Kele Goodwin (with Laura Gibson and Douglas Jenkins), "A Kiss For Your Eyes," from The Spider (self-released)


Good god, this song is beautiful.

The ever-humble and shy-in-a-good-way Kele Goodwin offers up wise, softly sung words: "We love and we lie/ But you were right/ We will survive." Everyone's favorite local folkstress, Laura Gibson, adds aching, haunting backup vocals. And Bright...   More
