Luke Thompson grew up on the white-sand beaches of Mount Maunganui... surfing, swimming and perfecting his guitar playing... while soaking up the summer sun. Lucky boy.
The idyllic Bay of Plenty seems the perfect beginning for the vividly blue-eyed 22-year-old, whose stunning debut single 'Morning Light' was released to radio and music television late 2005, enjoying 11 sunny weeks in the NZ Radio Top 40 chart. The 'Morning Light' music video placed in the Juice TV Top 30 chart for 6 weeks, as well as receiving several Top 5 ratings on C4's Select. The clip was also finalist for Best Solo Artist at the 2006 Juice TV Awards, having been directed by the award-winning Adam Jones (Elemeno P, Steriogram, Pluto) of Zoomslide.
Luke Thompson first debuted in the Official New Zealand Top 40 Singles on 26 March 2007 with the song Perfect Drive. There are two entries by Luke Thompson in the charts.
