Tom Goss: “La Bufadora”

Contemporary pop artist Tom Goss releases eye-opening video “La Bufadora” featuring “Mean Girls” Actor Daniel Franzese to bring awareness about LGBTQ domestic violence in recognition of National Domestic Violence Awareness Month.

Singer-songwriter Tom Goss has released an enlightening new music video for his single, “La Bufadora.” It tells the story of an abusive relationship, highlighting the reality of domestic violence within the LGBTQ community. “La Bufadora” is now available to download and stream across all digital media platforms worldwide. Proceeds from the song and video will be donated to the National Domestic Violence Hotline and the Los Angeles LGBT Center.

“La Bufadora” was inspired by the patterns of calm and emotional turmoil in Goss’ relationship with his husband. “I’ve spent the majority of my career talking about the most beautiful aspects of my love and marriage. I wrote ‘La Bufadora’ after a very sad trip to Mexico, which included a lot of fighting, crying, breaking, and healing,” Goss explains. “I wanted to speak to our longing and our efforts to stay connected and move forward, regardless of the imperfections.”

Co-written and produced by Ian Carmichael, “La Bufadora” represents the way that Goss fights for his marriage through tough times. “As the uplifting bridge rises from the heaviness of the chorus, I sing about how we can choose to create the world we live in… The truth is, we have the power to turn all of our sadness into positivity. It’s not easy, and we aren’t required to do it, but it is beautiful when it happens.”

For the video, Goss decided to fictionalize and exaggerate the theme of conflict in order to highlight the issue of domestic abuse in LGBTQ community–just in time for National Domestic Violence Awareness Month in October. Statistics show that within the LGBTQ community, intimate partner violence occurs at a rate equal to or even higher than that of the heterosexual community.

Filmed in an abandoned condo development in Baja California, and at La Bufadora itself (an ocean blowhole just south of Ensenada), the video stars Daniel Franzese (Mean Girls) and was directed by Michael Serrato. Goss also produced a Spanish-language version of the song and video since it is set in Mexico.

Goss was raised in Kenosha, Wisconsin. He went to college in Missouri on a wrestling scholarship and planned to be a schoolteacher until making a surprise decision to become a Catholic priest. Frustrated by a series of #MeToo experiences in the seminary, Goss began to discover his voice in songwriting and performing. His songs have been heard on ABC, HBO, and Univision, and his inventive music videos have been viewed more than 12 million times.
