LOVE SOMEBODY BIO

Expect the unexpected when it comes to the GoodFellers! Their award-winning traditional bluegrass chops don't tell the whole story. With a sound shaped by various musical backgrounds and highlighted by rock flavored vocals, the band moves seamlessly through different styles making each GoodFellers song unique and entertaining. They have fun when they play and it's infectious.  

Rooted in bluegrass, inspired by rock vocals and with an ever-expanding set list that draws from most musical styles, each GoodFellers show promises to be unique and entertaining. Versatility bolstered by award-winning musicianship has made the GoodFellers in demand all along the East Coast and beyond.  The GoodFellers have traveled throughout the USA, Canada, and Europe, constantly redefining their own unique Newgrass sound.  Along the way, the band has recorded and performed thousands of songs from all music styles. 

North Carolina’s band, The GoodFellers, forthcoming album "Love Somebody," is a project created by band founders Teddy Barneycastle and Ralph McGee. Both had wanted to create a driving bluegrass album with songs and arrangements that reflect their soulful and unique sound for a long time. "Love Somebody" developed into the band's favorite rock, pop, and bluegrass songs arranged and recorded in their own style.

With COVID-19 hitting the world in 2020, The GoodFellers Band was unable to collaborate for 5 months. Basically, they were able to communicate and work together by Zoom, FaceTime, and conference calls. The band members found it difficult to write during the pandemic because of being more concerned with families and friends.

Since the pandemic has lifted, The GoodFellers are again touring and reaching out to fans with their music at festivals and events. For more information about their music and touring visit, http://www.GoodFellersBand.Com

The Goodfeller’s first single, "To Love Somebody," features the rich, earthy voice of Teddy Barneycastle. The song debuted at #1 on Grassicana’s Bluegrass Today Chart and continues to be a favorite to listeners who are drawn to Newgrass music. Teddy describes what inspired him to record the song, "I got a call today from a friend of mine who is a Texas writer. We share a mutual friend who was also an entertainer; he lost his mom today, which upset me and brought to mind the line "You don't know what it's like, baby, you don't know what it's like, to love somebody, to love somebody, the way I love you." I think those are compelling lyrics; they really hit me today, tears and all. I thought, how powerful are the words to that song. Maybe I need to rethink what I'm doing. I want to affect people with our music, making them love more, hate less, laugh, think of others, and enjoy their lives. 

Their music is fresh, driving, unique and bluegrass that moves the soul!

SONG BIOS FROM TEDDY BARNECASTLE

Track 1
Where the Streets Have No Name
ISRC: QZRJ62140002
Writers Adam Clayton, David Evans, Paul David Hewson, Laurence Mullens
Publishing: Universal-Polygram Intl Pub o/b/o U2
Teddy Barneycastle, lead vocals, rhythm guitar
Kyser George, lead guitar
David George, vocals, bass, dobro
Ralph McGee, vocals, mandolin
Hersie McMillian, Banjo
First of all it's U2, and the song speaks of basically building up to love then tearing it down. From our view, the music speaks of cities and small towns and the people that have been forgotten. And it's a U2 song that most of us grew up listening to


Track 2
Somebody Loves You, Darling

Kyser George, lead guitar
David George, vocals, bass, dobro
Ralph McGee, vocals, mandolin
Tommy “Moss” Morse, Banjo
The song has been recorded many times by various bluegrass artists, but we had never heard it until after researching the history of the one. The best we can figure is that the song is probably over a hundred years old. The storyline speaks of a gentleman that is in love with someone else but is convinced that at some point, she will be his wife. The first time we did the song, I had goosebumps. It was like we were meant to record this song. Vocally I connected to it instantly.

Track 3
I Know Where Love Lives - FEATURED SINGLE
ISRC: TCAFP2146402
Written by Hal Ketchum
Publisher OBO Hecktone Music
Teddy Barneycastle, lead vocals, rhythm guitar
Featuring: Harmony Vocals: John Cowan & Pat Flynn
Kyser George, lead guitar
David George, bass, dobro
Ralph McGee, mandolin
Tommy “Moss” Morse, Banjo
The whole band is all huge Hal Ketchum fans. It is so pure and honest as to what, in our opinion, life is about, family, love, simple life of loving your family and raising kids. Hal seems to understand that "less is more." It's a great song, and we wanted to honor Hal's life.

Track 4
Like a Stone
Written by Timothy Commerford, Chris Cornell, Thomas Morello, Brad Wilk
Publisher: Melee Savvy Music, And Me3 Publishing
ISRC: QZRJ62140005
Teddy Barneycastle, lead vocals, rhythm guitar
Kyser George, lead guitar
David George, vocals, bass, dobro
Ralph McGee, vocals, mandolin
Rex McGee, Banjo
When the news of Chris Cornell's passing became public, we, like most Cornell fans, went straight to his music for comfort. As I listened to Like a Stone, it was very spiritual for me. There are overtones in the song that lead me to feel like he was talking to God. He spoke of a book full of death, and the Bible is full of death and full of life. Chris says of longing to be in a house where like. The stone he wasn't leaving, he was willing to wait for as long as it took. The words most feel like a prayer in a way.

Track 5
Get in the Wind
Written by G Place
Publisher: Mea Culpa
ISRC: QZRJ62140005
Teddy Barneycastle, lead vocals, rhythm guitar
Kyser George, lead guitar
David George, vocals, bass, dobro
Ralph McGee, vocals, mandolin
Tommy “Moss” Morse, Banjo
It's no secret the GoodFellers are huge NewGrass revival fans. And with their induction into the IBMA's Hall of Fame in 2020, being loyal fans, we wanted to pay tribute to one of the greatest bands on earth. For all their accomplishments and what they did for newgrass music. Doing an NGR one was a must for the GoodFellers.

Track 6
To Love Somebody - FEATURED SINGLE
(DEBUT CHARTING AT #1 ON BLUEGRASS TODAY GRASSICANA CHARTS)
Written by Barry Gibb
Publisher: Universal Music Publisher. Mgb Ltd.
ISRC: QZRJ62140007
Teddy Barneycastle, lead vocals, rhythm guitar
Kyser George, lead guitar
David George, vocals, bass, dobro
Ralph McGee, vocals, mandolin
Hersie McMillian, Banjo
One of the greatest love songs ever written. I had been playing it around the house for several weeks, and Ralph stopped by one day and said, "you know what would be a great tune for us." To love somebody by the Bee Gees. I picked up the guitar, and we worked out our version. I'm sure glad we did because it turned out great.

Track 7
Last Train
Written by Peter Rowan
Publisher: Universal Songs of Polygram International Inc.
ISRC: TCAFP2146439
Teddy Barneycastle, lead vocals, rhythm guitar
Kyser George, lead guitar
David George, vocals, bass, dobro
Ralph McGee, vocals, mandolin
Tommy “Moss” Morse, Banjo
Written by Peter Rowan, was just so powerful with the storyline. It's easy to see this poor guy standing at an old train station begging his love not to leave and take the baby. All he needed was another chance to prove himself, and he was still trying even after the train had left the station. We took Peter's version and Lou Reid's version that influenced us to put our own twist on it.

Track 8
E.M.D
Written by David Grisman
Publisher: Dawg Music
ISRC: TCAFP2146501
Teddy Barneycastle, lead vocals, rhythm guitar
Kyser George, lead guitar
David George, vocals, bass, dobro
Ralph McGee, vocals, mandolin
Tommy “Moss” Morse, Banjo
A tremendous instrumental that when we do it live, we do something special.
This was a fun album to do but was met with a lot of challenges to complete. We pray everyone enjoys it as much as we did making the album, "Love Somebody."
