About Goodman Artists
Based in Chicago, Goodman Artists focuses on emerging musicians who combine their artistic excellence with an original creation produced by curiosity and exploration. Challenged by the internet, TV, and pop cultural Goodman Artists works closely with its artists to develop their programs based on a concept that is engaging to audiences. That can be unique instrumentation, audience participation (in developing the work), or a strong cultural influence.
GA is careful to only work with artists that understand the importance of being a part of a team effort to provide you with the necessary support to promote their shows.
The idea of “Crave Curiosity” came to me when I started to realize that while I live in a hip urban city, a majority of the people I would encounter whether close acquaintance or the random folks I meet while out and about wouldn’t be familiar with the variety of events and performances that we presenters, agents and artists are so anxious to share with them. The obvious reasons were budget and schedule. But there is something else out there far greater than those two elements combined: (because let’s face it: when I see a new purse I like or want to hang with my friends: I find the money and I make the time). The missing element is curiosity.
The musicians on the GA roster, while each offering projects that distinguish themselves all share one common denominator: they encourage your audience crave curiosity.
