Tom Goss is a veteran singer-songwriter who blends a soulful voice and atmospheric soundscapes in expertly crafted songs about the joys and struggles of modern love.
A prolific writer and performer, Tom has released seven albums and played thousands of shows across the US, Canada, and Europe. He has been compared to Twin Shadow, Mat Kearney and Wye Oak -- but with a distinct perspective shaped by his unusual history. A college wrestler turned Catholic seminarian turned polyamorous gay troubadour, Tom sings about disillusionment, desire, and hope in an intimate yet relatable way.
Tom was raised in 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 study. Frustrated by a series of #metoo experiences, Tom found his voice, and healing in his music.
Tom's latest album, Territories, was written over the course of a year of separate travels with his husband and a newly found lover. Territories tells the complex story of a changing marriage and a new relationship through songs named after the places that inspired them. It's a stunning evolution of substance and style for a proven performer who has embarked on a thrilling new journey.
