Johnny Goudie is a Cuban-American singer, songwriter, multi-instrumental musician, record producer and podcaster based in Austin, Texas. Through his four-decade career, Johnny's musical experiences span the artistic gauntlet and include being the frontman of many bands including Goudie (Elektra Records), the guitarist/keyboardist/backing vocalist for renowned touring acts like Ian Moore & Bodeans, a songwriter working with the likes of Jane Wiedlin, Charlotte Caffey and Kathy Valentine (Go-Go's), a solo artist capable of revealing a previously unseen intimacy, and of course, keyboardist/vocalist for SKYROCKET! In January of 2018, Johnny enlisted the help of his old friend, producer/guitarist, "Scrappy" Jud Newcomb (Slaid Cleaves, Ian McLagan) and recorded four songs for an upcoming e.p. to be released September 13, 2018. 

In 2011 Johnny took his talents to the world of podcasting and launched “How Did I Get Here?”, an audio segment that takes the form of a casual living room conversation while simultaneously packing the punch of a formal interview. With thousands of subscribers, the show has garnered a worldwide fanbase through Johnny's curiosity and disarming sense of humor. He’s hosted renowned guests like Ian McLagan (The Faces, The Rolling Stones), Dwight Twilley, The Bodeans, as well as up and comers like White Denim and Wild Child. What was first an archive of Austin music history is quickly becoming a chronicle of music beyond city limits.
