Creating captivating songs with the use of his distinctive voice, memorable top lines and introspective lyrics, Thom’s debut single ‘I Have No Inspiration’, dominated the Czech charts for two years, becoming a domestic hit, and culminating with Thom winning two of the most prestigious Czech music awards. Inspired by British songwriters, he grew up busking in the streets of Prague, he first came to the attention when his song ‘Towards the Sun’ was chosen as the soundtrack for the Czech movie ‘Křídla Vánoc’, Thom then went on to release his debut EP ‘Still Standing in the Unknown’, before travelling and playing across Australia to hone his skills.
