Tomi Gray

Tomi Gray, singer-songwriter and guitarist from Sydney rockers The Ruckus has just completed an ambitious feat by writing and recording 100 demos in 100 days from his home studio. Read on to to find out if Tomi is drained and exhausted or willing to go 100 more!
1. What made you take on such a creative commitment to do 100 demos in 100 days and when did the idea come to you?
I’ve been playing music and claiming it as my defining characteristic for the bigger part of my life. Part of the trip I’m on involved me looking at things like who I define myself as and why? A lot of this process was me having to admit that while I called myself a ‘Musician’ I wasn’t doing enough to actually earn that right in my own eyes any more, and perhaps giving priority to the things that are less in line with why I originally fell in love with music and creating. The biggest part of this project for me was regaining a level of trust in my ability to stick to an intention I set for myself and put some dynamite behind a new trajectory I’ve chosen to fire down.

2. Were some days more of a struggle than others or were the creative juices flowing all the time?
Of course. That’s how life operates in any situation. Somedays were a real pleasure while others it took everything I could muster. I had to sacrifice a lot during the experience as I was determined to put everything second to this goal. 100 days is an interesting amount of time because it feels completely different depending on what side you are considering it from.

3. The 100 demos are rather diverse in genre; have you learned anything about yourself as a writer by exploring these avenues?
I went into this “Knowing” that I was a perfectionist. I would often sit on songs for months, trying to get them to be just right and inevitably would end up finishing very few. Now I’ve had practise in having to learn to let go of the strangle hold a bit which in turn led to me exploring areas outside my comfort zone. The more I let go of what I “knew” about myself, my abilities and the way the process was supposed to go, it was amazing to see things open up everywhere.
4. There’s been a great response all-round to the project and many of the Facebook clips went viral in Mexico in particular. What was your reaction to that?
I was really excited but kind of not surprised, if that makes sense? It’s not as though I expected anything close to the response I’ve gotten from a few of those demos but more, because I went into this entirely without expectation – always returning to and focussing on my original intention which was strictly a personal exercise – when something like that happened it wasn’t even on my radar. I just got to look at it objectively and think, “OK, wow thats pretty interesting!” but didn’t allow myself time to dwell on how to capitalise or recreate it as I had to start work on a new song the next day and that was the most important thing to me. How many distractions come along in everyday life to knock us off our course? The good and the bad are much the same.
5. What’s next for Tomi Gray? Do you have 100 more demos up your sleeve to pump out or will you flesh out some of what you’ve already put forward?

I’m going to move out of Sydney at the end of the month. I’ve lived and learned here for a good few years succeeding and failing and I feel now ready to take off the ‘L’ plates and head out to see what is happening beyond this place. I’ve sold the majority of my things and bought a van which I will live in and convert into a camper as I go along. I’m going to ride into a new town every few days, play music and meet people. I’ve started vague discussions with a few record labels in regards to releasing an album of my favourites from these 100 demos, revisited. Im going to see if I can meet someone also who can teach me to surf. I still write everyday, only I remember now why I wanted to do it.
Tomi Gray’s ‘100 Demos 100 Days’ is out now via all good digital platforms

BOOTLEG RASCAL

REVEAL TASTER TRACK ‘WITH YOU’ AND FREE ENTRY POP-UP SHOW TONIGHT IN SYDNEY

Sydney’s indie-dub revelers Bootleg Rascal have just unveiled news of a free pop-up show in Sydney tonight at The Record Crate, Glebe and new track ‘With You’ – another taste from their second studio album (due Oct 2017).

To celebrate the release of the new song, the trio has announced a last-minute intimate show to be held tonight in Sydney’s inner-west at The Record Crate, Glebe. Entry is free via RSVP on presenters Rare Finds’ website and subject to venue capacity.

Taking cues from the likes of The Roots and Gorillaz, eclectic new cut ‘With You’ combines themes of reggae, dub and hip-hop. Energetic front man Carlos Lara channels the vibes of Leon Bridges with his soul-infused and compelling vocal melodies, which are strongly complimented by the bands highly detailed and intriguing approach to composition and production.

Over the past twelve-months, the band has ripped through their first headline tour of Europe and UK, toured Australia multiple times selling out shows all around the country, re-invented themselves as a 2-piece acoustic duo supporting Sticky Fingers across the US and Canada, and had a line-up change. They’ve also just come off the back of Sureshaker’s Annual ‘Shake N Bake’ tour alongside; Boo Seeka, Gold Member and Lyall Moloney, where the band debuted new songs as well as their freshly streamlined, 3-piece flavour.

With a couple of months’ down time back at home, the group are currently working on their second album with longtime collaborator, Ian Pritchett. The upcoming record emphasises their melodic knack and explores a recent Rascal obsession for 80’s synth sounds and crunchy, old school drum machines. With splashes of Kid Cudi and Massive Attack, their new record is set to be an extension of everything we’ve come to love about the band, while delivering a new depth of maturity and some of their best song writing to date.

In the coming weeks, the band will reveal the accompanying music video for ‘With You’.

‘With You’ is available via Spotify, Apple Music, iTunes and all good digital retailers Friday April 14
