Sam Thomas – ‘Gift’ ( Just Music)

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , on June 21, 2013 by dk

Sam_Thomas_press_shot_2_580pSam Thomas has just revealed his second single, ‘Gift’  which is out on Just Music this July.
Just Music are the original label behind Jon Hopkins. Originally signing him 14 years ago, they now continue to guide his career as managers having signed him onto Domino after his third album. Pioneers for spotting interesting and burgeoning talent, Sam Thomas is their latest find.

Son of a former Opera singer, multi-instrumentalist Sam Thomas takes influence from the slow-building classical music he listened to growing up and fuses this with the rockier sounds of his teenage years. Influenced by the likes of Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin and My Bloody Valentine, he creates an emotive post-rock sound, juxtaposing heavy instrumentals with soft pastoral calms.
