A wonderful return from Australia’s answer to Bruce Springsteen — FORTE Magazine
“First class songwriting” — Living In the Land Of Oz
Originally making his name as part of explosion of the Australian Roots movement in the 2000's alongside good friends The John Butler Trio, The Waifs, Xavier Rudd and Pete Murray, troubadour Carus Thompson is a first class songwriter who¯s songs & stories connect. As well as his Colonial mates he's toured with Jack Johnson, Dave Mathews and Damien Rice, however in the UK it was his 3 tours opening for folk star Seth Lakeman that really put him on the map, earning him some BBC2 play through folk-roots aficionado Bob Harris.
Carus returns to London after a brilliant show last year launching his brand new album ISLAND. At home in Oz it's been nominated for many an award and critically lauded. FORTE magazine called it «a welcome return from Australia¯s answer to Bruce Springsteen” whilst single „Beach Fire“ was shortlisted in the prestigious International Songwriting Competition.
London has always been a great town for this antipodean folk-rock talent, with his energetic and passionate approach to performance always pulling a crowd. He has the rare skill of being able to emotionally engage, whilst also entertaining — always ensuring the crowd get out of their seats. A singer-songwriter he is but with a good dose of Oz pub energy thrown in.
Support comes from Albert Jones
Albert is based between France and the UK. He has toured all over Europe promoting his own material and been rhythm and lead guitarist for critically acclaimed artists such as Martin Harley, Marc O'Reilly and Ruarri Joseph (William The Conqueror).
