Songwriters Nicolette Good & Scott Martin swap songs at New World Deli after meeting at the Dripping Springs Songwriters Festival in 2019.
Nicolette Good is a Texas singer-songwriter and 2012 Kerrville New Folk winner. In a voice that’s at once refined and raw, she sings with penetrating insight about hope, wrenching love, and the mysteries of everyday life.
Nicolette’s latest release, Reverie (2019), celebrates her craft of songwriting with compositions such as the title track, as well as “Oasis” and “C’mon Doc.” It was recorded at Ramble Creek recording studio in Austin, TX.
She’s shared bills with Mason Jennings, The Flatlanders, Caitlin Rose, Carrie Rodriguez, David Ramirez, Lincoln Durham, and Juanita Stein, to name a few. Good can be heard as a solo, duo, or full-band act in listening rooms, and house concerts across the country.
A Houston native, Nicolette is also a staff musician for Home Street Music, an Austin non-profit using music to empower people who have lived on the streets.
Scott Martin of Austin, Texas is a native of the great Northwest. He’s been a finalist at the Telluride Troubadour Contest, a winner at Songwriter Serenade, a finalist at the Wildflower Performing Songwriter contest, and a Regional Finalist twice at the Kerrville New Folk contest.
Scott’s record “Missing — Songs for the Lost, Loved & Unforgotten” was released in 2018. It features Scott’s superlative fingerstyle playing on James Goodall guitars and 2+ octaves of rich, soulful vocals. The project was produced, mixed and mastered by Mark Hallman at Congress House Studio in Austin.
The album features a song cycle about historical missing persons such as Amelia Earhart, DB Cooper, Everett Ruess, Virginia Dare, Percy Fawcett, as well as 16th century “science martyr” Giordano Bruno. Also in the song lineup are several more personal songs about letting go, what might have been, and finding redemption after loss.View Map
