Long For The Coast is the ever-evolving musical project from Jamie Gould. With a combination of sincere lyrics and beautiful melodies, he sing stories about social change, spiritual adventures, and close friends lost and found.
Jamie’s music combines influences from artists such as Ben Howard, Bonobo, This Is The Kit, Nitin Sawhney, Frank Turner, and Sufjan Stevens. Appearing as a solo act, they’ve been championed by BBC Radio 6 Music as well as playing at Nozstock, Greenbelt and Shambala festivals.
Honest, endearing, and fiercely hopeful, Jamie believes that ‘music is community’ and he aims to promote a culture of authenticity where people feel safe to be themselves. From cafés and festivals to book shops and bakeries, Jamie can be seen playing anywhere that people might listen. Debut album Revolution Starts At Home received fantastic reviews and airplay whilst continuing to gain hundreds of thousands of streams on Spotify and tens of thousands of views on Youtube.
