Rachael Thoms & Luke Sweeting

2023 Artists

Rachael is one of a new breed of truly versatile vocalists, with a voice described as rich, ethereal, soulful, and highly polished. She is uniquely accomplished in multiple genres, holding jazz and classical performance degrees and over 30 years of performing experience. She recently recorded with Australian jazz virtuoso, composer, and pianist Andrea Keller and has supported renowned artists such as George Benson, Larry Carlton, Vince Jones, and Lior.

Lyrical and sonorous, Luke’s artful pianistic style is often expressed in epic themes and harmonically interweaving compositions. Band leader and composer for the melodic-contemporary improv group Grey Wing Trio with trumpeter Ken Allars and drummer Finn Ryan, he has been composing and touring Australia and New Zealand for eight years.

Rachael and Luke forged their musical collaboration at the ANU School of Music in the early 2000s and will perform original music from their album, The Great Unknown.
