Niall Thomas released his debut album “Breathe Easy” in April 2013. Hot Press compared his songwriting to such luminaries as Crosby, Stills and Nash and Bob Dylan with others likening his work to that of the late great John Martyn. The album was playlisted on RTE Radio 1 and received extensive airplay on BBC Radio including a live performance on BBC Radio Ulster. Niall is currently putting the finishing touches to his new record which will be released in 2017.
"With an engaging vocal style....his songs are in the main melancholic and moving, with more shade than light; although ‘Spillin’ Diamonds’, an exception, comes across like something from The Band’s Basement Tapes. The Dylan-esque title-track is another tune rooted in classic Americana, while ‘Handle It’ could be a Crosby, Stills & Nash outtake. Beautifully produced by Karl Odlum and mastered at Abbey Road, it’s a fine sounding record."
"haunting ruminations on fate and possibility.....a cut above"
"effortless and raw vocals that have you hanging on every word....fantastic musicianship"
"with a musical style resembling that of John Martyn.....captivating tunes....effortless vocal style"
