Welcome to the official Mike Thomas Band Camp.
Mike is an ever changing and evolving multi-instrumentalist singer songwriter,and studio aficionado, that is not afraid to grow and challenge himself musically. Mike's vast catalog will take you anywhere from the guitar driven Alternative Rock of his early days,to the much more musically sophisticated and textured Indie Rock that can be found on more recent releases,as well as the occasional release that has found Mike dabbling with a bit of experimental,electronic embellishments.
Despite the many musical themes Woven throughout the Mike Thomas discography, at the core root of Mike's songwriting its easy to hear that there is an appreciation and fondness for good ,strong classic songwriting,influenced and derived by such illustrious acts as The Beatles,their solo releases,and Brian Wilson. Mike also has a big appreciation for all things Roots Music,weather its Rockabilly and Doo Wopp of the 1950's, to early Blues and Country, or the many Old Jazz Standards of The Great American Songbook.
This fondness and influence for all things Roots Music acts in part as an almost musical backbone or guideline,that together when combined with a much more modern Indie/Alternative rock songwriting approach helps to create not only something original,new, and fresh but music that also somehow sounds almost instantly recognizable.
