  •                      'Biography'



    A dusty blend of folk and rock, with a nod towards the blues, Wil Thomas is a journey man and a storyteller, a laconic troubadour and the kind of artist you yearn to have at your fireside…

    With his tales of Bush Rangers and modern day political gangsters, Thomas sings of redemption, love and revolution. Weaving stories from a stormy Celtic coastline all the way to the blood red dirt of the Kimberley.

    Thomas' quest for the story in song is passionate and single-minded. With his sophomore album ‘Provenance’ nominated for an Australian music award and gathering traction internationally, Thomas has continued to build on the poetry and swagger of his debut album, ‘Fisherman's Bend.’ Drawing from a melting pot of influences, he epitomises all there is to love about raw, relevant and honest Australian music…
