ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Thomas Dekker comes from a deeply artistic, intensely European upbringing. His mother, a concert pianist and his father, a painter/opera singer. As a child, he and his parents moved around the world almost continuously, spending time all over the United States, Europe, Canada, and a series of islands including Tahiti and Grand Cayman. No matter how the environment was changing, music was the constant in his family and life.

At the age of five, Thomas landed a singing gig for a commercial which led to a young acting career, during which he has appeared in numerous television series and films, a position he still carries today. But it was always music that was Thomas\' first passion and prime directive in life. While living in an area of Canada that experienced extremely harsh weather conditions in the winter, Thomas, in his own words, became a \"nature obsessed recluse\" who at age ten, began writing pieces of classical music by humming different instrumental layers into a loop/playback track dictaphone. \"I was raised almost entirely on dramatic classical music like Chopin, Beethoven and Shostakovitch. It was my main focus when I started writing songs.\" By the age of fifteen, enrolled in a homeschooling program, Thomas landed a record deal, which after working on eight songs with producers, Thomas would walk away from, believing he was contributing little more than lyrics to the project and that his true musical vision was being altered by his collaborators.

At the age of sixteen, Thomas began writing and producing songs entirely by himself that infused the drama and musical intricacies of classical with the sound scape and aesthetics of electronica. \"The only way I can really think to describe my music, is a kind of \"electrofolk\". Songs that have a traditional melodic and chord structure, often telling stories, but technically supported by electronica. I guess I\'m trying to harness nature and technology in a symbiotic way.\" He would go on to build his own home studio in the desert town of Palmdale, CA. where he would write, record, produce, mix and master all eleven tracks for his first album \"Psyanotic\". \"Psyanotic is really an introduction to myself from myself in many ways. It\'s a little bit of a private album, I think. I\'m kind of keeping a lot of my opinions on things outside of myself a secret still.\"

The album was completely written, composed, produced, mixed and mastered by Thomas himself. Despite continuing with his busy acting career, appearing on television shows such as Fox\'s Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, he has also completed a second album currently titled Protean. Thomas also composed a song \"The Future\", which is dedicated to his Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles character John Connor.

Refreshing
I am very picky when it comes to music and get bored to music within minutes of the song. I think the artist sings from his heart. The music is very touching. I have not felt music like this since I was little.

Interesting
This is a very interesting album. It's like nothing you hear on the radio, which is nice. I can't really categorize it or compare it to anyone else, but I highly recommend it! Check out the music video for 'Psyanotic" too.

Fantastic Music
I seriously can't find a fault with this guy's music, it have a very unique flavour and it's a refreshing change from the more mainstream music at the moment. The passion that Thomas has put into this album is easily noticed throughout the album, from the new mixes of some of the previously heard songs such as "Dare" to some of the more creative lyrics in songs such as "Psyanotic". obviously this is an album that will only appeal to certain people due to it's exciting new sound but for those who it does appeal to it is a perfect listen and it's an achievement on Thomas' part. Also, I wanted to say how easily this album was to get hold of from the site, I'm a UK listener so I wanted to congratulate the site on their easy service, I appreciated it greatly as this was my first time using PayPal.

a remarkable experience
Just as the notes indicated, this indeed feels like a very private album, even if the stories aren't based on real life. What impresses me the most is the musical range of this and the various styles that still seem to mesh into each other and the breadth of his vocal and musical range. Thomas Dekker is a musical force to be reckoned with. This album may not be for everyone, granted, but it shouldn't be judged on snippets. Listen to the whole thing and you most likely won't regret it.
