"IT'S EASIER TO REMEMBER SOMETHING IF YOU TURN IT INTO A SONG."

- G.T. THOMAS

Amsterdam-based recording/ performing artist G.T. Thomas goes over revelations from her daily journals with a highlighter pen, and transforms them into memorable refrains on her album of PROGRESSIVE LOUNGE POP songs, entitled "I Am a Highlighter Pen" (release: November 8, 2019 – available in the shop, here).

G.T. Thomas is a one-woman-show, thoughtfully rearranging the self-produced tracks off her album for her live solo act on bass, synth, drum machine, and voice –which she plays simultaneously (no computers, no loopers)– proving that even having collaborated with Fleet Foxes, the Metropole Orchestra, Benny Sings, and members of The B-52s, Steely Dan, and Pedro the Lion, she's never lost her love of doing everything herself.

Her current work is heavily inspired by fellow simultiinsrumentalists Nate Wood (fOUR) and Catriona Sturton, creative mastermind Jim Henson (The Muppets), and her longest standing musical hero Donald Fagen (Steely Dan).

"NOWADAYS, WHEN PEOPLE ASK ME WHAT I'VE GOT UP MY SLEEVE, I KEEP FINDING... MY OWN ARMS."

- G.T. THOMAS
