Vegetable Plot wins Fringekids Award 

My new show The Vegetable Plot has just picked up the award for Best Kid's show at the 2014 Sydney Fringe. The cast and I are thrilled that the show has been so well-received by both audiences and critics. Both performances were sold out. In all, 14 different performers featured in the live show. The debut EP is already getting plenty of spins on Spotify, Bandcamp, Soundcloud and community radio and work is nearly complete on the full length album. Thanks to Peter Campbell for these great photos, you can see more on the Vegetable Plot's official website.

Chronic Symphonic Review in Sydney Morning Herald 

The Chronic Symphonic Live DVD/CD recently received this fantastic review from John Shand in the Sydney Morning Herald

Luke Escombe And the Corporation

CHRONIC SYMPHONIC (MGM)4.5 stars

What's not to like? Luke Escombe is funny and brave, a showman and an artist, a brilliantly engaging lyricist, expert tunesmith, fine guitarist and exceptional singer. Seldom is such sophistication wrapped in a coating of such overt fun. Even Escombe's most savage satire evokes a laugh rather than a snarl. The brilliant, heart-warming, rocking-or-funking songs are realised by a band that coats all it touches in class, capped by ingenious parts for the string trio the Noise, penned by guitarist Aaron Flower. Chronic Symphonic is suitelike with its through-thread of the sad, mad state we call the human condition. This live DVD includes the amusing videos that garnished the show, and is accompanied by a CD of the same material. Escombe has simultaneously released another highly recommended disc called Live On the Coast. Buy both. Hear him. I'd ask why he is not a major star if I didn't already know it was a lottery. JOHN SHAND

Don't miss my return to the role of Amos Elroy, MC of Little Egypt's Speakeasy. This is a great show mixing 50's R n B with sexy burlesque dancing and some of Sydney's finest singers and musicians including Brian Campeau and Elana Stone. The show is co-written by me, Lucian McGuiness and Dom Santangelo. Highly recommended! Click the image for more info and to book tickets
