Thom Lion - Fire Escape

Thom Lion - Fire Escape
Thom Lion is a ramshackle pop music treasure emerging from the beach side suburbs of Adelaide. Raised by free spirited parents in the 90’s, Thom was allowed to decide his own middle name when he was four years old. Having an obsession with lions, at a time when “The Lion King” and Elton John were burning bright in his life – Lion is what he chose. In 2015 his music was welcomed with open arms by music blogs and fans alike gaining airplay on Triple J, Double J, the ABC and a raft of community stations across Australia. After an exciting year of shows, sharing the stage with artists from The Rubens to The Waifs, Thom Lion was named by the AU Review as one of SA's Top 5 Emerging artists.

The months leading into 2016 have been spent bunkered down venting some emotion charged songs on his living room piano. After sifting through gumtree to find a scrappy garage sale synth, he and his rebellious cohorts ‘The Tamers’ got cracking on a new bunch of recordings with legendary Melbourne Producer John Castle (Vance Joy, Cub Sport) set for release from early 2016.

About this track...

“Fire Escape” came out of frustration at a relationship where he felt like he was caught between a rock and a hard place on whether to pursue it or not. After a great reception from the band the song was recorded with Thom later adding in his own flare.
