Sydney based musician, singer-songwriter and artist, Tom Ugly, was first seen in the public eye while still in high-school after winning the Inaugural “Unearthed High” competition on triple j – Australia’s leading alternate radio station on ABC. Bucking the system, Tom Ugly teamed with surf-wear brand Billabong to put the finishing touches on his debut self-titled EP, as an alternative to traditional methods. The record peaked at #3 on the AIR indie charts and #23 on the Australian ARIA singles charts, remaining on both for 12 consecutive weeks, with its leading single Cult Romance becoming one of triple j's most played songs of all time and 35,000+ digital downloads. Often masked, and with a distinct vocal style, his independent ideals have come to create an intriguing blend of rock + electronica that has landed him opening slots with acts such as SIA (picked by the artist herself), Groove Armada and Simian Mobile Disco. Music festivals like ‘Pyramid Rock’ and ‘Days Like This’ have also welcomed his billing, as well as headlining a live showcase at the APPLE Store in Sydney. Tom Ugly’s most recent live appearance was on the FilmINK stage at Supanova’s Comic-Convention in Brisbane + Adelaide, where he showcased a range of new tracks from his vault of unreleased material. With plans towards releasing a slew of more new music and various other projects in the works, it is exciting times ahead for the masked, indie artist.
