Sometimes one can get caught up in the hustle and bustle of the Adelaide Fringe. Swept away by the bright lights and tantalising shows, constantly seeking the next place to laugh out loud or dance the night away. But sometimes, you need a wind down and a place to just take it all in.
On Sunday night, Luke Marshall offered that place of ease at La Boheme, breaking away from the venues usual lineup of burlesque and cabaret.
The Adelaide based singer-songwriter and artist invited around 40 people to share in his latest EP, Shelter & Rain. It was an intimate affair and as an outsider who hadn’t heard Luke Marshall before, there were moments where it felt like I had walked in on a couple saying “I love you” for the first time.
If you haven’t heard of Luke Marshall, I recommend you change that. His voice is soft and melancholic with lyrics that remind you of dreaming by the seaside, and have you wishing you were wrapped up warm in a log cabin. Throughout the whole evening I was craving winter and wishing that it would start raining outside as his music would go perfectly with that scene.
Intimate and raw, the hour-long set showed Luke and his band play songs from both the current EP and the one released in 2015, Forest by the Sea. If you haven’t heard either of these yet, I suggest you do. Maybe with a warm cup of tea and all the blankets you can find… You’re in for a cosy one.
