“5th Street” by Gwen Good

So much brightness to such a dark song. You hear an abundance of melancholy in all her work, but there is something with “Fifth St.” that is exposing her emotions a little bit deeper than usual.

The acoustic guitar lays down a railway for the song. It allows a lasting cadence for the vocals to shine through. Although they are in opposition of one another I might add; The brightness to the song is hit by all the right notes on the guitar. With heavy and heartfelt lyrics and vocals to grab the attention of the listeners ears. You are dragged into this song as if it was an undercurrent. When “Fifth St.” starts you are teased with innocence of a young artist, you will get very matured sounds and emotions throughout the entirety of the song.

Yes, Gwen Good outdid herself again. At this trajectory who knows how far she can go in music. At a young age this artist has such a strong foundation to make and market music as the best in the industry do.

The MusicManiac Finds Out

Q: What’s the story behind your latest album or single?

A: I wrote Fifth St, my latest single about the feeling when you are no longer in someone else’s life and the pain that can come from it.

Q: What do you think sets you apart from other musicians in your genre?

A: One thing that might set me apart from other musicians is I’m very much a DIY person, making my own cover art (like the painting I made for Fifth St) and doing all of my own marketing for my music, although I think that’s pretty common with smaller artists!

Q: How do you feel your music has evolved over the years?

A: When I wrote my first EP, Horizon, I was still learning how to put a song together. And now with my newer music I’m really focusing on creating more developed stories with my songs. I think my vocals have gotten better as well, the more songs I make.

Q: What advice would you give to aspiring musicians trying to break into the industry?

A: I would tell aspiring musicians to focus on making the music really good first. Once you’ve done that you can work on growing an audience, but the music should always come first.

Q: What are your goals and aspirations for your music career in the future?

A: I’m starting to record a second EP and my goal is to really step outside of my comfort zone and create something unique and authentic to me.
