Emerging Melbourne artists, Jess Tyler and producer Thom Swain, come together to deliver an electro boogie ‘Rich’.
Teaming up in gloomy Victoria during Stage 4 lockdown just for ‘fun’, the tune developed into a must release. ‘Rich’ protests gender stereotypes and kicks misogyny to the curb. Thom’s combination of synthpop and neo-soul creates a captivating electronic groove evocative of artists such as Jordan Rakei and Kaytranda. Jess felt an urgency in contributing to Thom’s production on ‘Rich’, with a message of reclaiming control and celebrating the independence that is female.
Fighting for change in your dancing shoes? Yes, yes, yes!
In 2019 Jess Tyler introduced herself with her debut album Self Love Club landing her two sold out shows at The Gasometer and radio love globally. Thom Swain debuts as a producer on the track after playing bass for acts such as King River Rising, Kujo Kings and Ezra Allen.
