Singer/songwriter Tom Goss is at his best when it’s just him and the guitar, soulfully telling stories of love and loss. On his forthcoming album, Lost Songs and Underdogs, he tenderly professes his love for his husband Mike (at left with Goss, right) in the ballad “I Do.”
Goss brings it down a notch with “Pills and Chalk,” a cautionary tale about a dalliance with suicide in his youth. But rather than depressing, it simply rounds out the story of his life, woven into all his work masterfully.
Goss is about to depart his home base, Washington, DC, for a nationwide tour that stretches from Florida to Seattle and stops between. Check out his schedule and see if he’ll be visiting a coffee house near you: Trust us, his gentle, heartwarming tunes are a lovely departure from the deafening sound and fury of everyday life.
Tom sings, our good friend Sherry Vine stops by with friend Bianca del Rio, and the boys discuss all the big pop culture and gay news of the week on the latest GayCities/Queerty-sponsored Swish Edition comedy and interview talk show. Best of all? It’s free.
