ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Inspired by a song and the images it evoked for singer-songwriter, Ben Thomas, So Elated was created in early 2008. Joined by fellow musicians in the Chicago area, So Elated recorded their debut, self-titled release in mid-2008.

Influenced by artists such as David Bazan, Wilco, Sufjan Stevens, Iron and Wine, Derek Webb and Bright Eyes, So Elated conjures up music that is both eclectic and unique.

So Elated's self title release invites listeners into an honest conversation that hits a pinnacle of the craft and energy Thomas' music is known for. A storyteller at heart, Thomas' lyrics are challenging and engaging without feeling forced or contrived, complementing a music vibe that is both simple and complex.

Jeremy Gudauskas, founder and manager of acclaimed Chicago-area college venue, "The Union", writes: "Ben Thomas has been grinding out some of the best independent folk-rock in Chicagoland for the past decade, and is primed and ready for national exposure with his latest collection of work. Crafting songs with creative instrumentation and intelligent lyrics, Thomas delivers a passionate, soul-stirring live performance that taps the mystery and wonder of the human experience. Images of dark and light, hope and despair, faith and doubt are all wrapped up in a sonic package that is simultaneously raw and polished. Thomas is a lover of music and a student of some of the best alt-indie-folk-rock both above and below the radar, influences he blends seamlessly into his own unique style of recording and performing."
