"Great Southern Rock in its traditional form." --Bobby Whitlock/Derek & the Dominos ******** "Will Thomas is the Real Deal." --Chuck Leavell/Allman Bros, Rolling Stones
NOTES
Recorded with the Southern Fried Danish over two shows at Vega Music Hall, Copenhagen, Denmark. 2003.

"In the music world there are so many cliches it's downright obnoxious if you're one of us non-mainstreamers who knows better. When it comes to Southern Rock I think it's time we gave the old school a break, with continued respects, but allow some new blood to continue the tradition and add their names to the history book.

Listening now to " Will Thomas - Live In Copenhagen " for the umpteenth time, I sure know where my vote goes. This epitome of Southern Rock moves me like nothing I've heard in ages. Searing guitars, horns, piano, and a geyser hot rhythm section compliment Will's emotion grit vocals thru this showcase of his fine original music, and one cover.

This is a damn near Jazz Fusion Live Party no Southern Rock lover should be without. Behind the beat you'll find Sequoia Tree deep global roots. From a Swedish fan, to Mexican food in Denmark. From a group of the finest musicians in Scandinavia, to the King of Roots Music, DJ Ray Pieters of Belgium. From Italy, Alabama, to The Lone Star State Of Texas. Invoking the title " Global Southern Rock " to Will Thomas is my conclusion."

"...with young artists like Will Thomas recording, there's no doubt whatsoever that the stars do indeed continue to fall on Alabama to this very day."--Goldmine Magazine, March 2001

"When a CD can be opened to any cut on the disc and each song sounds fresh and lively, there's a reason to look hard and listen clearly. This set is a winner." --Gritz Magazine, October 2000

"an album at the crossroads of singer/song writer, southern rock and R&B...Thomas sings in an impassioned gritty fashion..."--Rhythms Magazine Australia, November 2000

Will Thomas Bio

Will Thomas carries the mantle of what he calls Alabama Music: a mixture of blues, country, Southern Rock, folk, and R&B. He grew up in Alabama and returned to his roots to record two CDs, "I Will Not Look Like Them" (1997) and "Alabama Day" (2000). The players on Will's two albums read like a Muscle Shoals "All-star" list including Wayne Perkins on guitar and Spooner Oldham on keyboards; they've appeared on albums with the Rolling Stones, Bob Marley, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Neil Young, and Aretha Franklin.

Will graduated from the Miami Blues scene as front man for The Tall Boys Blues Band to a young solo career that has taken him from New York (Mercury Lounge, CB Gallery) to Nashville (Bluebird Café) and Europe. In 2002, Will toured Italy and Scandinavia, part of which is captured on his new release "Live in Copenhagen" due early 2003.
