If you’ve felt like you haven’t heard from Lancaster singer-songwriter Douglas Thomas in some time … it’s because you haven’t. Thomas has been living in the midwest studying for a Master’s degree in urban planning at the University of Michigan. Though his focus has been leaning heavily toward the academic, the multi-instrumentalist certainly hasn’t forsaken his music. As stated ever so poetically in his bio: “…where soundscapes inform his cityscapes, and vice versa.”

Impressively, Thomas has managed to find time to write and record his sophomore EP – Gone to Seed – in the midst of his studies. It comes just two years after dropping his debut EP, Trimmings. Tonight, Thomas debuts the new material at the Chameleon Club as part of a 10-day release tour. Mount Gomery, Stereoma and Renne open the show.

While the album has been recorded already, Thomas is just days away from wrapping up a Kickstarter campaign seeking financial backing to cover production costs – mixing, mastering, producing and promoting.

Take a listen to the single “Amphibious” – a swirling orchestral piece showcasing Thomas’ heartfelt lyricism and adept piano-playing.


Douglas Thomas headlines the Chameleon Club (223 N. Water St., Lancaster) tonight. 7:30pm doors. $10. All ages. Click here for tickets.
