The Town Crier

by Robert Top Thomas

Florida "Swamp Blues" master Robert ‘Top’ Thomas a native of New Smyrna Beach, Florida has toured and/or recorded as guitarist and vocalist with several renowned Blues artists including; "Noble ‘Thin Man’ Watts", "Lazy Lester", "Victor Wainwright", "The King Snake All-Star Revue", "Alex Taylor", "Bill Wharton", "Blue House", "Mark ‘MuddyHarp’ Hodgson", to name a few; but is best known as a founding member of King Snake recording artist "SmokeHouse". "SmokeHouse" recorded four groundbreaking CD’s in the 90’s that defined the genre of Florida Swamp Blues. Living Blues Magazine said of their 3rd release Cadillac in the Swamp; "The year 1995 was a great one for blues recording, but this irrepressible set of updated swamp blues earns this reviewer’s vote as the best of the lot." Robert’s sound is a gumbo of Louisiana swamp and Delta roots, influenced by many of his heroes including; Lightnin’ Slim, Muddy Waters, Jimmy Reed, and Lazy Lester.
