Gig Artist: 
Start and Finish Date/Time:

Description: 

Tom’s music launches from a raw, earnest space into worlds of sonic colour and electronically-augmented atmospheres. He sings lyrics and wordless music, evoking contemporary jazz improvisation, extended vocal techniques, and live electronic looping and effects processing. His music ponders the nature of self and existence.
Tom's debut studio album, Aspirations, was released in July 2014. Over $9,000 of funding was contributed by fans and supporters through the crowdfunding platform Pozible. The album transcends its acoustic jazz instrumentation into fragments of electronica, pop, world music and folk. Tom’s voice combines warmth and intimacy with a technique and range that soars to places of intrigue, exhilaration and connection.
Tom graduated from the Victorian College of the Arts with a Bachelor of Music Performance (Honours) in Jazz Improvisation in 2010. In 2013 he was invited to study a Master of Jazz (Voice) at the Manhattan School of Music in New York City. As a unique multi-genre artist, Tom has received a number of grants, including professional development programs in NYC with mentors including Theo Bleckmann, Peter Eldridge and Barney McAll.
Tom will be joined by the band featured on Asp
