About Steve Goodman
Steve Goodman is a revered Singer-Songwriter who died of leukemia in 1984 at the age of 36. He wrote songs that could be clever and heartbreakingly affecting at the same time. Like many Singer-Songwriters that came of age in the late 1960s and early '70s, he was an able acoustic guitar player whose style was informed by the folk/blues renaissance of the early '60s. Goodman's songs were covered by such artists as Jimmy Buffett, Bonnie Raitt, John Denver, and most notably, Arlo Guthrie, who had a hit with the now-standard "City of New Orleans."
