Craig Gould is an up and coming Americana/Folk singer-songwriter based in the United Kingdom. Featured on various platforms including BBC Introducing, Gould has created quite the name for himself. Using his powerful vocals and beautiful songwriting, he creates stories out of his music that teleports you to a different realm. Moreover, he uses it as a coping mechanism to recover from mental illness. He also uses it to help other people combat their mental illnesses. With listeners from India all the way to Austria, Craig is slowly building a fan following.
His latest single, Burned, is a masterpiece of Americana. With similarities to Don McLean and Billy Joel, the song has so much power and strength behind it. The guitar is a joy to listen to with all its tinniness. Additionally, the drums are simple, minimal and fun to listen to. I love how his instrumental is relatively simple but is something you can find yourself bobbing your head along to. His vocals, powerful as they are, cut through the mix perfectly. There’s something about good ol’ Americana that gets you in the mood to get things done and Burned is no different.
Craig Gould has crafted a few other tracks with some amazing emotional releases. You can find more of his music on his Spotify and other streaming platforms. Trust me, there’s some absolute gold there.
