Bio

Jason Myles Goss is a singer-songwriter and musician hailing from Massachusetts who now calls New York City home. Over the years, Goss has built a small, grassroots following the old fashioned way—by making records on his own dime and by playing any stage that would have him. 

With a distinctive voice and a gift for storytelling, his music has garnered millions of streams on Spotify, with his song hospital shirt alone receiving 9 million plays (as well as being covered in Norwegian).

Jason has toured throughout the U.S. (predominantly focused on the east coast) and has supported some of the finest artists working today, such as: Shovels & Rope, Anais Mitchell, Watchhouse (formerly Mandolin Orange), Lori Mckenna and Peter Bradley Adams, among others. 

Goss co-produced Misfit, his latest EP (2023), with engineer and multi-instrumentalist Joel Arnow at his studio in Hastings-on-Hudson, NY. In addition to Arnow, Misfit features contributions from an impressive roster of musicians, Michael Bellar (Amos Lee, Jump Little Children), Austin Nevins (Anais Mitchell, Josh Ritter), Craig Akin (Red Molly, Vance Gilbert), JP Ruggieri (The Wood Brothers, Seth Walker) and Dietrich Strause (Rose Cousins, Kris Delmhorst).

Goss spent his childhood in Hopedale, MA, a small mill town located between Worcester and Boston. His first foray into show business was playing at a bar located across from an airport landing strip.

PRESS QUOTES

"earnest lyrics and storytelling" - Paste Magazine

"Jason Myles Goss is the kind of musician I want to keep tabs on. I'll keep tabs on him because he's a litmus test for what should remain constant in music against the fizzling fads and temporary trends. He's a storyteller, a songwriter, and a creator—these are occupations that don't go out of style and they don't fade away" - WXPN (Philadelphia)

"Goss is part of the same continuum of literate, acoustic-driven singer-songwriters that includes not only Josh Ritter, but also Paul Simon, Jackson Browne, and Lucinda Williams." - Dave Lifton, PopDose

"Goss is a thinking person's songwriter. He puts out these thoughts in a voice that's fragile one moment and like a wounded bird falling from the sky the next." - Valley Advocate (Northampton, MA)
