Tom Goss

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 to dedicated fans. 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’s songs have been heard on ABC, HBO and Univision, and his inventive music videos have been viewed more than 12 million times. He 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.

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’s latest album, Territories, was written over the course of a year of separate travels with his husband and a newly found lover. Slated for release in Fall 2019, it 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.

 

Ryan Cassata

With over 600 performances nationwide and internationally and seven original and critically-acclaimed musical albums, Ryan is proud to be recognized as the first openly-trans performer at the Vans Warped Tour, in addition to featured performances at Jazz at Lincoln Center, The Oregon Shakespeare Festival’s Green Show, Global Pride and the world’s biggest pride festivals, and SXSW in Austin, Texas. Praised by The Advocate Magazine- Ryan has been praised as a “Transgender singing sensation.” Paper Magazine has also included Ryan on their “50 LGBTQ Musicians You Should Prioritize” list, and LOGO’s New Now Next included Ryan on the “9 Trans Musicians You Need To Get Into” list. Billboard Magazine has referred to Ryan as a “true force in the industry,” honoring him as one of the esteemed “11 Transgender & Non-Binary Musicians You Need to Know” while premiering his award-winning music video “Daughter,” garnering over 1M views on Youtube and 1M Streams on Spotify. Ryan’s music has been featured on Sirius XM Radio, BBC Radio 4 and various other broadcast channels worldwide. Ryan Cassata is the proud recipient of The ASCAP Foundation 2019 Mariana and Paul Williams “Sunlight of the Spirit” award, presented to an individual considered exemplary in recovery and music creativity for his song, “Jupiter.”

 

de ROCHE

A lover of adventurous and voracious pop, de ROCHE mines emotional depths for rock-solid songs that range from soulful electronica to hot folk. A new solo project from drummer, keyboardist, and singer Liz DeRoche, it’s the culmination of two decades in the music industry as a band member, producer, studio musician, teaching artist, and record label manager.

As de ROCHE, Liz mixes synthy smoothness with a raw emotionality to create an idiosyncratic style that she bravely embraces. She serves up tender yet strong songs based on real heartache and revelations.
