After finishing his 1st EU tour including shows at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival Tom Lee-Richards is launching his debut Mini-LP ‘Out of the Oddness’ and celebrating with a NZ, Aus and EU tour. The Blue Smoke launch will be supported by the extraordinary Ryan Fisherman and striking Matty Von Voin.
Under The Radar are currently premiering the music video for the title track from Tom’s Mini-LP, directed by NZ’s extraordinary Phoebe Mackenzie and Emily Berryman: http://bit.ly/2BGsIAC
“If the tune feels itself like something made by a true one-off, that’s no accident.” – Pop Matters Chicago.
“Idiosyncratic songwriting that expresses a unique artistic vision; in fact, his latest single “Out of the Oddness,” recounts the true story of a very young Tom breaking his arm on the first day of elementary school with a novelistic attention to detail” – ‘The joy of violent movement’ New York.
The single is now also available on Spotify: http://spoti.fi/2rTXuTi. You can download the Mini-LP on bandcamp: http://bit.ly/2Ep4OJ4

Matty Von Voin:
Matthew is a singer songwriter with an interesting approach to music. He writes from instinct, often ignoring conventions of song structure and form. His rich and abstract lyrics mixed with Ben Edwards sense of space and atmosphere make his upcoming album an important piece of work. It will give us a glimpse inside the mind of this very talented young artist at the beginnings of his solo career.
