"Jefferson Thomas directed the music video for 'Greyhound Bus' himself, and in the clip he shows us the lights of NYC, a down-at-the-heels road in the country, and the green metal of the prison cell. He allows us to see the allure of the prostitute while showing us the danger she’s facing. Nothing’s been sugarcoated and we’re left to draw our own conclusions about what happens next."
- VENTS MAGAZINE
"Keeping fans on the edges of their seats with a cogent narrative and a hooky chorus, Jefferson makes sure that all boxes are ticked"
- INDI-MUSIC TV
"The characters in Jefferson Thomas' new single 'Greyhound Bus' are drawn from his real-life experiences, and he brings those to life with colour and detail – and a lot of compassion, too. He chronicles the life of the jail inmate; the prostitute; and the jaded kid who’d been chasing his destiny in the bright lights and big city."
- ESSENTIALLY POP
"Sixteen Sundays, the latest Jefferson Thomas album, is every bit as thoughtful as his prior albums were; what's different this time is that he's floored the gas pedal, and he never lets up for a moment."
- OPSIKPRO INFO
"On the one hand, Jefferson’s “blue-eyed soul” music is straight-ahead rootsy-Americana-rock. On the other hand, it’s a sound not easily categorized, blending indie-rock, alt-pop, country rock, and R&B into deliciously contagious sonic creations. In the end, though, no matter how you label it, Jefferson Thomas’ music links up with the heart of America." - MEDIUM.COM
"Thomas tells these stories in the bracing, tough-minded, forthright way he always has. The music is two-fisted, full-throated American rock with a crisp backbeat and melodies as wide, broad, and appealing as the open road."
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT JEFFERSON THOMAS…
“A complete scrapbook of American influence; heartfelt songs written in motel parking lots; observations of the American mindset and landscape; country-tinged bourbon and beer-soaked blues. He switches from guitar to piano for Hometown Hotel and All I Ever Wanted from the Play Hurt album, but it is the blues guitar work that works the best, especially in the highly personalised covers of The Beatles' Get Back and Hendrix's Red House. All the self-penned songs (including the hit Jacksonville) sit comfortably amidst such distinguished company.”
