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 “Darker than Black” 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.
