TOM GOSS is a guitar toting, power-pop prodigy hailing from Washington, DC. While his radio-ready music is often compared to acoustic-pop peers such as Jason Mraz and Jack Johnson, it is Goss’ earnest and thoughtful lyrics that have propelled him to serious singer/songwriter status. It is no wonder then that Goss’ reputation and following has grown so fast.Goss’ music has been featured on ABC and HBO; his videos have topped the charts on MTV’s LOGO, and he has gained honors such as “Best Musician” by “The Washington Blade” two years running. Goss’ music videos, such as “Lover,” “Bears,” and “Make Believe,” have been an integral part of his success, having racked up millions of views worldwide. Goss has built that audience and his enormous social media following organically, playing shows in every major city in America as well as to international audiences.Goss has built a reputation as an activist and spokesperson for the LGBTQ community. His four albums have allowed him to tell his unique story (Goss had once set his sights on becoming a priest) and tackle issues such as DADT and marriage equality. His music video for “Lover,” tells the story of a soldier killed in Afghanistan while his husband waits at home. The video garnered heavy rotation on MTV’s LOGO and stars servicemen who were discharged under the previous “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy.

In his three previous albums Goss has connected with fans through his deeply personal, heartfelt songs set to lush orchestration and acoustic guitars. For his newest release, Wait (Spring 2014), Goss has upped the ante musically, featuring a full band of top-notch musical veterans, including Liz DeRoche (Cane and the Sticks/The Pushovers). While the lyrical content remains charming and intimate, the addition of a band adds a new dimension of immediacy while packing an emotional punch.
