Is there anything Chinese restaurants can’t do? Egg rolls—Got ‘em. Paper dragons —No problem. And if you’re GOODBLOOD, the singer-songwriter duo from Columbus, Ohio, they’re also a great place to meet prospective bandmates. Shortly after being introduced at a friend’s birthday party (yep, at a Chinese restaurant) in 2011, Jason Turner and Tyler Earnest began writing songs together and eventually started a band called Fashion Week. The band released several EPs and secured opening spots for bands like Churchill and CRUISR, but in 2015 Turner and Earnest decided to expand their creative output to include a new project and collection of songs with a different focus in mind. “We wanted to make music that was simple and really emotive — stuff that shows a different side of what we’re into,” Turner said. “And we wanted to do it in a way that was easy and more spontaneous—songs that didn’t require an excessive amount of tracks or weeks and weeks in the studio.” The result was the beginning of GOODBLOOD and a crop of songs that went on to comprise their debut EP— Don’t Lose Your Head. The band’s second EP—Domestic Bliss— was released on September 1, 2017 and features tracks like Flyin’ and Hold Me Now. GOODBLOOD’s signature sound features predominantly acoustic instrumentation, memorable melodies and deeply personal lyrics and draws from artistic influences like Vance Joy, Sufjan Stevens and Julien Baker.
