About
I'm a former touring and recording pro with years of experience in acoustic music backing up Chicago folk icons such as Bonnie Koloc, John Prine, and Steve Goodman when I was a young lad. Since, I have written and performed with formidable musicians and various genres. My strong instrumental suit is guitar. I am very comfortable and capable of writing melodies.

Hi David,

I recently joined SongwriterLink and your name came up as a potential co-writer since you primarily compose music and I write only lyrics. I particularly enjoy writing historically based ballads, and have had an interest in the American West and the Civil War for years - writing numerous articles for Wild West, True West, and Old West magazines.

I have some success through the years, mainly in the "niche and independent-artist" category. I have written or co-written the lyrics to three charted songs: "Handmade Nails and Homemade Love" (#4 on the Power Source Top 20 charts and the month's most played bluegrass song on Sirius XM radio) "Rockwell's Gold" (# 3 on the Bluegrass Unlimited charts) & “Devil of the Trail” (# 12 on Bluegrass Music Profiles Top 30.

You might want to snoop through a few of my lyrics to see if anything catches your eye. I have put a number of them on SongwriterLink, and you can also download all of them for free, as an ebook, on Smashwords.com - by entering my name.

Hope to hear from you,
Dennis Goodwin
