Tom Goss – 2:20pm

Tom Goss is an LA-based singer-songwriter known for his expertly crafted songs about the joys and struggles of modern love.

A prolific writer and performer, Tom has released seven albums, made dozens of music videos, and played thousands of shows across the US, Canada, and Europe to a growing group of dedicated fans. He has been compared to Ed Sheeran, Mat Kearney, David Gray, and Wye Oak — but with a distinct perspective shaped by his unusual history as a college wrestler turned Catholic seminarian turned gay musician.

Tom’s songs have been heard on ABC, HBO, Disney+, Here TV, and Univision, and his inventive music videos have been viewed more than 20 million times. He enjoys a particularly strong following in the LGBT community — singing about disillusionment, desire, and hope in an intimate yet relatable way — and has shared a stage with performers as diverse as Andy Grammer, Martha Wash, Taylor Dayne, Adrianne Gonzalez, Matt Alber, and Catie Curtis.

Tom was raised in Kenosha, Wisconsin, and went to college in Missouri on a wrestling scholarship with plans to become a schoolteacher. A year of student teaching changed his mind, but he still wanted to make a difference in the world — so he decided, to the surprise of family and friends, to become a Catholic priest, moving to Washington DC to enter seminary. Frustrated by a series of #metoo experiences, Tom found his voice in songwriting and performing. After a decade in DC, he moved to Los Angeles in 2015.

Tom just released a new album, Remember What It Feels Like — a collection of fun, summery pop songs that are a testament to memory and resilience. Check out or @tomgossmusic across social media for upcoming tour dates!
