Biography

Pulling from the richness of innovation rampant in the Northwestern United States, Good God Father draws the lines between the heart and mind to evoke a passion yet to be found beneath the haze and smog of industrialized society.
Crafting soulful sounds and chants from the ancient along with the modern, Lewis pays homage to standard rock sympathies, while inspiring rennovated reverence to voices and stories which made Western Civilization a once great, and mystical power in the world.
Now, in the New West, as the shadows of Global Civilization and government loom over sea to shining sea, pole to pole, meridian to meridian, Good God Father welcomes a message of hope, victory, and a luminescent courage of humble beginnings, and diligent determination to overcome the odds that are seemingly stacked against you with an expectation of better days that come through patient endurance.
Hailing from the Northwestern valleys of Oregon, after worming through set after set on stage after stage up and down I5, from Salem to Seattle, Sean rises from the mire of a murky and elusive music culture to piece together sites, sounds, and ideals that provoke a deeper sense of connectedness with the purpose of song, and its impact on humanity. Being set on such fertile grounds, former frontman of Auburn, Masonic Weird, and Martyred Whitmans, and former guitar player for Glory Days of Primetime TV and Joshua Fire, Lewis retains the soul of developmental aspirations, and channels them in to a holistic collaborative of artistic, and musical performance as a means of gripping the senses of curious public in to a moment by moment story, documenting the historical act of Life itself.
In tandem, Sean hosts a live YouTube stream, called Swandezvous, which intermittently gives updates, and broadcast sporadic performances, placing the agenda of Good God Father on the forefront of modern cultural phenomenon.
As part of the process, Good God Father intends to offer contextual information regarding necessary qualities of the music as it becomes available.
With new music on the way, the writing process continues, even without any other contributing members to the active body.
So you, now, the reader, get to be alive with this idea as it arrives before you, moment after moment, all parties are participating in the ongoing incarnation of Good God Father.

Background

Songwriter, Sean Lewis, inspired by the history of music, as a tradition in the west, decided not to let the dismay of the corporate rat race get him down, so as to swallow up his enthusiasm in to the abysmal void of oblivion, and formed out of the ashen remains of former projects to create Good God Father as an eternal, and ageless image of the ideal human expression.
After releasing a number of records under various other monikers, Sean arrived at Good God Father, after so many other roads had closed in order for providence to finally avail itself.
The project began in the cavernous shadows of Sean’s home studio, building track layers for songs, which are being compiled in to a debut full length release, titled I Pray You, which is still in the process of completion. In the mean while, the back catalog of songs is available for purchase and download from the Bandcamp Page, with various live performance videos featured on their YouTube Channel, as well.

Fact Sheet

Sean learned to play surf rock guitar from his grandfather, at the age of 13, and learned his first drum beat/riff when he was 10. He became thoroughly involved in a well rounded array of arts including video production, writing, acting, directing, painting, drawing, and sewing. All songs are written and recorded by Sean, with the enlisted help of his close friends who’ve put in a great deal of time and energy throughout the years.
He considers Alice In Chains, The Melvins, Faith No More, Type O Negative, Peter Gabriel and the Smashing Pumpkins as his biggest influences in songwriting.
