Remembering Lari Goss

Share

Music fans across the globe are mourning the loss of another giant in the industry. Lari Goss, internationally known orchestrator, producer, songwriter, arranger, and keyboard artist passed away on Saturday afternoon, January 10, 2015.

Lari produced many award winning projects for numerous gospel artists. The Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir, The Cathedrals, Michael English, Ernie Haase & Signature Sound, Anthony Burger, Greater Vision, Christ Church Choir, The Martins, The Hoppers, Jim Brady Trio, The Booth Brothers, The Guardians, Sisters, the Goodmans, Legacy Five, Larnelle Harris, Phil Driscoll, Gaither Vocal Band, The Nelons, Janet Paschal, and many others have been the recipients of distinguished awards partly due to this musical genius.

Not only was this Grammy and multi-Dove Award winner a respected producer and an unparalleled arranger, but he was an accomplished keyboard artist. His style was coined “Goss Sound” in the recording industry, a mix of musical excellence that evoked deep emotion. His music always aimed for the heart and never missed.

His critically acclaimed orchestral arrangements reached far beyond the world of gospel music. He worked with Warner Brothers, Capitol, RCA, and Columbia. Glen Campbell, Ray Price, B.J. Thomas, and the Atlanta Rhythm Section recognized his talent and were honored to have him be part of their projects.

Lari had an impressive list of accolades and accomplishments such as arranging and conducting music for the Grammy Awards, the Peoples Choice Awards, and the world famous London Philharmonic Symphony. His arrangements have been heard on The Tonight Show, Radio City Music Hall, and all over the world. In 2004, he was inducted into the GMA Gospel Music Hall of Fame.

Since 1997, he had served as “artist in residence” at Lee University and mentored many of gospel music’s finest up and coming musicians.

His talent and character took him to the top and kept him there. He had a tremendous gift of networking for philanthropic reasons. He founded the Annual Lari Goss Golf Invitational, a benefit for the Tennessee Baptist Children’s Home.

Lari enjoyed a close relationship with his brother Roni Goss and will be deeply missed by his wife Carolyn, his children, grandchildren, family, and friends.
