In 2019, after No Mono came to an end, Tom Snowdon took some time to recalibrate as a solo artist. He began working with collaborators who helped him see music afresh and reinspired his love for creating. The first solo music Snowdon shared was an EP of covers Channel (2020), inspired by a childhood love of Yorta Yorta artist Jimmy Little’s Messenger album. It featured tracks ranging from Men At Work’s “Who Can It Be Now?” and Kylie’s “Can’t Get You Out of My Head”. In 2022 we heard Flood at the Heart - a 2-track of his first solo work. Those two songs “Empty Start" and “Protection” will ultimately live on Lonely Tree.
Off the back of Flood at the Heart, Snowdon performed memorable shows for Sydney Fest, in the sold out Harry Seidler Mushroom, and as part of Phoenix Central Park’s VII’ s season. And it’s live where Snowdon’s music really hits hardest - those who saw Snowdon guest for #1 Dads’ surprise hit set at Splendour in the Grass 2015, or who caught the visceral No Mono show for Vivid Live 2018 at the Sydney Opera House, can attest to Snowdon’s unique and mesmerising performance, as he uses his body and voice to create an intensely affecting experience.
