Described from an early age as a piano phenom, Goss is recognized as an electrifying entertainer. He is a devotee of blues, 50s rock n’ roll and classic country who started playing piano as a toddler, after watching his father play and read music. His first song was “Sea Cruise,” for which he learned the melody with his right hand one day, and a left hand accompaniment the next – when he was just 4 years old.
He took piano lessons starting in second grade, but never really liked them and “churned through teachers like butter.” Once he had the melody memorized, he would “fancy it up” and play it his own way. He recorded several instrumental CDs before he started singing, at the age of 16. His most recent recording is “Brady Goss: I’m With the Band.”
“Brady is one of the rare gems in the world of music. He’s soulful, charming, energetic, high-spirited, captivating and commands his performances like a seasoned pro,” said Grammy nominee Ellen Whyte.
Goss cites Jerry Lee Lewis, Hank Williams, Eric Clapton, The Eagles, Stevie Ray Vaughan, and John Mayer as his major influences, but has an improvisational style all his own. He’s taken it all over the west, with a steady schedule of lounge, fair, festival and concert gigs. Among his performing credentials is the Bite of Oregon, held annually in Tom McCall Waterfront Park, and the Oregon State Fair.
