“Ex- Cabins in the Forest singer/ guitarist Gary Thomas is a Music graduate of the University of Kwa-Zulu Natal. His unique mastery of his instrument and voice makes him one of the leaders of the acoustic music scene in South Africa today”.
Born and raised in Durban, South Africa, where he studied music at the University of Kwa-Zulu Natal, Gary moved to Cape Town in 2006 and started psychedelic Nu-Folk duo Cabins in the Forest with Andy Jamieson. Two years on and Cabins had become a solid leading force in the South African acoustic scene. Based in Cape Town, Gary and Andy quickly created a renowned reputation locally and nationally for their explosive, intricate live performances. The duo split indefinitely in late 2008 to focus on solo work.
Constantly writing songs that challenge both himself, his instrument and audiences, Gary balances meticulously crafted songwriting with dynamic vocals and contained improvisation. In 2007 Gary released his debut solo album, “Wooden Boxes and Thought Hunting” on mp3 format, selling mostly at a few solo shows. Now headed in a focused direction, this album will be sold at shows, online and in stores.
