Tom Goss is an indie singer-songwriter who mixes tender ballads with folk/pop. A prolific writer and performer, he has released seven albums and played thousands of shows across the US, Canada, and Europe to his 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 powerhouse performance that moves between touching love songs and high-energy anthems.
Tom's songs have been heard on ABC, HBO, Disney+, and in several films, and his inventive music videos (Son of a Preacher Man, Breath and Sound, Bears, Click), have been viewed more than 18 million times. Tom has shared a stage with performers as diverse as Andy Grammer, Martha Wash, Taylor Dane, 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 music and began a career as a touring performer.
Tom's latest album, Territories, tells the complex story of a changing marriage 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.
