Thomas Abban


His astonishingly unique debut album “A Sheik’s Legacy” blazes it’s way into brand new territories. Fiercely unique and uncompromising - a new sound ready to explode. Thomas & Deck Night recently signed a three record deal with RCA.


“Thomas Abban grew up in Wales and moved to Minneapolis when he was 12. Around that time, he began getting serious about guitar, which he’d already been playing for three or four years. He immersed himself in the blues — Blind Willie Johnson, who preached gospel on Texas street corners and slid a knife along his guitar strings until they vibrated with the sound of dead souls, was a favorite — though Abban was less interested in mastering technique than feeling. By the time he was 17, he was playing Minneapolis coffee houses, marathon three-hour sets that were somewhere between practice and performance. He was looking for a way of getting the music in his head — an uncharted mix of folk, prog, metal and mysticism — into the world.” - Rolling Stone 2018
