Jason Myles Goss, MT Press

Jason Myles Goss fourth album "Radio Dial" out June 17th, 2012.

 Massachusetts native, Jason Myles Goss, is gearing up for the release of his fourth album, "Radio Dial," out on June 17th, 2012. In his newest single, Black Lights, Jason's expert storytelling takes center in what is the most stirring and cinematic song on the record -- a gritty tale in the vein of Aimee Mann's "The Forgotten Arm," it's the story of a young fighter struggling to make a name for himself, and the punishment he endures in a vainglorious attempt to be somebody. It's an arresting comparison between the realities of both a fighter and an artist, how each is a performer at the mercy of their audience, and how each works tirelessly, and mostly in solitude at something which culminates in a public spectacle (ring vs. stage). Here we find Jason's gravelly vocal propelling the story over a haunting, stripped-down instrumentation, effectively layered, to evoke the loneliness and desperation of his character.

There are several themes throughout "Radio Dial", but the most prominent is that of struggle - the struggle to fight for things that you love, the struggle to find a place in the world, and the struggle that emerges when death injects meaning into the layers of your life. It's easy to see the ways in which these struggles have helped Goss grow, as an individual and a songwriter, discontent with making music for the sake of staying in a one-genre box he strove to make an album that resonated with the things he loves most about music - a good story and a memorable melody.
