Ones To Watch: Tom Goss

Published On September 27, 2018 | By Brendon Veevers | Ones To Watch

Location: Los Angeles, USA

Genre: Singer/Songwriter

Tom Goss is an indie singer-songwriter who mixes tender ballads with energetic folk/pop. A prolific writer and performer, he has released seven albums and played a thousand shows across the US, Canada, and Europe to a growing group of dedicated fans.

Tom has been compared to Brett Dennen and Mat Kearney — but with a distinct voice shaped by his identity as a gay man and his unusual history. A college wrestler turned Catholic seminarian turned award-winning musician, Tom weaves his story throughout a performance that moves between intimate love songs and engaging anthems.

Tom’s songs have been heard on ABC, HBO, in several films, and his inventive music videos (Son of a Preacher Man, Breath and Sound, Bears, Click), which have been viewed more than 10-million times. Tom has shared a stage with performers as diverse as Andy Grammer, Martha Wash, Taylor Dane, Steve Grand, Adrianne Gonzalez, Matt Alber, and Catie Curtis, and he enjoys a particularly strong following in the LGBT community.

A native of Kenosha, Wisconsin, Tom went to college in Missouri on a wrestling scholarship with plans to become a schoolteacher. A year of student teaching in Illinois changed his mind, but he still wanted to make a difference in the world — so he decided to become a Catholic priest and moved to Washington DC to enter seminary. Disillusioned by his experiences there, and with a growing awareness that he was gay, Tom found himself in songwriting and performing.

Currently based in Los Angeles, Tom will be touring the US in Spring/Summer 2018 with a brand new multimedia show that incorporates guitar, keyboard, storytelling, and video.
