Conor Smalakis, known by his artist name Tom Bombadil, is a 20 year old trip hop instrumental artist residing in Van Nuys, California. His newest release, "Poisoned Piano", is an attempt to string together different pieces of impactful music into a reflection of his own emotional perspective. Rather than sonic perfection, he strives to find his own voice within the media around him. "Poisoned Piano", is heavily influenced by the series â€œDarker than Blackâ€ and producers such as DJ Okawari, DJ Whitesmith, and Nujabes. This EP is a follow up to his recent compilation tape, "Agoraphobia", released via Bliss Eternal.
"This project was made in a time in which life was moving fast, and things seemed serene. But in this serenity there was something slightly off, a deep heavy undertone to the positivity that my recovery had enveloped me in."- Tom Bombadil.
