Gurdan Thomas heißt der Mann mit der Gitarre, liebe Regine. Engländer, der wohl gerade durch Deutschland tingelt und nun nach drei Monaten München in Stuttgart gelandet ist. Singer/ Songwriter trifft’s wohl am besten. Er alleine mit der Gitarre (bei einem Stück am Klavier) in oben beschriebener Kulisse. Sieht toll aus und klingt auch mindestens genauso gut. Sehr musikalisch der Mann, kann außerdem auch einiges an der Gitarre, so dass die Musik zum Glück nicht in allzu banalem Folk versinkt, sondern richtig interessant ist und sehr Laune macht. - The Wagon in Stuttgart

Bio

Gurdan Thomas are a musical collective that were formed in Birmingham, UK in 2007. Their music can be described as alternative eccentric with strong catchy yet unpredictable songs that borrow elements from many genres. The core members of the group are 4 mutli-instrumentalists that between them play guitar, piano, clarinet, flute, recorder, sax, drums, bass. trombone, cornet, banjo, mandolin, cello and ukulele amongst a few other more unusual instruments such as ocarina, kazoo, EWI and white tub. Although Gurdan often performs with musicians he meets on his travels across Europe, or sometimes solo - one thing that makes the music interesting live is that the arrangements can be so different.

Having produced 2 self released albums, Graceful Rabbits (2007) and Gnodelly Gnodelly (2008) they will be releasing the 3rd album 'the Fat Lady Sings' on Commercially Inviable Records (UK) Spring 2010. 'The Fat Lady Sings' was recorded partly in England in a Ger (Yurt), a van, in the Villa Waldbertha in Munich, but most was created at the Meier farm in Stockau, Bavaria along with performances from musician / farmers Wastl and Katl Meier.
Their music has been given airplay on NPR (National Public Radio - USA). They have graced the stages of the Gigbeth Festival (2007), The Soho Ottakring Festival in Vienna, The Suq Festival in Genoa, The Pro Etnica Festival in Sighisoara (Romania) and The Moseley Folk Festival (UK).
Gurdan recently performed at the Suq Festival as part of the MELT project having spent some time working with musicians from Munich, Vienna, Istanbul, Genoa, Sighisoara and Birmingham.
Gurdan has performed as part of label buddy James Summerfield's band and will be touring this year with Vroni von Quast to promote her new record with Sony.
