Gavin Goszka

Ohio native Gavin Goszka has been writing, recording, and performing music since age 17, both as a solo artist and as one half of the horror soundscape outfit Midnight Syndicate. His fascination with anime music began in 2008, and the following year, he began performing acoustic renditions of popular anime songs at conventions throughout the Eastern half of the country. 2010 saw the release of Subtle Inversion's Kaleidoscope, an album of entirely original English-language songs featuring vocaloid Megurine Luka. In 2014, Gavin's growing anime accessories business (Home Circle Media) began to demand more time and attention and he reluctantly decided to hang up his performer's hat for a while in order to focus on vending.

Gavin's music has been featured in theme parks and haunted attractions across the country, including Universal Orlando's Halloween Horror Nights and Cedar Point's HalloWeekends. Since 2014, Midnight Syndicate has also been bringing its series of acclaimed live shows to the stage of Cedar Point's iconic Jack Aldrich theater during HalloWeekends.

Gavin is thrilled to be making his return as a solo performer at this year's Naka-Kon, and will be bringing a new set of completely revamped, not-so-acoustic renditions of familiar favorites alongside lesser known anime music gems!
