Ray & Nancy Goudie, founders of New Generation Music, have been friends of Pioneer for many years. Recently, they have connected into the network as Associate Members. We are delighted to be able to partner with them as they seek to influence the world of media and the arts.
Here is a bit more about them.
New Generation Music is a vibrant community of artists who are passionate about art and life. Filled with creativity, we produce music, artists, dancers, musicians, artist training courses, innovative conferences, and much more. As artisans, we seek to bring beauty, excellence, and influence to today’s music culture. We help transform people and communities through creativity infused with Christian faith and values.
NGM was born out of a band called Heartbeat which started in 1980. Heartbeat wrote songs like Come On And Celebrate, Heal Our Nation and Tears From Heaven, which reached 32 in the BBC pop charts. They travelled widely, performing in schools, universities, churches, prisons and festivals. In 1989 they started NGM as the work was quickly expanding, and in 1991 Heartbeat finished.
We now have around 60 creatives based at the impressive Caedmon Complex in Thornbury.
