New Thomas White Cover

Thomas writes: Second of two Fountains of Wayne covers I did last year to pay tribute to Adam Schlesinger. I struggled to find a home for them then my friend Mark offered to make them part of his Friday Covers series, which was just so obviously perfect, he being the person who basically introduced me to FoW….

New Thomas White Cover

Thomas writes: On the anniversary of Adam Schlesinger’s untimely passing, here’s a cover of Fountains Of Wayne’s gorgeous i-95, recorded specially for The Friday Covers project (all proceeds go to HelpMusicians)… I think this is the first thing I’ve put out (musically) since last April, so here goes… Enjoy 🙂

Thee Infinite Kiss

Update from Thomas White on Thee Infinite Kiss:

This is now available as audio only, in six bitesize thirty-minute chunks. Roughly seventeen years of musical exploration that didn’t make it onto an album proper, condensed into a three-hour mixtape. I can’t stress enough – if you’re interested in what I do, this shows about a million times more of the process than most of any finished albums do. Some of it is kinda cringe and I love that. Some of it is pure head music too.

P.S. Well done America ❤

Thomas White produces Ella Janes

Last year I spent a handful of days up in the softly rolling Cotswold hills with Ella and engineer Hugh Fielding making this record – my first production work outside of my own bands/projects. The record is out today and it’s wonderful to see it finally emerge out into the world. I really fell for Ella’s songs and singing/playing. She is unflinching when it comes to writing from the heart about deeply personal stuff, and I think if you’re going to choose to work in an area as potentially un-challenging as the world of singer-songwriters, this sort of needs to be a prerequisite. Needless to say, the songs are incredibly deep, personal, full of bright detail and underscored by her painterly arrangements. Everything just so, nothing extraneous. It was a total pleasure to be involved and I’m super proud of how the record turned out. Big love. Give it a spin….. Thomas xxx
