Matthew Thomas, an emerging Americana singer-songwriter, has crafted a musical journey that’s as authentic as it is emotionally charged.

This bold leap into the unknown marked the beginning of a new chapter in his musical career. Having fronted nationally touring pop-rock bands and worked with Grammy-winning producers, he took a courageous step towards discovering his own musical identity.
Now, in 2023, Matthew Thomas is ready to release ‘Mustangs & Thoroughbreds, Vol. 2,’ a continuation of his musical odyssey.
