Les Thomas makes me want to be a better person. He writes one of the best folk blogs on the web in Unpaved (if you don’t count Timber and Steel of course). He also hosts a regular gig, the Unpaved Songwriter Sessions at The Old Bar in Fitzroy, Melbourne every Monday night. And then there’s the work he does for refugees and asylum seekers through his These Machines Cut Razorwire project. And did I mention he’s a bloody good singer-songwriter on top of that? Yep, Les Thomas makes me want to be a better person.

Thomas has just released his brand new video and single “Song for Selva” which documents the harrowing experiences that many asylum seekers have to endure both through the lyrics of the song and via the stunning visuals of director Daniel Knight. “Song for Selva” is available to buy via Bandcamp with all proceeds going to the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre.
