Niall Thomas is a Dublin based Musician and Songwriter who released his second studio album ‘Night Sky Blue’ in April 2018 receiving a glowing 4 Star Review from The Irish Times with comparisons being drawn to the late great John Martyn and Nick Drake. Renowned for his intricate guitar stylings and his mellifluous voice Niall will be performing a select number of intimate shows in first few months of 2019 bringing songs from 'Night Sky Blue' and some new material ahead of his return to the studio later this Spring to commence the recording of his third album.
“Night Sky Blue is a heart-warming selection of tender songs about daily life, human resilience and love and loss in Dublin’s north inner city…….very pleasing shades of Nick Drake and John Martyn…. a moving paean to Dublin’s fair city, and life itself.
★★★★ The Irish Times
“The songs demonstrate that is a man who has a keen eye on the human condition...as these are pieces of work displaying real depth and feeling…...like many proper albums as opposed to collections of songs, this is one that takes a time to get to know and grows on the listener after a few plays. Very much in the style of Nick Drake, this will definitely be one for you if that is your thing.
★★★★ Americana Uk
"With an engaging vocal style, his songs are in the main melancholic and moving, with more shade than light; a fine sounding record”
"haunting ruminations on fate and possibility.... a cut above"
"vocals that have you hanging on every word...fantastic musicianship"
