As a singer, songwriter, and guitarist raised on a steady diet of old school funk, rock, and soul, Thomas also attributes many of his musical sensibilities to monumentally influential artists like Al Green, Stevie Wonder, Billy Preston, and Bobby McFerrin and groups like Chicago and Earth Wind & Fire. On the rock side of things, his primary influences are more contemporary Coldplay, Keane, and John Mayer chief among them. After teaming up with multi-talented, veteran producer and guitarist, Chris Camozzi, in 2006, Thomas recorded a series of demos at the legendary Plant Studios, where the fingerprints of Prince and Stevie Wonder still remain - an experience Thomas has described as extremely humbling. At this early stage in his career, Thomas has already had the opportunity to record with musicians like percussionist Karl Perazzo (Santana, Jason Mraz), keyboardist Sundra Manning (Prince), drummer Brian Collier (Lauryn Hill), and lead guitarist Jeff Tamelier (formerly of Tower of Power), among others. Today, Thomas continues to write, record, and hone his craft.
