‘Roll With Me’ is the eagerly anticipated debut EP from UK singer-songwriter, Josh Goddard

Manchester based singer-songwriter Josh Goddard comes through with his eagerly anticipated debut EP ‘Roll With Me’. Citing a range of influences including Ray Charles, Sam Cooke and Otis Redding, Josh’s first body of work comes fully formed with inflections of Soul, Jazz and Rhythm and Blues.

The ‘Roll With Me’ EP features four new tracks recorded at Liverpool’s iconic Parr Street Studios (Diana Ross, Bjork, Elbow), including his most recent singles ‘Roll With Me’ and ‘Hear My Cry’. With title track ‘Roll With Me’ introducing the EP with Josh’s signature groove and style, the single was swiftly followed up with the slower, smoother ‘Hear My Cry’.

Showcasing the versatility in his songwriting, Josh now releases two previously unheard tracks in ‘On My Mind’ and ‘Stumble’ which add another tantalizing level to his work. Maintaining a focus on the influences that underline the majority of his work Josh states; “’On My Mind’ is more of a modern soul tune. It’s about seeing a girl when you’re out but you only know what she looks like, you’ve never spoke and you can’t get her off your mind.”

He adds ““Say something make sense of it afterwards” this is the first line of ‘Stumble’. It’s like when you are stumbling and fumbling to say the right words to a pretty girl”

Josh continues to add contemporary touches throughout the EP, highlighting the unique, powerful and raw vocal that this young artist is quickly becoming known for. Having supported legendary RnB singer Martha Reeves as well as playing major festival slots at Kendal Calling and Dot To Dot Festival, Josh has picked up support from the likes of BBC Introducing and this stunning debut body of work will continue to build his presence across the online tastemaker world.

Following the release Josh is set to embark on a 22 date UK headline tour with performances at The Castle, Manchester and London’s Under The Bridge. Full details can be found below.
