Thomas Khan performed in concert at “We Are Paris” in complete privacy. The artist unveiled his new track “Don’t Look At Me”, taken from his second album: This is Real.
Thomas Khan learned by imitating great voices, intonations and facial expressions in order to immerse himself in this music in which he finds the values that are dear to him, that speak to him. After a chaotic adolescence and schooling, he decided to refocus on music.
Thomas Khan is a French singer, songwriter and guitarist. The artist is from Clermont-Ferrand. He was immersed in music from an early age (15 years old): His guitarist father and his bass player brother, both amateur musicians. Thomas Khan started in reggae, in Dub (musical genre from Jamaican reggae) and in Metal Rock. This allowed him to vent his anger when he was young. He is a very talented autodidact.
Thomas Khan started playing in the metro and was spotted to participate in the fourth edition of the show The Voice on TF1, he joined singer Mika’s team in 2015. This media exposure allowed him to make professional meetings during the Printemps de Bourges in 2016.
The artist will release 2 EPs (Bluedy Mary in 2015 and Pulse in 2016) and perform more than 200 concerts including 2 stages of more than 18,000 people. Then in 2019, Thomas Khan will record his first album “Slideback” in a week at Studios Palace, in Moulins sur Allier., a sound that rather reflects his moods. Since this album, the artist has continued to perform on stage and has shared the stage at La Cigale with artists such as A-HA, -M-, Toto and Tower of Power.
Thomas Khan is dubbed “the Little Prince of Modern Soul” by Rolling Stone magazine. Thomas Khan has always had this particular tone of voice, he sings with his heart the moments of life, inhabited by Soul, in which he has been immersed since a young age.
From his career, we will remember that he is deeply attracted by Soul, Blues and by certain Jamaican voices such as those of Bob Marley or Al Griffiths. Thomas Khan then made the decision to move towards his music that really touched him: Otis Redding, Ray Charles, Nina Simone, Johny Cash, The Gladiators…
To succeed, Thomas Khan worked on vocal technique with a speech therapist and a singing teacher, the artist also took English lessons.
Thomas Khan works hard to achieve that voice, that accent, those beautiful vibes. He sings with his heart, he exudes real emotion, he vibrates.
It is a real pleasure to hear and see him sing.
You will be able to discover it on October 26 at the New Morning in Paris.
