Danny Newcomb’s stellar reemergence comes as no surprise to fans who have followed this talented native son since his rise as lead guitarist and songwriter for Goodness, the alt-rock Seattle band that released three albums and toured worldwide, supporting acts such as Pearl Jam, Cheap Trick, and Oasis, and co-headlined a tour with Candlebox (1995-2004). Goodness reunited for two sold-out concerts in 2008 and 2009. Newcomb is also a founding member of The Rockfords, a Seattle band that also featured Mike McCready of Pearl Jam, Carrie Akre (Goodness, Hammerbox), Chris Friel, and Rick Friel, and released three albums (2000-2004). Newcomb, McCready, and the Friel brothers first made rock music together in the metal/punk band Shadow in the mid-1980s.
Danny Newcomb is not only one of the best guitarists in the Northwest—he has also always been an amazing songwriter. His new album, Masterwish, is fantastic, and I hope people take the time to listen! They won’t be disappointed. – Mike McCready, lead guitarist, Pearl Jam
