Thomas Thomas is giving the nostalgic charm of the mid-century a modern twist. Created and fronted by musical and visual artists Thomas Englund (Betaboys, Bell Tower) and singer-songwriter Shannon Thomas, the Calgary band is creating musical alchemy saturated with dreamy harmonies and catchy hooks.
To help bring their vision into being, Thomas and Shannon recruited guitarist Michael Hudec (Bell Tower), drummer and vocalist Anthony Vespa (Domestic Bear), and bassist Michael Stokes (Ten Minute Detour).
Honest and intentional about everything that is Thomas Thomas, the young group has combined creative forces to cultivate a memorable live experience for their audience. Their catchy song writing, dynamic visuals, and bright 50’s pop-rock sound has the young band generating buzz and gaining momentum ahead of their highly anticipated debut EP release on April 26.
