Laurie Luke is a Perth-based musician with an extraordinary story to tell. Laurie posted a confronting image to social media in July 2021, which explained a lot, but not everything; which is why I thought it would be a great idea to reconnect, and if Laurie was up for it, to share what happened. It’s a tale of misfortune and calamity, but also extraordinary courage and bravery. We cover a lot of ground in this conversation, from life-altering events to plenty of topics relating to our favourite subject; music. Laurie also has a new song out, “Long Way Home”, which in its own way, commemorates his momentous journey back from the brink.
