Thomas Oliver is an award-winning singer-songwriter who is also internationally recognised as one of the world’s leading players of the Weissenborn lap-steel guitar.
Last year, he was awarded the prestigious APRA Silver Scroll Award for his hit, 'If I Move To Mars', which features on his brand new album, Floating In The Darkness, which showcases his distinctive blend of Roots, Soul, Folk and Electronic music.
In 2013, Thomas released the world's first full-length, all-instrumental, all-Weissenborn album in 2013, titled Beneath The Weissenborn. The album debuted at #6 on the NZ charts, received 5 star reviews, and sold out shows across the nation.
With over two million views on his YouTube channel, Thomas has developed an international audience from his home base in New Zealand, and has performed throughout New Zealand, Australia, Europe and Vietnam, and has toured and shared the stage with such legends as Joe Cocker, Eric Clapton and Fat Freddy's Drop.
His vast diversity in his vocal delivery has also earned him a reputation as a vocalist in Drum & Bass and other electronic music, and his list of collaborations includes some of DnB's most respected producers, including Black Sun Empire, Nu:Tone, Logistics, Rido, Trei, State OF Mind, Concord Dawn and Urbandawn, and boasts releases on prestigious labels including Hospital Records, RAM Records, and Metalheadz.
