WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT JEFFERSON THOMAS…
"Blues Traveler’s John Popper adds extra sauce to Rocket Rider, the already-saucy new release from Jefferson Thomas"
- RELIX MAGAZINE
"Shot in Atlanta, New Orleans, Greenville, and New York, The Switch chronicles the haphazard exploits of a star-crossed modern-day Bonnie-and Clyde couple, narrated by Thomas in a boozy, detached, third-person rendering."

There was a lot of analysis and strategy on the last two albums", says Thomas, "and when you do that you start second-guessing all your instincts and your gut decisions, and your music starts to sound careful. This one doesn’t sound careful to me, it sounds seat-of-the-pants. We started recording most of the songs before I was even done writing them."
- TALENT IN BORDERS (FULL INTERVIEW)
"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."

“It’s always a great audience when Jefferson plays our ‘Geyser By The Sea’ outdoor concert series.”
- JAKOB SPEAKE, KULTURHUSET ISLANDS BRYGGE TALENT BUYER, COPENHAGEN, DENMARK
"A hybrid-filled harmony exhibition from a singer/songwriter clearly on the cusp of something great. Thomas is at the forefront of his scene, and as an indie player, he presents listeners with more artistic credibility than I was expecting to hear."

“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.”
