I first met Tom Richardson at one of Melbourne’s favourite little indie bars, Section 8, where he was performing solo with Melbourne-based Kiwis, Bonjah.
Immediately fell in love his beautiful sound and shortly after Tom joined the bill for Hot & Delicious Group‘s inaugural event at iconic Melbourne venue, The Esplanade Hotel’s Gershwin Room, to help raise awareness for Oxfam Australia‘s involvement with Close the Gap.
After spending 2012 touring 14 different countries, Tom Richardson prepares once again to take his infectious personality and contagious melodies across the globe. Single-handedly entertaining audiences at major Canadian festivals, small bars in Europe and highland village tribes in Fiji, Tom heads into 2013 with new solo show, a large swag of songs and a guitar case full of stories.
Tom’s latest release “Song for Jens” is two years in the making & inspired by a German lady who contacted Tom who lost her son when he was just 21 years old. She asked if Tom could write a song to celebrate the life of her son and this beautiful little track is the result. Proud to call this guy our friend.
