(Review from RingMaster Review @Zykotika)

If a song has you ‘doo doo be dooing’ within seconds on the very first listen, you know it is doing something right. In Our Parents Eyes does that and more, the new single from singer/songwriter Nish Goyal one boisterously and seriously magnetic slice of indie/folk revelry. There is also a scent of punk to the song’s highly flavoursome stroll which again simply adds to its rousing prowess.

Hailing from Chester and of Indian heritage, Goyal graduated in law and briefly worked in The City as a legal advisor before moving to Frankfurt to take up a stockbroking job. From his early years though, music was a major part of his life and in 2011 Nish quit his day job and immersed himself in his music. Initially mastering the piano,over time he navigated to the guitar and bass with his music breeding fresh textures and avenues to explore. A debut album called A Little Validation was followed by The Hedonist EP before last year the eight-track EP, The Rage was released to great responses. A pair of singles in Get Started and Save the Day only enticed more attention alongside a live presence which has seen Goyal play the likes of The Jacaranda, The Cavern, and appear at 2000 Trees Festival in Gloucestershire last summer; that followed by a tour across America where he played eleven shows in eight states.

Recently signing with the Portsmouth based indie label Coffee Jingle Records for his next album, scheduled for early this year, Goyal unveils its first rich temptation for it in the thrilling shape of In Our Parents Eyes. As mentioned, within less than a handful of breaths the song has voice and hips involved in its anthemic doo doos. A first strum of guitar provides the spark before becoming a persistent companion to a growing flirtation of rhythms and a net of spicy, slightly bluesy melodic enterprise which follows.

In voice Goyal is just as welcoming; his snappy delivery like an old mate ready to re-ignite fun whilst sharing the songwriter’s own experiences of growing up in the UK with Indian parents and the conflict rising within trying to be a musician whilst trying to please his family with a more academic career.

Like a mix of Glenn Hodge, Flogging Molly, and Billy Bragg, the track is a spirit raising, thought sparking romp which has all the qualities to nudge the name Nish Goyal towards bigger spotlights.

In Our Parents Eyes was released March 11th via Coffee Jingle Records.

Exciting news! 

Been a while as I have started a songwriting degree at BIMM Manchester... but thats not the big news...

I'm opening for Sex Pistols man Glen Matlock at Manchester's Deaf Institute on Wednesday 30th November!!!!!! Cannot describe how proud and happy I am!

What an AMAZING tour! 

Well well well! It's been a while and been a....FULL...few months! So firstly we launched the 1st single from the upcoming album on 11th March in Liverpool followed by gigs around the country including Oxford, London's legendary Nambucca, Northampton, Leicester, Bournemouth, Manchester, Newcastle and of course my hometown Chester. Each and every set was memorable in it's own way, from sets where the crowd took over the singing to ones where 4 people showed up and we had a lock in until 5am!

Indeed many of you may have noticed that we started out as a 5 piece and ended as a 2 piece, with varying numbers of band members at various gigs...this was because we were using National Express and Trains for most the tour thanks to complications with driving licences and an unfortunate incident but nonetheless we had a BLAST on the road! It's amazing how you very quickly learn all about your bandmates when yo are stuck on a bus together for 9 hours.

Infact our darkest hour came when we had to board a coach at 8am from Chester to get to Leicester, where after we sopundchecked and played our gig we immediately jumped on a night bus back to Chester. Having arrived back to Chester at 5am we proceeded to stumble to our homes for a 2 hour nap before boarding ANOTHER coach at 8am to go to Bristol to play! And like sado-maschocists instead of SLEEPING after the set we went partying until 3am!

Happily for the last part of the tour we had a car so all was well and we entered festival season in high spirits. Our performances at Bath International Music Festival was garnished with a photo shoot with BBC Bristol and then we hit In Bloom Fest, 2000 Trees, Chester Live Festival and Conwy Connect during some GLORIOUS weather.


Sorry it's been a while! 

Hey all so sorry it's been so long! So much to tell you in any case.... Firstly I have been locked `way in the studio working on the new album which is progressing brilliantly! Hopefully vocals will be done in the next few weeks. 
Meanwhile, the first single 'In Our Parent's Eyes' is now out!!!!! It's available on all major retail and stream sites and as usual you can hit up the links on my homepage to iTunes and what not.

The other thing that has been going on is that I have been organising a tour with the awesome Cherry Valentine Promotions and have dates around the country to announce in the coming days. Even better is that a lot of these dates will be with a band that I have been rehearsing with solidly for a while so get ready to rock out!!!!

More posts to come regularly now that things are coming together!

My final post of the year 

Merry Christmas all!!! It has been an excellent year on planet Nish and I can confirm in the last few days I have signed with the legendary Blue Soap Music for my PR campaign next year. In other news the first single from "Under a Tree" will be out on 11th March. Recording on the album is going sterling and I can't wait till you all get to hear what I have been doing.

I would also like to say a special thanks to everyone who has joined the effort or listened to my music and to all those involved with the recording, production and promotion.

Merry Christmas everyone!

What a week! 

Well, it has been a truly chaotic week. I have been hunkered down in the studio for the best part and am pleased to be able to say that drums, accoustic guitars and bass is now recorded for all my songs on the new album. Unfortunately t I still have to write and record electric guitars, mandolins, banjo, harmonica, lead guitar, saxophone and violin parts as well as record vocals so still a LOT to do.

In other news I have been busy applying for festivals for next summer as well as trying to blag radio play. To that end I have recorded an interview with Deeside radio which will be going out on Fri 4th December along with a few spins of my song 'Get Started@ and a brand new song!!

Anywey I think that is all for now!
