Thomas began playing the bass guitar at age 8, by age 12 he was assembled a 12 piece band and had become fluent in lead guitar, bass guitar, keyboards, acoustic and electric guitar as well as drums. The amazing fact is that Thomas is self-taught. Stanley E Alston aka Spirit has been singing since the tender age of three, getting paid since the age of thirteen. His voice is described as electrifying and with his year on earth - he is truly a phoneme. He is a poet, and an author of two books.
