Dr Goodvibe play an eclectic mix of soulful folk, blues and roots, funk and a touch of jazz. Singer songwriter, Edu Dixon-Valk, combines with the talents of virtuoso chromatic harmonica player, Christian Marsh, to deliver upbeat, uplifting music. Over the last 17 years they have recorded 3 CD's and won many awards!

Edu is a unique and diverse singer songwriter whose philosophical and often satirical commentary on life openly elucidates his heart. The eternal optimist, EDU's music is raw and honest and uplifting, with comparisons as diverse as David Gray, Jack Johnson, Donavon Frankenreiter, ,Pete Murray, Lou Reed and JJ Cale – just to name a few. Nominated for Best Male vocalist in 2004, ABC Newcastle Music Awards.

Christian’s playing will open your mind to the versatility of the harmonica. He has won three national Hohner "Gold Harmonica” awards and has released two of his own CD's and performed as a guest artist on thirty more. He has distilled his unique sound from this wide experience. Christian’s trademark is a particularly pure and sweet tone, which he weaves through even the simplest of melodies to create lively and complex musical arrangements. He has played every idiom, from country and blues to jazz and classical, playing with many of the top artists in the music industry.
