Girl Named Tom @ Goshen College

In October 2021, in the midst of their winning season on NBC’s The Voice, Caleb ’18, Joshua ’19 and Bekah Liechty, known as Girl Named Tom, sat down with President Stoltzfus before their sold-out performance at Goshen College Music Center’s Sauder Concert Hall to talk about their experience and rise to fame. Read more about Girl Named Tom.


Girl Named Tom’s sound is built on the palpable voice of Bekah Grace and the beautiful sibling harmony with her two brothers, Caleb and Joshua, both Goshen College graduates. While their original repertoire is full of variety, the acoustic instruments and sweet vocal blend put them with acoustic pop / singer-songwriter music. Their style combines the classics (Joni Mitchell; Crosby, Stills & Nash) with artists of today (Taylor Swift, The Wailin’ Jennys, Adrianne Lenker).

During their first year as a band, Bekah, Joshua & Caleb drove their old minivan cross country, playing 67 shows in 27 cities (have fun exploring our photos here!). Before the pandemic ground them to a halt, they had the privilege of playing at The Green Parrot (Key West, FL), Tellus360 (Lancaster, PA), The Laughing Goat (Boulder, CO), Ocean Beach Market (San Diego, CA), camps, churches, and dozens of house shows.
