Spud Thompson is a vocalist and multi-instrumentalist, with a cheeky and emotive style that runs the gamut of human experience. His work encompasses a wide range of musical genres, from simple ballads and folk songs to sophisticated electronica and vintage rhythm and blues. He and his collaborators are based in Australia, where he was born and raised in rural Victoria, surrounded by the natural beauty of beaches and bushland. This upbringing, with its ample inspiration, has instilled in him a deep understanding of the human condition, and this is reflected in the diverse range of emotions and feelings that he brings to his music. He is an artist of great depth and nuance, and one who is always striving to grow and evolve in his craft.
