Sam Thomas has been well cemented in the local music scene for a good few years now, from playing in metal, punk and indie bands, to solo acoustic guitar driven music he has been working hard for years. Having finally found his niche in the hip-hop world, he describes this current project as “the most enjoyable to date, I’m proud of the current work and super excited to see what’s to come.” Between working together on tracks and playing on the same live shows Sam Thomas has collaborated with hotly tipped North-East artists Kay Greyson, Eyeconic and Jack Fox but he’s now pushing forward to be the name on everybody’s lips.

Tell MoggBlog viewers about your latest release! What’s the inspiration behind that?
My latest release is called, “No More” Its a blend of spoken word and rap with a big climatic ending to finish. As the intensity builds in the lyrical content so does the dynamic of the song and thats something Im very proud of. It’s about looking back at where you’ve come from, the mistakes you’ve made etc. and making a proclamation to yourself that you wont be made to feel like that again. Its about empowerment and taking back control.
