The Old Church Presents Tom Goss :: Strange & The Familiars
All Ages
Tickets: brownpapertickets.com

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 more than a thousand shows across the US, Canada, and Europe to a growing group of 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, in several films, and his inventive music videos (Son of a Preacher Man, Breath and Sound, Bears, Click), which have been viewed more than seven million times. Tom has shared a stage with performers as diverse as Andy Grammer, Martha Wash, Taylor Dane, Steve Grand, 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.

Currently based in Los Angeles, Tom will be touring the US in Spring/Summer 2018 with a brand new multimedia show that incorporates guitar, storytelling, and video.

“Moving and incredible” – The Huffington Post

Strange & the Familiars weaves otherworldly stories into acoustic soul sounds. With humor and lyrical subtlety, Stephanie Strange invites you to pull up a chair to enjoy these moody tales. Joined by Timothy Robert Karplus on guitar and Julio Appling on stand up bass, Strange & the Familiars will transport you.
Strange & the Familiars released their first EP, Pretty Deadly in 2016.
