Biography

Tom Ugly is an Australian Electronic / Rock collective based around singer-songwriter, producer and instrumentalist, Tom Ugly. At the age of 20, Tom Ugly has already had a long list of achievements including the self titled debut EP reaching #3 on the AIR Singles Chart and #23 on the ARIA Singles Chart. Success began at the age of 16, when Tom Ugly was announced the inaugural winner of the triple j Unearthed High competition with his first radio single “Cult Romance” in 2008. “Cult Romance” went on to become one of triple j’s most-played songs in 2008, and was also released as a free MP3 on unearthed (receiving over 35,000 downloads). Encompassing a broad range of sounds, Tom Ugly headlined two national tours and shared the stage with international acts such as Groove Armada, Art vs Science, Evermore, Sia, Datarock, Grinspoon, Midnight Juggernauts and the Grates. … and all of this, before he had even completed high school. Now that school’s over, Tom Ugly has stowed away his books and swapped them for his first love – music. Taking a gap year at the end of his final year of school, Tom travelled overseas, working on new material and meeting people that have helped him envision the next phase of his career. Nobody knows for sure what happened on that trip, but the boy who left Australia at the beginning of 2010 came back a different young man. With a sleek new face and an album due for release in 2012, Tom Ugly is ready to light up the stage.
