Ryan Thomas is a 21 year old singer-songwriter hailing from Nottingham, UK. His combination of blues, country and folk have marked him as one of the Midlands rising stars with influences from Robert Johnson, Seasick Steve and Johnny Cash. Having recently signed to Wire & Wool Records (I’m Not From London), Ryan’s first record ‘Worries & Troubles’ debuted at No.1 on the iTunes Blues Chart.
2013 saw regular BBC Introducing airplay for Ryan as well as slots at some of the Midlands most prestigious venues working with major promoters in venues such as Rescue Rooms and Glee Club. Ryan made appearances at Dot To Dot Festival, The Big Shake Out and Splendour 2013 as well as being pitted as ‘One To Watch’ by Left Lion Magazine.
“The sound of Bluesy folk artist Ryan Thomas will blow you away. His Seasick Steve like vocals coupled with the sound of his bling resonator guitar is a catch. A born performer, Ryan Thomas’ performance is spellbinding.”
“In fact, if it’s modern blues you’re looking for, you can’t go far wrong with this record. Chuck it on while you’re having a bottle of beer and a cigarette, then listen to it again when your head’s pounding the next morning.”
