Adrian Thomas - Turukawa & Degai

Adrian Thomas - Turukawa & Degai
On a sweltering 37 degree summer day a man standing on the crossroads had left behind his home, his job, his life to Meditate in the bush and learn from an Indigenous Elder in the heart of Australia. He sat and reflected on his relinquishing of all the mod cons of city life, no money, no security and no direction just an Acoustic Guitar and a dream of something more. As he plucked the strings on that fateful day he found the rhythm to his rhyme, he found his soul, he found his calling, he found the music!

Blending uplifting, lyrically driven songs with sweeping melodies, his versatility in delivery of upbeat songs inspire and challenge, whilst his ballads open the heart strings. With lyrics that arouse hope, empowerment and a strong connection to land, he synthesises an earthy, uncomplicated sound and dishes out seductive poetry with his deep, soulful voice.
