Armed with a new album – Frantic City – Toronto‘s Luke Nicholson makes his Carleton debut, along with up-and-coming local songwriter Thomas McCallum, on Wednesday, July 22nd. Show time is 8 PM and tickets are $10 at the door.
Check out this video below. I think you’ll see why Luke is compared favourably to the likes of Elton John and Billy Joel. If this is what’s being described as “alt/pop,” I like it a lot!
Hailing from Six Mile Brook, Nova Scotia, up-and-comer Thomas McCallum likes things to be cut and dried, though this is seldom the case. Take him or leave him, you’re likely to run into him again; putting a tune in your bucket or meandering home. His Crocus Songs EP is an engaging piece of work, you’ll like him.
