The story of this powerhouse acoustic duo began in 2015 in Los Angeles, CA at the Artist Relations Endorse Expo where Thomas would first meet the exceptionally gifted, April Henry. At the event, the two heard each other perform for the first time, each impressed with the other's vocal abilities. The following year at the same event, they would speak again, doing an interview together for RockStarDreams.com.
During the Fall months of 2016, as The NAMM Show 2017 drew closer, the two discussed bringing their vocal abilities together for a handful of performances in California at the world's largest music merchants convention, working up a handful of songs both covers and originals. After great feedback and positive reviews, the two decided to occasionally book performances and focus on the FUN. Making sure everything is always, "Fanmazing"!

Starting in May, Thomas & April will be touring the East Coast, performing in cities such as:
