Tommy Ill is a rapper, from Wellington New Zealand. Tommy Ill has been on Letterman. He’s endorsed New Zealand Beef and Lamb with Sarah Ulmer. His two albums and many EPs have recieved critical acclaim. Stuff.co.nzsays he's 'one of the best and most original rappers to come out of Wellington', and Salient Magazine reckons, "one of the most interesting and entertaining voices in modern New Zealand music". He's getting ready to release his third album Fearless Bueller, on May 6th. Oh and since he's no longer tied down to a major label he's decided to put it out for free.
Tommy and his cohorts have been on tour and sold out venues all across the country. They’ve also performed at The Big Day out, Homegrown, Camp A Low Hum, and La De Da NYE. They once even got in a bit of trouble for a controversial performance on breakfast television. This May they are throwing parties in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch and you're invited. They've also brought their good buddy Totems along to get the party started. It's going to be good times.
