Del Thomas released his first solo album ‘Driving Home Alone’ in 2013. The album contained a mix of songs written from his own personal experience, observation of other people’s situations and ideas that might have germinated from a throwaway line in an overheard comment in someone else’s conversation in the street or on a train – or in the case of one new song, from the title of a TV comedy show!

The songs may be about lost love and broken relationships but none had a ‘woe is me, pass me
another bottle’ feel. Even when the lyrics hint at dark times staring the listener in the face, Del presents the songs with an up-tempo beat, catchy chorus and bluesy guitar hooks.

Since releasing the album, Del has taken the music around the country and wherever he’s played,
the songs have been well received as they’re written in a way that everyone can relate to. So much
so that several of the songs have received regular rotation on various internet radio stations as well
as sales of the album being achieved as far afield as Brazil and Sweden as well as NZ and Australia.
