After nurturing a dedicated and loyal following in his adopted home of Australia, New Zealand-born Tom Lee-Richards is bringing his unique blend of alt-folk/pop home for his first-ever Kiwi tour this October.
The Melbourne-based singer’s ‘Madness’ tour coincides with the release of his latest single of the same name and a stunning music video.
Produced by Matthew Neighbour (Courtney Barnett), ‘Madness’ is a raw and strikingly honest track about the tension of ownership and blame when negotiating relationships. It breathes with the rise and fall of Lee-Richard’s hypnotic hook and features the playful vocal weaving of Kiwi singer, Monique Shelford, who hails from Napier.
The song’s volatile journey is perfectly matched with the hard-hitting music video, starring Laura Wheelwright (Animal Kingdom).

‘Madness’ follows the success of Lee-Richard’s’ last single, ‘As Far As India’ – a breezy, nostalgic tune with sweet pop influences, in which the singer drew on the experiences of his childhood, growing up in New Zealand.
You can experience ‘Madness’ live this October, when Lee-Richards tours both the north and south islands for the first time.
