On his latest album, SALADO, Thomas plays with a variety of fun musical ideas from Riding on a Train to Retirement Blues along with an eclectic variety of songs in between. He has widened the emotional scope of his songwriting to include concerns for the environment and the people around him. From Violeta, honoring the life of Chilean Artist Violeta Parra, to a plea to those choosing to ignore the challenges facing our planet in Denial, and ending the album with Look At My Hands, he illustrates his depth of feeling about these subjects.
Produced by well know Austin multi-instrumentalist, Chris Gage and recorded at Austin's Moonhouse Studio, SALADO features an expansive variety of instrumental contributions from Gage, along with the tasteful vocal support of Kristin deWitt, the spot on drumming and percussion from Paul Pearcy, and fluid base lines from Glenn Fukunaga. Together, this combo creates an intricate waevin of sounds to help support RpT's vocals and soaring melodies.
