Sam Thomas biography
Sam THOMAS's remarkable musical journey began with being born into a musical home environment, his mother being a former opera singer who now gave piano lessons. He started by taking percussion lessons at the age of four, which inevitably led to drum kit ['That was more fun as a kid.'] Despite his best efforts to take up more tuneful classical disciplines such as piano, Sam found reading non-linear notation impossible due [he suspects] to his dyslexia, so set about learning them in his own way.

By the time he was a teenager, Sam was teaching himself guitar, piano and bass ['in my own way, by ear'], playing in his school?s swing band and orchestra, while singing in the choir. 'I grew up listening to classical music; I'm classically trained, to an extent, but I'm also into rock.'

Sam created music throughout university, starting with grand visions that seem to have imbued his self-education and musical ambitions. Sam composed and recorded an 18-minute track, for which he recruited the folk/grime duo iAm1 to add vocals to the instrumental; they played this live for a time under the band name Samandiam. Later projects included a 3-piece heavy instrumental group called Saiga and also a 27-minute solo instrumental piece.

Refreshingly, his diverse musical influences as a child left him with a healthy disregard for musical barriers. While composing such epics, Sam developed his heavy rock streak [initially derived from playing drums in a blues band which led to a fixation his 'holy trinity' of Led Zeppelin, Guns 'n' Roses and, particularly, mid-period Pink Floyd, his biggest influence.]

Armed with his 27-minute composition, he decide...
