Since March 2012 when Thomas first started on Liverpool's open-mic scene he has toured the UK with China Crisis, Ian McNabb & The Vinyls. He has also opened up for Steve Cradock, Ian McCulloch & Ian Broudie, The Pretty Things and The Real People. His most recent EP, "Worried About Thomas McConnell" was released in August 2013 to critical acclaim. His eclectic sound is influenced by Rock/Pop of the 20th century in particular, The Beatles. He plays all his own instruments on recordings, writing and arranging every part.
Mojo Magazine featured Thomas & Ian McNabb's cover of The Beatles', "All I've Got To Do" in their August 2013 issue and attached CD, "We're With The Beatles". A video of Thomas performing Paul McCartney's, "New" the day the song was released was shared by Paul himself on his official Facebook and Twitter pages. The story was featured in the Liverpool Echo and led to him meeting and being recognised by Paul at his BBC Radio 6 gig/Q&A in October 2013. Recently, he has become one of the youngest musicians to be endorsed by Hofner Guitars.
