Folkadelphia Session: Jason Myles Goss

Jason Myles Goss is the kind of musician that I want to keep tabs on. His songs — well, you just relate to them — the honesty, the compassion, the work he’s put into them and into his craft, into his artistry. It’s simply good, like chicken soup is good, like the morning light is good. 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. After the age of sheen, of slick, of fabrication, what will be left standing is the realness of the salt of life. What will be left standing is Jason Myles Goss, just being who he is, writing what he knows, and sharing his thoughts and melodies with us.

Jason Myles Goss was kind enough to stop into the WXPN Studios on January 6th, 2013 the morning after his show in Newtown Square, PA at Burlap & Bean Coffee. He recently released the album Radio Dial. Enjoy the results of the visit in this latest Folkadelphia Session.
