Rhythms Magazine has likened Dean Thomas to Eric Clapton doing JJ Cale. It’s a reference that sits very comfortably with Dean’s second CD release – “She’s On The Other Side”. The influence of Mark Knopfler is also obvious.
Elements of blues, country and jazz intertwine in eleven well-crafted songs that take you on a diverse journey from the story of rock ‘n’ roll to crack cocaine addiction and some interesting places in between.
Dean’s cool vocals and playing infuse each story with an obvious blues tradition.
