Joel Thomas is a twenty-two year old singer songwriter from Liverpool. The latest signing to Edge Hill University’s in-house record label, Joel has been playing the guitar for the last seven years and writing songs for three.
‘Sunshine Funshine’ is Joel’s first release on The Label Recordings. An infectious slice of Indie Pop, he says The Smiths were one of his biggest influences. “Because of their melodic guitar work and satirical lyrics” he explains. “That’s where I got the over the top chorus ‘as long as I’ve got you I don’t care if my skull caves in’ but musically this song is influenced by Ty Segall with his rough around the edges kind of style.”
Joel Thomas’ ‘Sunshine Funshine’ was released on The Label Recording’s Summer Sampler on June 2nd.
