Globe trotting troubadour Carus Thompson has toured the world alongside The John Butler Trio, The Waifs, Xavier Rudd, Jack Johnson & Pete Murray, selling over 30,000 albums along the way.
He's won his loyal fan base through 20 years of hitting the road, always delivering passionate, energetic, folk-rocking shows that entertain and engage.
And with his latest album ISLAND, he's getting plaudits too, winning a WAM Song of The Year & being a finalist in the highly respected International Song Writing Competition. His single "Lies" was one of the most played songs on Double J last year.
FORTE magazine called ISLAND "a wonderful return from Australia's answer to Bruce Springsteen" and like the boss, live is where Carus does his thing the best.
His passionate and genuine pub-rock approach to performance, sets him apart from the majority of singer-songwriters. A Carus Thompson show will always be a journey through quiet ballads, to all out rockers, to some dance-floor fillers, all delivered with his unpretentious, crowd-inclusive energy.
