New album released on Spotify, iTunes and Amazon  Rave reviews already coming in for the new Disconnection Section album which includes 10 new compositions and 11 remixes from my previous releases.  Expect colourful orchestration, intriguing time-signatures and homages to some of my favourite musicians, like Thelonious Monk, Brian Wilson, John Cage,

Oliver Messiaen, Jimi Hendrix,  Sandy Denny and Bela Fleck.  I get to play lots of guitar, banjo,

ukelele and bass and some brilliant guest musicians feature on drums, saxes, flute, clarinet and

vocals. Find out more and hear tracks here


New recordings with Ian Ellis

Great to create new tracks with one of the UK's finest tenor sax players - here are rough mixes of  "Deciduous" and "Smoke and Mirrors" which I played at Southern Jazz Guitar Society!


Latest media coverage  "Stephen Godsall and his radiophonic guitar stretch the boundaries.  Unusual melodies supported by edgy harmonies make for a modern yet highly accessible sound.  His fantastic compositional range, combined with formidable skills in sound editing and manipulation, give a fresh and satisfying take and on what is dismissively termed modern jazz."
