Nigel Thomas is back and better than ever with his new album titled ‘Well Well’. Ever since our interview with him back in 2015 I’ve thought that Nigel is one of those rare talents that not only continuously grow musically, but is not afraid to grow. That is actually not all that common in the music industry. An artist might have some major success with a single or an album and finds it difficult to move forward stylistically because of fear of losing that audience. But Nigel embraces the change with 10 tracks of hook-filled original tracks that are as diverse within the album as the album is diverse within Nigel’s catalog.

One constant that I found in ‘Well Well’ is the ‘go left when I thought it would go right’ twists and turns musically that I found pleasantly unexpecting. Right down to the chord changes there are bits and pieces that I would have never expected but they are there and they fit perfectly. Not only outside of the box but, at times, all around it.

About Nigel Thomas

London based Anglo/Irish singer-songwriter and actor, Nigel Thomas will release his brand new album ‘Well Well’ on Keo Records on 13th September this year. Recorded in Southampton by Tali Trow and mixed and mastered by Sam Williams (Plan B, Gaz Coombes) in Oxford.

As the lead singer and songwriter for indie rock band The Foxes, Nigel enjoyed several UK Indie Chart top ten hits, toured the world and recorded and released an acclaimed album mixed by John Cornfield (Supergrass, Razorlight, Muse) at Sawmills Studios in Cornwall. After The Foxes disbanded, Nigel took the solo road, and to great success. Counting among his fans Blur’s Dave Rowntree and Indie mogul Alan McGee, the singer/ songwriter kick-started his solo career with hot debut, “Fever”. He followed the success of “Fever” and released his debut full length album ‘Travelling Man’ (recorded at Tilehouse Studios by Luke Oldfield (Mike’s son) and mastered by John Davis (Led Zeppelin, Lana Del Rey, U2, Kaiser Chiefs) at Metropolis) to critical acclaim in March 2016, enjoying TV and radio support.

Whilst touring the UK and Germany for his debut solo album, ‘Travelling Man’, Nigel earned numerous compliments in the media; “…when the delay warps his words, the tune gets filthier, it’s apparent we’re listening to a well-crafted corruption.” says God Is In The TV. When it comes to songwriting, Thomas has never been short of ingenuity. Apart from taking inspiration from musical heroes such as The Kinks or Elliott Smith, his debut album was also massively influenced by the literary work from Bukowski to Borroughs and Palahniuk… “…you get a feel for the gorgeous melodies that Thomas writes, mixing your late sixties with a bit of Britpop, honest lyrics, and familiar sounds are what get you hooked to Nigel Thomas.”

Former DJ/promoter of Death Disco with Danny Watson and Alan McGee, Nigel continues to DJ at venues across London.
