Yesterday, Dallas-based soul-pop artist Chad Goodson released his debut single ‘Looking Glass’. The track showcases Goodson’s signature brand of acoustic soul-driven indie pop and highlights the artist’s smooth vocal melodies and tasteful guitar licks.
“The ‘Looking Glass’ is symbolic for the future I saw with a love interest of mine,” said Goodson of the single. “She wasn’t ready to move forward due to fear and I was caught in between moving forward, but not scaring her away. It’s an emotional track.”
Fans of Ben Howard, Allen Stone and Stevie Wonder, should be pleased with this lightweight yet heavy-hearted melody.
Goodson’s debut single isn’t his first step into the spotlight as an indie artist. He’s known for collaborating with YouTube sensation Haley Klinkhammer. The duo has received an incredible amount of attention online from YouTube music fans with its cover of Shawn Mendes’ ‘Stitches,’ racking up over 130,000 views. Klinkhammer and Goodson also collaborated on a cover of Tori Kelly’s ‘Should’ve Been Us,’ a video that now has over 90,000 views on the online video platform.
Goodson reconnected with two regular collaborators from his YouTube cover videos for the ‘Looking Glass’ music video, creative director Ryan Jacobson and production manager Michael Bradley. The music video will be out this spring.
