Steve Goodie
A Funny (Music) Business

For as long as songwriters and musicians have been plying their creative wares, it's been understood that music is a funny business. For comedian/songwriter Steve Goodie, a slight twist might be more apt: "Funny is a music business."

House emcee at Nashville's Bluebird Cafe for over a decade, and a favorite of the legendary syndicated radio host/producer Dr. Demento (who calls Goodie "One of our most talented 21st-century parodists"), his songs have also been played on morning shows nation-wide. His Youtube videos have been seen by millions, he's won numerous awards (both for his songwriting and his technical artistry), has appeared on national TV, and performed onstage literally thousands of times. And he's created an entire cottage industry writing and recording songs about Harry Potter.

In the thirty-plus years since Goodie first introduced himself and his hilarious parody songs, original compositions, and hysterically blunt observations about our society and the world-at-large, he's put out a body of work rivaled by few artists of any genre. And, for the most part, he's done it by himself.

In 2018 his A Confederacy Of Douches marked his twenty-ninth release. While a few of the projects (Two Jew Revue, Falling Standards, Actual Size, Girlband, and The Wizenheimerz) have been collaborative efforts, most have been solo, with Goodie writing or co-writing every song, playing almost every instrument, engineering, producing, designing the CD packaging (cassette packaging at first), and even directing and producing his own videos.

A Chicago native who has called Nashville home for the vast majority of his career, Goodie - when not performing or recording his own projects - keeps himself busy with Pitch-Perfect Recording, his full-service studio highly in demand among Music City songwriters and artists. He's also a model train junkie, and admits that the hobby, while not taking up a disproportionate amount of his time, is taking over his house.

Lately, Goodie's been working on a one-man autobiographical musical/multi-media production, the latest incarnation of which he's calling, simply and characteristically, "Steve's Big Dumb Show." He debuted the project in Nashville in 2016, took it on the road for a month of nation-wide house concerts this past Summer, and is currently booking dates for similar tours in Summer and Autumn 2018.

As Ty Hager, a long-time friend and collaborator, puts it: "He's like a f***ing creative Energizer Bunny, and makes all of us lazier musicians look bad. That's why no one likes him."
