Emerging British R&B singer-songwriter Ed Thomas debuts the music video for his breakthrough single “On My Own”. Shot on location in Benidorm featuring real people, enjoy the visuals for “On My Own” below and download his Outlaws EP here.
“In early January 2014 newcomer Ed Thomas uploaded his debut solo track ‘On My Own’ to his Soundcloud. A sparkling slice of R&B pop that had a delicious two-step to it’s slinky electronic groove. It brought to mind the radio friendly jams of the British wave of funk’s Quiet Storm like Peter Gabriel and at the same time sounded instep with the new wave of young British house artists. A couple of weeks later he posted the hushed ‘Hurt’ which inhabited a smoother late night place, closer to the tender Rhye or The XX.
Now having racked up 150K plays on his Soundcloud, he reveals the video for lead track ‘On My Own’ shot in location in Benidorm with real people not actors. Ed Thomas is stepping out from behind features and co-writes. Whether that’s writing ‘Fires’ for Bondax that Josh Record sung (511,000 + plays) or ‘Giving It All’ for the same artist (945,000 + plays) or lending his song writing and vocals to Chase And Status’s ‘Blk & Blu’. Bring it together and you have one of the UK’s best and most distinctive new R&B heartbreak storytellers.”
