Tom Lee-Richards says
Tom Lee-Richards will be bringing his new single 'Madness' and highly dynamic live show to The Milk Factory, Brisbane for one night only as a part of his Australian 'Madness' tour. The night will be supported by the beautiful 'Virginia Sook' and Nathan John Kearney. This will also be Virginia Sook's last Australian show ever!

The tour celebrates the release of both Tom's single 'Madness' a raw and strikingly honest track co-produced with Matt Neighbour (Matt Corby, Courtney Barnett) and it's stunning music video featuring Laura Wheelwright (Animal Kingdom).

Guest Supports on the night:

Experience Virginia Sook's powerful softness. Virginia explore notions of femininity, birth and humankind’s relationship with nature through ethereal folk songs. They’re bouyed by songwriter Lindsay Roser’s unique harp playing and raspy voice, along with an ever-changing cast of musicians which currently features Clarinetist Matt Hsu from the Mouldy Lovers and bassist Andrew McInally.

Nathan John Kearney:

The Music.com on Madness:

"Featuring the guest-vocal talents of fellow New Zealand-bred performer Monique Shelford, Lee-Richards has delivered a striking and evocative tune that ruminates on themes of beauty and introspection as it explores the shifting tensions and power dynamics that exist in almost every relationship.

Despite the personal themes, the song is so much more than simple navel-gazing; the track is accompanied by its gorgeously shot, deeply moving — and rather harrowing — clip, directed by Tim Brade, which captures a remarkable degree of wordless emotion from its protagonist couple before taking a sudden turn for the gut-wrenching as we're made aware of their wider circumstances — that they are in fact homeless and contending with the increased obstacles and heightened danger that experience entails.

The issue is clearly one close to Lee-Richards' heart, with the track arriving just in time to shine a spotlight on the efforts of this year's Homelessness Week, recognised this year from 1-7 August and co-ordinated by Homelessness Australia.".
