#1 Dads, live at Oxford Art Factory in Sydney, AU. Recorded July 23, 2015.



Melbourne-based singer/songwriter, composer and producer Tom Iansek is best known for his work with duo Big Scary. What most people don’t know about is his breathtaking solo project #1 Dads.

Amassing a cult following off the back the beautiful About Face LP, the myth and mystery surrounding #1 Dads grew and grew until finally Iansek was forced to take the project to the live stage. Debuting live at the Sydney Festival’s famous Spiegeltent to immense critical acclaim, the word soon got out that this was a live show that had to be witnessed to be believed.

We jumped at the chance and were lucky enough to film Iansek and his band playing live to a sold out Oxford Arts Factory in Sydney. And what a show it was. There’s a reason that #1 Dads broke records at the venue, selling out 5 straight nights in a row. You’re about to find out why.
