwriter S.G. Goodman is announcing her debut record Old Time Feeling just before hitting the road for an extensive U.S. tour that’ll see her opening for the likes of John Moreland, Nada Surf, and Son Volt after likely gaining traction next weekend at SXSW.

Much of the record explores the songwriter’s upbringing in Murray, Kentucky, on a religious family farm and how that setting shaped her as a gay woman. The first single, “The Way I Talk,” and its video specifically highlight “the plight of the farming community in Kentucky where [she] grew up, where big business and the laws that protect them have vast control over my community,” she told The Fader. Watch the video for the single—filmed at her family’s farm—below.

The record was produced by Grammy-nominated My Morning Jacket frontman Jim James, who discovered Goodman’s music through a mutual friend, and who clearly believes her unique perspective is something needed in pop culture. “I think she could play an important role in the healing we need to see happen right now,” he noted in a press release. “She’s living proof that we can be whoever we want to be, no matter where we come from.” 

Old Time Feeling is out May 29 on Verve Forecast. You can pre-order it here, and catch her on tour at the dates below.
