Bio

tomtom is the Solo project from Brisbane native and music-mastermind William Tom. From exploring bedroom beats while studying music in 2008, tomtom has shape-shifted through House & Synth-Wave to lo-fi hiphop and established himself as a producer and engineer for much of the Brisbane hiphop scene along the way. But 2018 saw him pick up the guitar and return to the Alt-Rock roots of his 90s childhood, boot-legging Hottest 100s onto cassette during steamy summer BBQs.

In December 2018 his song "Better Know Better" was selected from over 300 entries into GYROstream's Big Boost Competition as the winner. As part of the prize package he was thrown him into the studio with Ian Haug (Powerfinger) and Konstantin Kersting (The Belligerents, Tia Gostelow, Mallrat, WAAX) at AirLock studios to turn his demo into a certified tune. tomtom is now working with Alistar Richardson (The Cairos, Zefereli, Clea) on a follow up and the future just keeps looking better and better...

The latest single from Brisbane artist tomtom... marks the start of a new musical chapter for the multi-instrumentalist.

i'm trying my hardest but can't quite pick who this reminds me of. either way it's a soaring but jagged mix. you've balanced that raw appeal without being too scrappy.
