Pelham Goddardís years of hard work and extraordinary accomplishments have been recognized by the Trinidad & Tobago government with Pelham Goddard receiving one of the twin-island republicís highest awards, the Hummingbird Silver Medal, along with many others including the Sunshine Award for arranging and producing. Pelham Goddard continues to brew up a storm of hits and arrangements in his studio, as resident arranger for Exodus Steel Orchestra and abroad.

In 1972 put his mark on the National Lottery 3rd World Steel Orchestraís hits like Gold and American Patrol, and the results sated on the charts for weeks, and also went over well in North America.

The name Pelham Goddard can be found in numerous album credits of musical heavyweights such as the late Ras Shorty I (formerly known as Lord Shorty) and other calypso legends like Mighty Shadow, Mighty Sparrow, Calypso Rose, Super Blue, Singing Francine and also Charlieís Roots.  In his years he has also combined his talents with those of Ed Watson and the late Art de Couteau.

In 1986 Pelham arranged David Rudderís music, giving Rudder the crown for every calypso competition he entered. Pelham is the only musician in history whose arrangements won thirteen ĎRoad Marches.í

For 2012, he has penned a monumental tribute to Exodus Steel Orchestraís beloved matriarch and drill master, the late Dr. Pat Bishop who passed away in 2011. 3 Canal wrote the lyrics and performs the song, Aunty Pat. It is Exodus's Panorama selection for 2012 - arranged, naturally,  by Pelham.
