First inspired by gospel, then by blues, Dave Thomas picked up his first guitar at the age of 12.

Music has been at the centre of his life ever since.  From his first group, Skid Row, when he was a teenager in Newport, through Blonde On Blonde, Reign, Double Trouble, Shortstuff and The Diplomatics to the present day with The Dave Thomas Band, performance has been the heart of what he does.  He has worked with some of the finest musicians in this country and in the US and has produced several critically acclaimed albums of original and traditional blues.
