Biography

Aaron Thomas’s voice “seems to come from the center of his heart.” –Amy Raasch

As a young boy Aaron Thomas was often seen by his parents standing in front of the stereo speakers absorbing the vibrations of whatever vinyl was on the record player. An obsession with music ranging from Jeff Beck to Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young was begun.

Having picked up the guitar before most boys learn to throw a baseball, Aaron developed an addiction to music.

After playing in college bands, The Troubadours, junegroove and The Brakemen, which carried him all over the east coast, Aaron Struck out on his own as a solo artist.

Aaron Thomas’s music is hard to put in any category. It is deeply personal and deeply emotional. Drawing from the inluences of old and the progression of the new, Aaron chooses to share his heart when he shares his music; and his lyric and melody are clear.

What brings the honesty of Aaron Thomas’s voice into full bloom is a deftness and maturity with the guitar. His notes are chosen wisely, his chord progressions intelligent and his patience apparent.

Over the years Aaron Thomas has shared the stage with notable musicians like Over The Rhine, Caedmon’s Call, Tom Conlon, Jason Harrod, Harrod and Funck, Miranda Stone, and Gordon Stone.

Lyrics

Holding On

Written By: Aaron Thomas

Growing up with folks who thought they knew my thought, assumed what I was supposed to do. But, when it all comes down, there's only one way to choose.

When it gets burned and grows back again. When it fades away and then rears its head. The blood that runs is what stuck to the souls of my shoes.

I am holding on.
Looking for something new.

Turning back on years have past me since. I am struck with loss of innocence and confined to boxed placed around my head.

In the things I've kept from you and all the things I give in to. I hope what you are is enough to save us all.

I am holding on.
Looking for something true.
