Earl Thomas @ Spiegeltent

Earl Thomas @ Spiegeltent image

Calling Earl Thomas a “blues singer” is kind of like saying Coltrane was a saxophonist. The Best of Blues Awards called him “one of the most important blues figures of this decade”. His music is a cross-section of old and new blues, funk, and soul, with Thomas’ voice by turns commanding, playful, and powerfully raw.

His band – always the best – are tight, slick and carry a mean punch, which is just as well, because across blues standards and originals, Thomas is the sharpest singer you can hear in 2018 Blues.
