ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Goemon’s beautiful stories create a colourful carpet of poetry that draw inspiration from all aspects of a modern man’s life, as well as from traditional themes such as heartbreak, betrayal, and social injustice. His guitar play smells like chamomile tea, his voice tastes like honey, and even though he drops the odd beat or two, he makes you want to hold on to that sound, because Goemon's vocal magic transforms even your most depressing experience into a multicoloured autumn breeze.
What he does not achieve with his own skills on vocals, guitar, and ukulele is easily supplemented by his overly talented musical friends, among others Corry Ulan (Magnolia Buckskin; banjo, vocals), Joanna Drummond (vocals), Mike Little (accordion), Spencer Cheyne (percussion), Shannon Magee (Georgia Sound; piano, vocals), and Barbara Olorenshaw (violin).
"Like a modern-day troubadour." Hello Moth, musician.

Goemon draws much of his inspiration from his multicultural background. Born and raised in the declining Soviet Union, educated and politically nourished in the European Union, Goemon soon had his lifetime fill in Union experience. In his consequential quest for everlasting loneliness he took on a Japanese pseudonym and grew himself an outrageous and outright obsolete Irish mustache. Equipped with the most resonant voice since Jericho, the twelve strings of salvation and a deep love for music and life itself, Goemon set sail to conquer Canada, and become the first Reichskanzler of Newfoundland.
"[...] the voice of an angel, a German angel." Brendon Aberdeen, musician.

Due to academic distractions he got stuck in the Olympic city of Calgary, where he sings for justice, cookies and that warm inner feeling that only a genuine Guinness can overcome. He soon started to gather an array of musical instruments, and, so time allows, even plays them. But no matter how many instruments end up stuck in Goemon’s basement, his most powerful argument will always remain his voice. So say his sleepless house mates, and they ought to know ...
"I just want him to follow me around all day, and play music." Jacqueline, former student of Goemon.

His musical baseline is Celtic (Irish Traditionals were his first love), but his debut album “The Fire Within” spreads a colourful spectrum of charming tunes, based on traditional Folk music, and side-stepping into genres like Country, Bluegrass, and Blues. Among his greatest influences he names Dave Carter, Annabelle Chvostek, Kate Rusby, David Francey, Stan Rogers, and Amy Thiessen, with a side of The High Kings, and Great Big Sea, and a pinch of Jack Johnson and Richard Thompson.
"When it comes to melancholic compositions there are many artists who hit rock-bottom with their songs. Goemon somehow discovered a trap-door, to drive it even deeper." Jonathan Fergusson, musician.
