BIO

G.T. Thomas is an American-Dutch musician making songs that fall under the "Eclectic" umbrella, with influences of Lounge, Electronica, and Jazz.

Her work ranges stylistically across four albums to reveal her many facets as a producer, songwriter, vocalist, arranger, and multi-instrumentalist, garnering her comparisons to Goldfrapp, Kate Bush, and even “the Muppets on acid” (by music blog 3voor12).

On her 2019 album "I Am a Highlighter Pen," Thomas took her audience on a journey of fluorescent ideas and unexpected chord progressions, capped off with philosophical thought experiments (explored in her puppet video mini-series "9 Thought Experiments").

She's currently working on a new EP, inspired by five books she read in an attempt to gain context about some of the musical influences in her life. The writing and recording of this album is funded in part by the Dutch musicians' rights organizations Buma/Stemra and Sena, and her patrons on Patreon.

G.T. Thomas has performed from Seattle, to NYC, Amsterdam, and beyond and collaborated with artists like Fleet Foxes, Benny Sings, The Metropole Orchestra, and members of The B-52s and Steely Dan. Her own live act has ranged from a pop orchestra of 13 people, to performing as a one-woman-band on vocals, bass, synthesizer, and drum machine (which she plays simultaneously).

She also fulfills commissions to compose and perform minimalist, meditative, and sometimes danceable excursions on her semi-modular synth system, and/ or present workshops on this composition and performance process, including past presentations for Dutch Modular Festival, Byrdcliffe Artist Residency, Female Frequency, and SUNY New Paltz Advanced Electronic Music Program.

For the first time in 5 years, I've got availability to take on a few one-on-one students! Would you like to explore if studying with me would be a good fit for you?

That way we can see how I can help you grow in your music practice and get clearer on expressing your musical vision! Subjects range from: synthesizers, to song craft, to simulti-instrumentalism, to creativity and motivation. Find out more details about each area of study by clicking here!

NOTE: It's been 5 years since I made it possible to study with me, so don't miss this chance. Looking forward to connecting with you!

Want to get highlights and perspectives from G.T.?

Yeah, sounds rad!
