New Zealand-born singer-songwriter Luke Thompson performs an honest blend of folk, singing of road-weariness and the limbo between old and new. After an extensive tour around New Zealand, Australia, and Europe, Thompson took a hiatus from writing and performing, before his guitar beckoned the artist back into the realm of music. Enjoy his tender, autumnal compositions at the Omni Space this week.
