Singer-songwriter Thad will perform at Grey Eagle on May 23 in support of his brand new EP "West Coast." Known for his most recent work as the lead singer of LEAGUES, the songs on West Coast offer a glimpse into THAD’s evolution as an artist and his most vulnerable fully realized songwriting to date.
Thad inspires his audience to dream outside their means through thoughtful interpretation of relatable circumstance.
The songs on West Coast share a common thread of creating connection, and for THAD, sharing his journey with others who he hopes will in turn feel a little less alone. “Fill My Cup” (Aka Walking To A City) sums up the struggle many artists encounter, being inspired to continue making music when you feel like you’re not moving forward. “Susie From The West Coast” is a song about falling in love when you’re least looking for it, and perhaps the first true love song that THAD feels he’s ever written. “All I Want” is an inner narrative about actual needs in life and the internal struggle of trying not to seem needy.
THAD was inspired to create LEAGUES in 2013 during a year of much needed space back home in North Carolina. The band debuted on the Billboard Heatseekers Charts and went on to connect with radio, film and TV. At the same time, THAD began writing a collection of new songs that didn’t fit the band’s sound. A more personal solo statement, he knew that these songs were the beginning of the next chapter in his career.
THAD will be releasing a full-length album this fall. Come hear him life on Thursday, May 23 at 9 p.m. Tickets cost $17-$20. Purchase them online at http://www.thegreyeagle.com/event/1844701-thad-asheville/.
