Showtime Goma (A Sunny Day In Glasgow’s Jen Goma) Shares “Smiley Face” Album Stream

Showtime Goma, the solo pop project of A Sunny Day In Glasgow’s Jen Goma, has shared an advance stream of her debut album Smiley Face. The album is due out this Friday, June 16 and is available for pre-order here.


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 of 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.
