PODCAST – #65 Tom Richardson (Australian folk singer/songwriter).

CLICK HERE to listen to the podcast interview in full via iTunes.

Tom Richardson is a sublime Australian acoustic and blues singer/songwriter, who’s had his music featured on Rip Curl surfing documentaries, played shows & festivals in 15 different countries around the planet and has just dropped his brand new ‘Pockets’ EP, which he’s going to be touring around Australia, Canada and Europe in 2016.

Tom and I met 5.5 years ago when he joined the line-up for the 1st ever Hot & Delicious: Rocks The Planet! project (then called Hot & Delicious Records), ‘Change Australia, Change The World’, an event held in the iconic Gershwin Room at The Esplanade Hotel in St Kilda (Melbourne, Australia) to raise awareness for Oxfam Australia’s involvement for Close The Gap.

Today’swonderful, ranging & inspiring chats cover ambition and travelling the world as a solo musician since the age of 21, living in Bali and recording an EP in the middle of the jungle in Bali with crickets, geckos, motorbikes and Jetstar’s Denpaser flight as backing vocals, finding a life partner in Canada & the invaluable life lessons they teach each other,  his first ever memory as a child, going into the surf with his dad and the feelings of pure exhilaration & joy that surfing brings, coming into your own as a person, creator and performer by not being afraid to be open & honest with yourself and others, which is when you feel truly happy.

I just get so excited that I’m able to support good people in their ambitious pursuits & doubly so when they produce such magical music & are so damn inspiring!

From the streets of Fitzroy to fine shores of Canada, blues & roots rockers Jungal are hitting the studio!

Posted on Updated on


From the streets of Fitzroy to the fine shores of Canada, blues & roots rockers Jungal are hitting the studio!

Hailing from country Victoria, Jungalwalla sister (Leisha and Jessie) & adopted sibling Vic typify the hard-working Australian indie rock band. With punters spoilt for music choice in this country, emerging artists have to diversify, make their own way and create new opportunities off their own back. Jungal have toured Australia 8 times and have built quite a following touring the Canadian summer festival circuit 3 times in the past few years.

Not shy of the camera, a cheeky beer and wicked banter, the all-girl trio created this cute little vid to drive crowd-sourced funding to record their 2nd studio album before they jet off to North America for tour #4.

Jungal are 100% independent, self-funded & self-managed band.

Watch the vids, download free tunes off triple j Unearthed, share the ♥ & get involved!
