Hi my name’s Thomas Brian.
I'm a self contained acoustic guitar vocalist and I've made a living as a performing musician for over ten years.
I can provide you with a night of uptempo and well known songs to get the whole dancefloor grooving, or instead I can also provide a chilled lounge set for the perfect ambience of your event.
I’m originally from Leicester but I’ve lived in Greater Manchester since 2007 when I moved up north to study music at Salford University. Since then I’ve been very active in the Manchester music scene, playing in a variety of function bands, originals bands and acoustic ensembles.
In the summers of 2015 and 2019 I spent several months as the resident guitar vocalist at Caldera Palace, a 5* Thomson resort in Crete. This was a big learning curve for me as it allowed me to improve my playing, having to perform up to four sets a night, six nights a week to a widely varied audience.
I look forward to hearing from you!

Thomas was excellent, he was there before time he kept us informed by email and text on when he would arrive, what music we wanted, when he was setting out, his voice is wonderful and he is not noisy, I have had clubs and bars all my life and I would recommend him to anyone.
