"Whether its helping recovering addicts, impacting how the music conducts business with its artists, or promoting organizations that I believe in - at the end of the day my goal is to use my music for the greater good."

About Kevin Blake Goodwin (aka Blake Goodwin)

Kevin (Blake) Goodwin is a hybrid electric and acoustic guitar player embracing both technical and fingerstyle progressive guitar skills.  The Conway, Arkansas native won the  2015 Canadian Fingerstyle Guitar Competition, an international acoustic guitar competition held annually in Canada. Since winning the competition, he has used his music platform to advocate for causes including services for disabled veterans, expanding awareness of addiction recovery,  and increasing opportunities for musicians in the music industry.  In 2016, he founded FRETMONKEY RECORDS, an international guitar community whose mission is to create career-changing opportunities for musicians across the globe. He went on to win the 2016 (Acoustic), 2017 (Electric), and 2018 (Acoustic) Guitar Wars Competition in San Antonio (Texas), the longest-running guitar competition in America.  In addition to being a musician, he is an audio engineer,  producer, and owner of  FRETMONKEY RECORDS Studio.  His electric and acoustic music is a blend of jazz, metal, and rock melodies coupled with technical and percussive fingerstyle guitar techniques. He has been described as the “21st Century Guitar Man” possessing “outrageous skills.”
