Elaine I loved the album, but this last song made me stop and.....cry...and cry...and cry....
I believe we need an artist that still see's what lives beneath us all.
Love you Jen Goma.
You are an amazing singer and song writer. Favorite track: Secret NRG.

Nick Ripley Definitely stands on it's own. Only toward the end of my first listen, but this is a record I can imagine going back to many times, and hearing new things with each return. Favorite track: Big Disaster.

about

Smiley Face is the debut album by Showtime Goma, the first solo outing from performer and writer, Jen Goma. Whether leading A Sunny Day in Glasgow or collaborating with musicians and artists - including Deerhoof, The Pains of Being Pure at Heart, Jherek Bischoff, Ice Choir and Roman à Clef- chances are, she's performing in your home town tonight. Chances are, Jen is standing behind you right now. Smiley Face is a record forged in these same fires of collaboration — bolstered by Deerhoof’s heavy hitter Greg Saunier, plus appearances by composer Shahzad Ismaily (Laurie Anderson, Tom Waits), and an assortment Goma’s ASDiG pals.
Smiley Face sounds like a labor of love (because it is). It’s DIY POP music built to stir and inspire. The record is an invitation, an invocation — to joy, anger, and catharsis in a time when apathy is not an option. Goma's voice is the guiding light — forceful and flexing through 10 dance pop parables of freedom, time, and irreverence. Smiley Face’s anthems are defiantly optimistic in an era of carefully constructed cynicism. A light record with a dark sense of humor, brimming with hope and energy. It wants to take care of you.
