Growing up in Seattle, I was exposed to many styles of music from the
greats like Mozart, the Beatles, Jellyfish, Enya, Supertramp, ELO, Roxy
music and many others too numerous to include. You can hear these
influences coming through the emotions in how I tell a story.
If you enjoy Cirque Du Soleil, Mozart, Animusic, and Enya, you will connect
with my music.
People who are closest to me know that composing is the easiest, hardest
work I do. In other words, it is such a deep passion that it's not work, it's
channeling.... it just "shows up". What is required is a laser focus, attention
to detail and an unrelenting drive for creating perfection, all fueled by having
the patience of a Saint for getting it right.
Simply put, I am a story-teller through sound. How do I create the deepest
emotion to tell the story? What instruments do I combine that will extract
the greatest emotional impact? Do I use inversions, sus4 chords, variants,
or passing tones? What is the motive? When are they used and at what times
in the song?
With talent, developed over a long period of time, the stories you tell get really
good with characters that express more, but say less. As a footnote, a special
thank you to my fans for without you, none of this would be possible.
As you embark on this journey, let the songs take you away. Let go…. relax and
enjoy….. The Thomas Project music.
