Born and raised in the San Francisco bay area, Scott Thomas would leave home at fifteen and make his way to Los Angeles working odd jobs, surfing and living in his car. By the mid 1990's Thomas had become a fixture on the LA club circuit taking up residency on Tuesday nights at Club Largo in the Fairfax district, where he, along with Jon Brion, Aimee Mann, Rufus Wainwright and Grant Lee Phillips, would help establish Largo as a weekly 'scene.'

His 1998 Elektra release as described by BAM magazine - "One listen to California, the Scott Thomas Band's debut album, and you'll know this is the real thing. His voice equal parts Jeff Tweedy and Jackson Browne...Thomas and band emerged from the forest with the finest slice of SoCal since Gram Parsons untimely death two and a half decades ago."

Over the past five years, Scott has been writing and recording song after amazing song. Stories from a wanderer, a dreamer, a believer-laid to the perfect score for fin de siècle California. The first of three albums that spring from these recordings is Lovers and Thieves, the first release from newly formed Halfpipe Records.

Lovers and Thieves is a collection of tunes recorded in different locations and from occasional impromptu gatherings, featuring a cadre of familiar faces from the LA music scene, including; Ethan Johns (Ryan Adams, Counting Crows, Rufus Wainwright, The Wallflowers), Michael Andrews (Jason Mraz, Metric, Donnie Darko, Elgin Park), Benmont Tench (Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers), Marc Ford (the Black Crowes), Gary Jules, Julianna Raye, Denny Fongheiser (Tracy Chapman, Juliana Hatfield), Christian Stone (Campfire Girls) and more....

Iyun

Brilliant!
This is one of my best buys ever! The album is totally brilliant, i listen to it everyday. Don't believe i can ever get tired of it..also ordered the ringside album based on this.

Steven Wong

Great! Fresh new sound, great album. A must have!
My pal Lee clued me in to Scott. I checked out his show at the Hotel Cafe a few weeks back and I thought, "wow!". Good song writer and performer, I bought two discs, one for work and one for home. I can't wait till the next live show! For the uninitiated, check him out! you will not regret it!

fontaine


Great record! His voice is one of a kind......

Tamara Turner, CD Baby


One of those artists who's not easily painted with words and labels but not so esoteric that he's above them either. Believe me, if you're anywhere in the neighborhood of a Tom Petty, Jack Johnson or Pete Yorn fan, or you just happen to take your Roots rock hearty, chunky and extra rich with influences from Elvis Costello, Jackson Browne, 60's pop and Alt. Country, this in an album and an artist you'll instantly relate to. Alternately mellow and visceral in swing-your-head-side-to-side grooves with straight out janglers, "Lovers and Thieves" refuses to be pigeon-holed in the alt. country, roots rock and folk rock arenas. It's just simply rugged but polished, earthy but uplifting. twangy but soothing. Give it a whirl.

Beck, Beatles, wilco, neil young, all my favourite artists are covered here!
Beck, Beatles, wilco, neil young, all my favourite "career" artists are covered here! Iwas a fan of his other c.d.s, "shine like you" and "california"' and I couldn't wait for more music. THANK YOU, SCOTT THOMAS FOR KEEPING IT REAL!!!!!!

p.s. check out 'hummig'. It's a religious experience.

Peter
