Nigel says: “Stepping Up is about how having very little can help drive you forward and achieve creatively and how you appreciate and value the little things more when they're infrequent. Following on from that, when great things do happen you often don't know how to express yourself and speaking nonsense often the result”!
The London based singer/songwriter, DJ, actor and former NHS professional released his second album 'Well Well' on Keo Records late last year, with artwork specially painted by Eddie Argos from Art Brut. The album was mixed by Sam Williams (Plan B, Gaz Coombes etc) and is available on heavyweight vinyl, CD and download. The album has garnered several singles (including 'Alchemy Rose’ ‘I’ve Seen Forever’ and 'Your Fire') attracting strong regular radio airplay on a variety of stations from the BBC (Janice Long) to Kerrang! Radio (Johnny Doom). Ewen Macintosh (The Office) is such a fan he asked to be featured in a music video for Nigel, and stars in 'Smiling and Laughing'.
Although understandably his Spring performances have had to be cancelled, he's continued to entertain with popular live Facebook shows every Friday night, playing acoustic versions of his own music and favourite musicians.
'His new album is bright, intelligent, well-written rock/pop that should get him noticed and written about.' Mike Batt.
'A rhythmic, stylistic trophy full of catchy lyrics and relatable themes. A creative outlet of writing and music embodied in an album called well well. I am indeed talking about Nigel Thomas and his incredible new piece of work.' The Arts of Indie
'‘Well Well’ is a hugely enjoyable album, packed with energy and enthusiasm.' Right Chord Music
As the lead singer and songwriter for indie rock band The Foxes, Nigel enjoyed several UK Indie Chart top ten hits, toured the world and recorded and released an acclaimed album mixed by John Cornfield (Supergrass, Razorlight, Muse) at Sawmills Studios in Cornwall. After The Foxes disbanded, Nigel took the solo road, and to great success. Counting among his fans Mike Batt (who asked Nigel to sing in a special one-off performance of his new musical ‘Men Who March Away’ in 2017) Blur's Dave Rowntree and Indie mogul Alan McGee, Nigel followed the success of his first single "Fever" and released his debut full length album 'Travelling Man' (recorded at Tilehouse Studios by Luke Oldfield (Mike's son) and mastered by John Davis (Led Zeppelin, Lana Del Rey, U2, Kaiser Chiefs) at Metropolis) to critical acclaim in 2016, enjoying TV and radio support.
