Prior to the release of his new album Indigo, producer, vocalist and multi-instrumentalist, River Tiber aka Tommy Paxton-Beesley, is sharing a new track, “I’m A Stone.” Indigo is Set for release on June 24th.
Indigo sees Paxton-Beesley demonstrating his unique ability as a multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, producer and creative force. He writes, arranges, plays, and records almost every element on every composition, but also uses collaboration as a tool to generate and hone ideas. “Acid Test” is a shining example, as Paxton-Beesley lays drums, bass, synth and cello as a powerful, psychedelic base beneath layers of his airy, soulful vocals. The track also features contributions from members of his live band – Thadeus Garwood, John Mavro, Danny Voicu, and David Lewis.
In two short years River Tiber has developed a global reputation as a producer, not only for the acumen and singularity of vision demonstrated in his own music and collaborations, but also for his work with beat maker heavyweights like Frank Dukes that have lead to vocal placements and session credits on songs by Drake, Travis Scott, Mac Miller, Freddie Gibbs, and more. Last year he also worked closely with friends BADBADNOTGOOD in arranging and playing cello, violin and trombone to the group’s Ghostface Killah collab Sour Soul.
River Tiber will play select shows through 2016, including Halifax Jazz, WayHome Music & Arts, Forecastle, Neon Desert, and a handful of dates supporting Kaytranada on his 99.9% tour.
