Guitarist Joel Schneider and drummer Ethan Jacobsen epitomize the purest distillation of rock, blues and punk. They both hail from other notable Seattle bands, but their sonic chemistry became immediately apparent when they began playing together. Very quickly they were offered a show and needed a name. Since they both felt like they were playing music that they had kept to themselves in prior bands they referred to that feeling as their goodness... therefore My Goodness. Like their fated-meeting, their music grabs you from the very first impression and draws you in for more and more. These two have harnessed the essence of their influences in a most compelling and uniquely rich way that spills out of them and rips in to the heart of rock and roll.

We all grew up here in Chicago. People sing our songs at our shows, even the ones we haven't recorded yet. Two out of three sound guys think we rock. We love playing live, and bring a lot of energy to every performance. We don't have enough money to break our equipment during encores yet, but we are working on it.

The Sound:

We blend sounds from our main influences The Lawrence Arms, Spoon, Nirvana, The Rolling Stones, Beatles, Bear vs. Shark, and The Who to get an arousing, ear tantalizing, hip thrusting, pulsating, and catchy, yet addicting form of indie Rock.
