LOMP hosts London writers and an open mic on the first Wednesday of each month.
Carly Thomas is an accomplished singer/songwriter who was born in Thailand and raised in Argentina, France, and various parts of North America. Along with her powerful lyrics, Thomas’ music is characteristic of various sub-genres including modern folk, rock, and country. She grew up playing everywhere from street festivals in Paris to the folk circuit in Manhattan, influenced and inspired by a life of constant change. After spending almost a decade on Canada's west coast, she returned to London to record her EP, "Explode", which won her a 2015 Jack Richardson music award (and again in '18) leaving a mark on the London music scene. She has also gone on to participate in various outreach projects, with a strong commitment to giving back in her community. She has toured Canada and Europe, performed at several festivals including Home County, CMW and NXNE. Writing with honesty and integrity, Carly has a voice easy to relate to, and makes folk “ish” music interesting and intelligent.
Open mic to follow Carly's performance.
