Goh Nakamura is a SF Bay Area based musician who likes to write ditties about parking tickets, impossible crushes and faraway dreamlands (amongst other things). Accompanying himself with digital samplers and an acoustic guitar, his live solo shows are always unique and often unpredictable.
Goh has contributed his guitar and vocal work to the Ridley Scott films "A Good Year" and most recently "American Gangster". His song "Daylight Savings" was chosen to be included on the soundtrack to the Robert Benton film "Feast of Love" starring Morgan Freeman and Greg Kinnear. His debut album "Daylight Savings" is available at cdbaby.com and itunes. His long awaited 2nd album, "Ulysses" will be available on August 20th.

Here's a little background about Goh Nakamura (from his website):
So how would I describe Goh's music? If you took a blender and tossed in some Elliot Smith on a sunny day, some vocal stylings sometimes reminiscent of Elvis Costello and the instrumental backing of Simon and Garfunkel (before the breakup!), then you might come close. Or you could take a listen to some samplings and decide for yourself. Here are some links to Goh and his music:
Nakayoshi will also be tabling and passing out our info by the merch table at the show. Be sure to stop by and say hi!
