I'm a musician.
You may think this a bold statement for someone who doesn't play professionally, and who seldom plays in public. But it's true. I've been a musician my whole life. My parents met in music school at the University of Colorado in Boulder, and I've been playing a variety of instruments and singing since my early childhood.
More than that, though, I love music. It has provided the soundtrack of my life, and as such, has provided much of the rich colors in my life tapestry.
I'm with David Crosby: Music is Love.
Which is why a page dedicated to music makes sense to me.
On this page, I'll share some of my music, some music from my sons, Julian and Dustin, and their band, Sono Lumini, and a variety of other pieces of music that I love.
I hope you enjoy!
Tom Goddard's Music
Behind this link is a collection of in which I have participated in the creation as either writer, singer, instrumentalist, or some combination thereof. Some are solo, and some are collaborations with my sons and/or friends.
I am a shameless promoter of the music of my sons, Julian Goddard and Dustin Goddard. With Phill Gayle, they form the funk-jam group known as Sono Lumini, based in Athens, Georgia. This part of the site is carved out for them. Because love.
Everybody else, from Clapton to Coltrane to Beethoven to Snarky Puppy
This part of the web site is simply dedicated to the music that I love that seems to fit in this context of a web site devoted to Love.
