Today is the day. Following a week-long Apple Music exclusive, River Tiber has released his long-gestating and highly-anticipated debut full length album Indigo. to the world. The Toronto producer, vocalist and multi-instrumentalist, aka Tommy Paxton-Beesley’s new release furthers the silky, midnight-hued electronic R&B aesthetic of his previous EPs - 2015’s When The Time Is Right and 2013’s The Star Falls.
Indigo joins an ever-growing catalogue that features collaborations with Kaytranada, Pusha T, Daniel Caesar, Jazz Cartier, and more. The record 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.
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 and was one of just three Canadians selected to Red Bull Music Academy Paris in 2015.
River Tiber will play select shows through the rest of 2016, including WayHome Music & Arts Festival and Forecastle, with many more dates to be announced soon.
