Bio

After a string of intimate shows across Europe in 2019, Tom Riccioni hiked the Camino Primitivo in the north of Spain as a pilgrim. Along the trail he sang to passersby. Mostly to cows, unicorns and the mountain peaks. This journey changed what it meant to be a songwriter for Tom. Authenticity, now paved the way and in January of 2020 Tom released a self-produced single called “Sunup” which received national airplay “…I want you to sit in the magic of Tom’s music… So much emotion behind his lyrics” ~ Nkechi Anele (Triple J, Roots’N’All)

Tom's new single “Rainbow River” is a step up for the dynamic songwriter. Showcasing his raspy-honey voice, abstract lyrics and his home production prowess. The single artwork is in collaboration with friend and artist Nicole Cociş, and the song is mixed by Tom Harman.
The song is from his upcoming EP “ A Living Home”, recorded in a Park Orchard’s share house during the long Melbourne lockdown. This Storyteller’s vivid narrative will pull you through scenes of your own wildest dreams.

Wasn't expecting this from you, Tombolo. You show off your voice and it's one to be heard. Seriously man, you can SING. You've brought everything right down to earth, it's intimate, raw and I love the nature you've surrounded yourself in. Beautifully recorded too.
