The new single by Tom Lee-Richards is both raw and strikingly honest. The themes of beauty and introspection captured in 'Madness' combined with Lee-Richards' velvet voice are enough to melt the hardest of hearts.
Featuring fellow New Zealander Monique Shelford's playful vocal weaving, 'Madness' is about the tension of ownership and blame when it comes to negotiating relationships.

The accompanying film clip is a harrowing and unnervingly romantic tale of life on the streets for Australia's homeless. Directed with compassion by Tim Brade, the clip for 'Madness' aims to shine a light on Homelessness Week Australia and bring awareness to the most vulnerable among us.

Tom Lee-Richards will be taking his new single and highly textured live show up and down the east coast of Australia in September with a series of intimate shows that will be sure to leave a lasting impression.
