Info for The Cardiac Hotel

Since quitting the kind of life lived by the rest of us in January 2014, Thomas has played over 300 shows, supporting Rob Lynch, Northcote and PJ Bond among others. He released his debut album Symptoms late 2014, a full-band affair crafted from analogue sounds. Comparisons to Elliot Smith and Simon & Garfunkel followed, as well as more shows and more opportunities to revel in community and friendship.

After a hefty 2015 touring schedule, he felt the need for a shift in goals and mindset. Second album The Cardiac Hotel was expedited and creatively driven by Thomas's dad getting sick, the songs pouring forth as they tend to do when a loved one's future is uncertain. It's hard not to listen to The Lion and the Wolf's second album and not feel a little of that seismic shift yourself. It feels fragile while wrapping itself in a strength of heart, a certain courage needed to bare the soul or strip down to honesty. The Cardiac Hotel is still warm though, never feeling disconnected from the listener, probably because of the lack of digital interference. And that's important because The Lion and the Wolf is all about intimacy and understanding. You'll never be alone with The Lion and the Wolf, and you'll never have to feel that way now you're part of the pride and pack.

"A wholly autumnal, acoustic-led slice of melancholy…one of the UK’s most promising singer-songwriters" (Rock Sound)

“One hell of a folk-rock ride" (Hit The Floor)

"'Symptoms’ is an accomplished album from one of the most underrated singer songwriters in the UK today. It’s poignant, mature, and the perfect soundtrack for the long winter ahead" (Punktastic)

“Gentle vocals and lilting drive call to mind Elliot Smith and Simon and Garfunkel” - The Independent

"An elegantly understated and wistfully melancholic collection of prime-cut songs in the singer-songwriter vein" (Musical Melting Pot)
