Niall Thomas has just released his debut album Breathe Easy in April 2013. It was engineered and produced by Karl Odlum who has worked and performed with artists such as Gemma Hayes, The Frames, Declan O`Rourke. The album was mastered in Abbey Road Studios by Steve Rooke Mastering Engineer for The Beatles, The Cure and Wilco. Breathe Easy is a collection of ten songs and features Karl Odlum, Martin McCann, Petra Odlozilikova, Scott Davis, Kevin Murphy, Aidan Courtney and Christophe Capewell all of whom have lent their time and talent to the recording.
“With an engaging vocal style, not unlike that of Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy (with echoes at times of Tim Buckley and Canadian legend Gordon Lightfoot), his songs are in the main melancholic and moving, with more shade than light; although ‘Spillin’ Diamonds’, a recent single, is an exception. A jaunty shuffle, with a country fiddle, it comes across like something from The Band’s Basement Tapes. The Dylan-esque title-track is another tune rooted in classic Americana, while ‘Handle It’ could be a Crosby, Stills & Nash outtake. Beautifully produced by Karl Odlum and mastered at Abbey Road, it’s a fine sounding record.” HOTPRESS
