Thief & the Magpie
The Title for the album, was borrowed from an Elvis Costello quote in which he stated 'Every musician is a thief and a magpie.' A statement which influenced and describes the way in which Thomas explores new directions in composition and performance. Each track for the project was approached from a unique perspective. Some songs being influenced by previous projects or ideas, while others were created in an impromptu flurry. Eventually creating a tapestry of music that while varied from song to song has an overall threaded continuity.
