Adrian Thomas

Working Poor

from the CD Single.

ADRIAN THOMAS is a Singer/Songwriter & Community Worker from Cairns born into Housing commission areas of inner-city Melbourne and Nerang in QLD. Adrian grew up without a maternal figure when his mother passed at the age of 2 and his step mother left, forcing his father to fend for 5 children.

Adrian took on the maternal role of washing, getting his younger brothers to school and cooking whilst his father worked. Fuelled by a desire to break free from the poverty he grew out of Adrian delivers a gripping portrayal of one man's struggle to make sense of the system and his fight to be something more than what he was given.
