Playing original, raw, atmospheric alt-pop, Gwen and the Good Thing mixes soul-stirring vocal harmonies with euphoric brass. Expect anthemic choruses, infectious rhythms and uplifting guitars.
Picked to play the BBC Introducing Stage at Glastonbury 2016, the 6-piece Milton Keynes-based band specialises in dynamic and unique songs – Gwen’s soaring vocals interlocking with a fresh musical palette of trombone, clarinet, trumpet, sax and synth.
A Kickstarter crowd-funded success story (receiving both 'New and Noteworthy' and 'Pick of the Day' accolades), their debut single ‘See My Girl’ was BBC Introducing Track Of The Week on BBC 3 Counties Radio and picked for both the Unsigned Guide’s Spotlight blog and for Best of British Unsigned.
Following the success of their BBC Introducing Glastonbury set, the band has received BBC Radio 1 airplay from the inimitable Huw Stephens. 2017 will see the band release a series of much-anticipated singles. Check out the lyric video for their first release, Temper, on YouTube now.

"The bright, breezy and addictive alternative pop of 6 piece Gwen and the Good Thing is guaranteed to be on permanent rotation in your head after just one listen. Our chosen track ‘See My Girl’ was written about all the amazing women in Gwen’s life, and what a wonderful way to pay tribute to them."
