Goyte: Mr. "Somebody That I Used to Know" is definitely worth knowing

Research has shown that music has a profound effect on your body and psyche. In fact, there’s a growing field of health care known as music therapy, which uses music to heal.  Goyte is perfect therapy!

Taking the stage after opening acts Jonti and Missy Higgins, Goyte capitalized on the opportunity to connect with his passionate fans in the intimate setting of Chastain Park
Amphitheater on Friday, October 5th.  The Australian 
singer/songwriter delighted the crowd with a well-paced, set that was accompanied by wonderful animations … Ahhh, soothing therapy for the eyes, ears, and of course, the soul.

Highlights included “Easy Way Out,” which was coupled with a daring animated short featuring a distraught drug abuser running toward a futuristic metropolis, and “Thank You For Your Time,” featuring a retro-inspired animation of ladies dressed as stewardesses from the 1960’s.

To merely call Gotye’s performance a concert does not do him justice–this was an all-out sensory experience. So much so, that near the end of the show, Goyte invited the audience to gather in front of the stage, the crowd rushed in to be closer to the energy, and Goyte turned the Chastain into a dancing-room-only party.

If you have the opportunity, I highly recommend seeing Goyte, as he is just what the doctor ordered!
