About Thomas 甘 Kam
Thomas started life as a poet and classical pianist, with these interests eventually converging into his current work as a singer/songwriter and performer. Thomas brings his background in classical and jazz piano, folk guitar and page poetry to form a unique style of music, overlaid with his powerful , expressive voice. His music has been described as “Leonard Cohen meets Ludivoci Einaudi meets Jeff Buckley”.
In 2017 Thomas spent 9 months being treated for leukaemia in isolation. Much of his current work is a response to this experience. Thomas created Dear Lady Death, a one-man show based on songs and poems written during his illness and recovery. He has given talks about his experiences, and written essays on the subject (which are available here).
Thomas hosts The Making Tracks Podcast, in which he interviews musicians about the story behind a song, their life story, philosophy, psychology, spirituality and more. He is also developing Travelosophy, a series which is part travel vlog, part arts documentary.
