Looking Glass” hints at the artist’s versatile influences, Ben Howard, Allen Stone and Stevie Wonder, and leaves the listener happily heartbroken. Out on Monday, April 24, 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. Nominated for the “Texas Solo Artist Award” from Bridging The Music, he will celebrate the release of his single onstage at the Curtain Club in Deep Ellum at 8 p.m. during the awards showcase that evening. Doors open at 6 p.m. and tickets can be purchased here for $10 in advance. Curtain Club is located at 2800 Main St., Dallas, Texas 75226. 

“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.”

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 teamed up 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. 

Recorded at Dallas Baptist University (DBU) Studio, the single was mixed and produced by Fort Worth native JC Minton and mastered by Reece Murphy. Sebastian Suarez (David Porcheddu/Rick Pino) chimed in on percussion, Cameron McCabe on keys and Gabriel Gamboa (David Porcheddu/Rick Pino) on bass  

Goodson teamed up 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.

Looking Glass” will be available for purchase on Monday, April 24 through iTunes. It will also be available to stream on Spotify. For more information on Chad Goodson, visit his YouTube page here
