Les Thomas is a Melbourne singer-songwriter and activist who follows in the same tradition as Joe Hill and Woody Guthrie. His songs are pointed and passionate, addressing matters both personal and political. His debut 'Song for Selva' details the story of a Tamil asylum seeker detained without charge for 37 months. His album 'Survivor's Tale' has been described as "an incredible collection of songs" (Denise Hylands, 3RRR) with an exceptional line-up of musicians including Jeff Lang, Ashley Davies, The Stillsons and more.
