TNB draws on a solid crop of influences – from Foo Fighters to Switchfoot to Springsteen. He’s learned the art of writing a pop song while keeping a foot in Rock’n'Roll. His music is polished
for the radio, but raw enough to sound honest. He has been performing original music for 16 years. The energy he brings to each onstage performance is undeniable.
Thomas pens songs about all kinds of revolutions-from personal and emotional revelations to perspectives changing on a mass scale. However, the riff is just as mighty as the word for Thomas, and there’s no shortage of infectious, soulful rock on the new EP. “My Generation” is the rock anthem for his peers, while “Love and Hate” pulsates with palpable sonic energy. This album stands out as a declaration for the Thomas Nicholas Band, so listen up…
After 2008?s WithoutWarning and 2010?s Heroes Are Human, Thomas crafted a record that incorporated his influences while further developing his own style. Those influences cascade together that creates something vibrant and alive. Thomas describes his sound best. “I think of it as John Mayer writing the melody, Bruce Springsteen singing and The Foo Fighters backing it all up. The new material definitely feels that way. It’s a little heavier, but it still has that pop influence.”
“… I’m running all of my sites and answering people on facebook and twitter. I’m not going to have someone pretend they’re me.”
The new record definitely juxtaposes emotions in a seamless fashion. Thomas allows fans deeper into his world as well. From starring in everything from Rookie of the Year to the American Pie series, he’s been a part of the pop culture zeitgeist since he was a kid, and his new music reflects his experience. “On the new record, we want to show that soul we have on stage. I feel like the first record was mixed to be ‘radio-ready’ in some ways. This is raw. People don’t feel like they can typically interact with an actor, but I’m doing this 100 percent myself. There’s a pre-conceived notion that actors are untouchable, but I’m running all of my sites and answering people on facebook and twitter. I’m not going to have someone pretend they’re me. There’s a big difference between how music speaks to your soul and how movies interact with you. You don’t drive down the road and suddenly have a memory of your favorite movie.
