About the event

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 17 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.

Bright Light Bright Light

Bright Light Bright Light is Welsh pop artist, producer & DJ Rod Thomas who has called NYC his home for ten years. He has collaborated and toured with Sir Elton John, Erasure and Scissor Sisters to name just a few artists, and just before COVID toured Europe opening for the legendary Cher. His 4 studio albums have won praise from critics and contemporaries alike, particularly 2020’s #1 UK Dance album ‘Fun City’ which featured 12 LGBTQ+ artists including Justin Vivian Bond, Sam Sparro and Andy Bell of Erasure. His shows are colourful, fun and full of nods to his favourite 80s and 90s cinema and pop culture which inspire his music. Called “Working Girl-era realness” by Rolling Stone, he is an artist that aims to bring joy to the world with a little heartache along the way.


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 (The Pushovers, Cane & The Sticks), 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. With 2021’s release of Big Let Down, she serves up tender yet strong songs based on real heartache and other revelations from a wanderlustful life. 

“It’s the emotional impact I’m looking for,” says Liz. “I want to make meaningful music that people will take very personally.”
