A native of Hopedale, MA, Jason Myles Goss has been recording since 2003 when he released his first album Long Way Down and was selected as a finalist in the first ever Newport Folk Festival Songwriters’ Contest. Since then, he has spent his time touring across the country and releasing subsequent albums on his own dime before settling down long enough to make Radio Dial, his fourth independent record and first self-produced effort. With a hard-worn, no-shortcuts work ethic, and with years of touring behind him, Jason has continued to find a way, building a steady following, one song, one show, and one fan at a time, and becoming one of the most buzzed-about artists in both the New York City and Boston music scenes.
For the Sake of the Song: A Tribute to Townes Van Zandt
“Townes Van Zandt is the best songwriter in the whole world and I’ll stand on Bob Dylan‘s coffee table in my cowboy boots and say that.” – Steve Earle
An American troubadour, Townes Van Zandt’s songs are considered standards of the songwriter-singer-genre. His work has been covered by such notable and varied musicians as Bob Dylan, Norah Jones, Lyle Lovett, Steve Earle, Cowboy Junkies, Andrew Bird, Robert Plant, Alison Krauss, Gillian Welch, Laura Marling, The Avett Brothers, and Devendra Banhart.
To honor what would be Townes Van Zandt’s 70th birthday, Arts Brookfield will present free lunchtime concerts at One New York Plaza and the Grace Building Plaza showcasing some of the country’s finest singer-songwriters performing music inspired by or written by Van Zandt.
