From The Goodly Beggars
"The Goodly Beggars are making honest folk music that feels fresh and genuine. It's the kind of music that reveals itself in layers and has something to fresh to offer each listen." - Ear to the Ground Music. The Goodly Beggars formed in 2009 when childhood friends Charles and Philip ended up at the same college and began writing and playing music together.
In 2011 they had the chance to record their songs, most in a single take to preserve the raw, live energy. And somewhere in between the sandwich runs and the midnight sessions in which you happen to run into an entire chorus of friends who would sound great for "Moss Cathedrals" Chew the Pages was born, and promptly given away on Noisetrade.
After a few years in separate states they are back in D.C. and recently had a new song featured by the Nashville media group Amplify Entertainment: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2mME9gduEq8
