w/ singer-songwriter Tom Goss

Dennis welcomes singer-songwriter and YouTube sensation Tom Goss to the breakfast nook just two weeks into Tom's relocation to L.A. from Washington D.C.  They discuss what it's like to be an independent musician in today's music business; what the day-to-day is like, what's great about it, what sucks and how you make money at it.  Tom shares inside scoop about his viral music video "Bears," his Twitter interactions with Taylor Swift and Iggy Azalea and the guy who offered to give him $10,000 to make a music video....but it had to be about a very specific subject.  Also on the agenda: Tom's stint as a Starbucks barrista, how he got good at rapping, what it's like to lay naked in front of a camera for 80 minutes without moving while lip-syncing and getting your body painted.  Learn more at www.tomgossmusic.com
