about

Steady Breather Athens, Tennessee

Steady Breather is a solo project from multi-instrumentalist and Tennessean Samuel Goodman, who composes Alt-country and Folky originals, managing catchy, timeless hooks. His latest single “Nothin' But Good” has received great compliment, and is considered to be his “musical niche” coming to light. All the instruments heard in any Steady Breather song to date have been played by the one man. ... more

Track Name: Vibrant Invisible
Vibrant Invisible
If we all glow vibrant colors, vibrant and invisible
What kind of paranormal shade do we create when we’re so close it is tangible?
All at once these thoughts come flowing back but this time I’m hearing myself speak them to you.
It all must sound so very strange to hear this from your point of view

So why are you trembling, is it something in this air?
The conversation is dwindling, but you’re still here.
Why are you turning red? Maybe something right was said.
So light up another one just to occupy your hands

Talk to me of your life, determine our parallels.
I hear no footsteps in the hall, but morning is in the stairwell
And I would compliment your careful outfit, if its appeal held one candle to you.
And I would compliment appealing you, if only you would feed me just one excuse

So why are you trembling, is it something in this air?
The conversation is dwindling, but you’re still here.
Why are you turning red? Maybe something right was said.
So light up another one just to occupy your hands
Track Name: Which Way
Which Way
Which way do you take the train? Does it rattle the glass on my window pain?
Does it pass me by in the middle of the night with the white smoke rising and one headlight?
With that one headlight, with the one headlight

How loud does the whistle blow? Does it wake me from sleeping and dreaming of you?
Will I know what time, what time you go, will I sleep through the night thinking you were true?
Thinking you were true, thinking you were true

Oh, my dreams, so bitter, so sweet.
They know who leaves me desperate for more sleep as soon as I wake up.

How bright is it when the sun does rise? Does it creep through the curtains and wake my eyes?
Does it warm the glass on the window pain? Will you think good things when you think my name?
When you think my name, when you think my name

Oh, my dreams, so bitter, so sweet.
They know who leaves me desperate for more sleep as soon as I wake up.
Track Name: Well On My Way
Well On My Way
Well the timing is right, and that future looks so bright
In contrast to the past, I know this heartache won’t last
Well that road is open, with so many things I’m hopin’
I will find on the other side, I know that future is bright

So if you think that you might miss me
Don’t be afraid, reach out and kiss me
Because now any day, I’ll be well on my way
I’ll be well on my way

So dry that little tear, and let me whisper in your ear
Now baby I hope it won’t be long before I forget your name altogether
So Kansas City won’t you clean up my brain
I am set to forget the worst of all that fucking pain

And I’ll be smiling to the sun when I see him on that open road
And I’ll be singing on the run, with the lightest load
And I will find a new place to lay my head
And I will find my warmth in someone else’s bed instead
Track Name: Any Hurry
Any Hurry
And so to still be friends, just not to hold your hand
But to handle that much tension, well, I just don’t think I can
But as I recall that was the original plan
Slowly build up something strong, less likely to meet a young end

Oh darling, I wasn’t in any hurry, no
Oh darling, there’s no need for all this worry
And I’m just saying that I could take my time with you, you could take your time with me
And, darling, see where that takes us
Oh darling, I’m feeling like it’s early

Still I understand how romance makes you sad
So take some time, just take some time, to just go on and hold yourself for awhile
But, in the meantime I won’t lie, I’ll miss swimming through both your eyes
I know they’re deep and dangerous waters
But, I am confident I can hold my breath for longer

Rest assured, I’m not that naïve, as to think you’d come back to me
Track Name: Greater Joy
Greater Joy
If I’m not around when you first touch the ground
If I’m not around, it doesn’t mean that I don’t care
It probably just means I don’t know that you’re there

And if you grow up in the city, don’t go chasing something pretty
And if you grow up in the country, why don’t you stay there for awhile

If you’re best friend is a girl, then you should marry her, my boy
Because there’s no one in the world that’ll bring you greater joy
Don’t bear the pain of the world, or money’s poisoned hooks
And don’t fall in love with a girl because you like the way she looks

And if you think about moving away, don’t think about Saint Louis or L.A.
And little junior one, if you make music too, my son
Well don’t let them make you sign your own name in blood
Ask for nothing but forgiveness, give everything but pain
As you’ll find that what you give away determines what you’ll gain
