Having performed for audiences worldwide, Thomas is a unique force in modern jazz. His virtuosic playing of the steel pan has enabled him to connect emotionally with listeners on every level. As a native of the island of Trinidad, Thomas credits his parents for his musical voice and the pan yards of Trinidad and Tobago for his initial musical training. Thomas received a scholarship to attend Miami’s only Historically Black College/University, Florida Memorial University, where he was awarded the “Visual and Performing Arts Most Outstanding Student” and graduated with a Bachelor of Music degree. He then went on to earn his Master in Music degree from Florida International University.Thomas is a prominent figure in the Miami music scene, performing and recording with Jazz, Latin, Rock, Gospel and Hip-Hop artists. In 2010, Thomas released his first solo album titled “What You Don’t Know,” which perfectly illustrates his versatility and prowess of the various music genres. He continues to perform at various festivals and concerts around the world, as well as conducting clinics at various educational institutions on jazz, Caribbean music and the Steel Pan art form.
