Folk/Americana singer-songwriter Craig Gould combines his "Beautiful songs" (Simon Fowler, Ocean Colour Scene) and "Beautiful voice" (Dave Hemingway, The Beautiful South) to entwine his listeners within his "Wonderfully crafted tales" (BBC Introducing)
Gould's unique artistic talent has seen bloggers and critics from around the world draw comparisons with songwriting royalty such as Fleetwood Mac, Cat Stevens, John Lennon and Bob Dylan. Having taken the stage at some of the UK's most loved venues (Birmingham Symphony Hall, Islington Academy, Liverpool Cavern Club) and lauded festivals (Bearded Theory, Solfest, Timber Festival), Gould's unique genre-crossing works have begun to capture the imagination and respect of music fans across the country. Support slots with established acts such as Levellers, Ocean Colour Scene, Brian Downey (Thin Lizzy) and Dave Hemingway (The Beautiful South) paved the way for Gould becoming a headline touring artist in his own right, further reinforcing his growing reputation as one of the hottest new writers & performers on the UK Folk/Americana scene.
2023 sees the release of his greatly anticipated debut album 'Songs from the Campfire' (crowdfunded by over 80 donors) which builds on the resounding success of his first three single releases. BBC Radio support, #1 on the Amazon Music HNR Folk Chart, #2 on the iTunes Country Chart, added to numerous Single of the Week/Year nominations proved that Gould's work is now rightly championed by fanbase, writers and peers.
Proud to work in partnership with the mental health charity CALM, and humbled to have recently joined the official artist roster of Tanglewood guitars, Gould's ability to convert heartfelt stories into song is finally coming to the fore.
