Bio

Thom Lion is a ramshackle pop music treasure emerging from the beach side suburbs of Adelaide. Raised by free spirited parents in the 90’s, Thom was allowed to decide his own middle name when he was four years old. Having an obsession with lions, at a time when “The Lion King” and Elton John were burning bright in his life – Lion is what he chose. After a busy 12 months writing, recording and sharing the stage with artists from The Rubens to Saskwatch - Thom Lion was named by the AU Review as one of SA'S Top 5 Emerging artists in 2015. The months leading into 2016 have been spent bunkered down venting some emotion charged songs on his living room piano. After sifting through gumtree to find a scrappy garage sale synth, Thom Lion and his band got cracking on a new bunch of recordings with Melbourne Producer John Castle, with new EP 'Sleep Riots' out July 29.

This is a neat package. If you don't mind the hairs on your neck tingling ever so slightly then put the headphones on for this one.
