It's you that I care about.

“Tom Richardson had made his way down the highway from Bluesfest in Byron Bay to play the southern state. Performing his feel-good acoustic-based tales of love and peace, Richardson works hard to involve the audience, who respond enthusiastically to his chilled but accomplished tunes like the new single Somebody Say Love.”


“I’m always fascinated by loop artists and the coordination that is needed to play and record all at the same time and last night was no exception. Tom’s dry wit and soothing tones and harmonies, managed to get the crowd warmed up especially with his rendition of a Beatles classic “Come Together” and that’s what exactly the crowd did.”


"Tom Richardson proved to be the highlight - Aided by clever skills on the loop pedal, which added both layers and texture to his overall performance. A voice that was just sublime to bliss out to...”



Tom Richardson is your newest oldest friend. And his brand new offering - ‘Promise of the Light’ - will leave you feeling as fulfilled as your most inspired coffee date. Tom’s songwriting, story telling & intricate guitar playing are a delicate balance of grace, truth and passion, evident of an artist whose soul shows signs of unpaved back-roads, with sleeves stained by countless hearts from all corners of the globe. Appreciating the liberation in exploration and privilege of forging relationships with listeners and cultures around the world, Tom has performed in 15 different countries, reflected in musical arrangements better categorised by emotion and experience, rather than genre.

As 2018 marks a decade as a full-time independent artist, Tom Richardson might just be your next ‘over-

life’ success story.

Having shared songs and stories at almost every festival in his homeland Australia, and stages with Joe Bonamassa, Cold Chisel and John Butler Trio, his passport now shows memories of musical collaborations with Native American poets, Indian Kirtan masters, Fijian highland village choirs & indigenous Australian icons. It’s a musical odyssey that includes regular tours around Australia, North America, Asia and Europe leading to “rave reviews, prime festival slots, and international airplay”.



"Tom has got the voice, and he's got the songs."


"Haunting & romantic, lyrically deeply moving”


“I will eat my dinner suit if Tom is not a roaring success”

— Jamie McKew, Port Fairy Folk Festival director

Festival favourite singer-songwriter, Tom Richardson, opened the show. His increasingly impressive set of guitar and loop driven songs held the crowd.
