The Debut Al


This album has been a long road. Some tracks find their roots right back to the beginning of the band, but the soil from which they stem is much much older. We pull over here to rest awhile and commit these songs to vinyl, hoping you enjoy them as much as we do.


We journey together. Tom Jane on Guitar & Vocals, Sam Burgum on Bass & Vocals and Hugh Butler on Drums & Keys, with the sound guidance of Andrew Banfield of Superfly Studios and the celestial gospel vocals of Kelly Michaeli. 


Thank you for being with us along the way.

        Featuring face-melting guitars, groove-ridden basslines, and a multi-instrumentalist  drummer simultaneously playing keys.  Audiences can’t get enough of Thread's   fresh and uniquely energetic electric blues.

Their music  regularly featured on BBC INTRODUCING with the single ‘Take a Mile’ hitting  #1 in the ITUNES BLUES CHART upon release in 2021.

The Latest Track from lighting Threads, and iTs HUGE  

                                                                                                               -  BBC Introducing

​                  "Go see them live. Thank me later"                                                             - CMF

​                 Lightning Threads have cherry picked the finest elements of multiple genres and carefully woven them into a rich tapestry of sound that is all their own.                                       - Tony Barnes,- Keep Music Live 

"Lightning Threads are a band oozing with charisma, passion and electrifying energy 



"a brilliant bluesy trio, serving up John Mayer-esque, gruff vocals mixed with the hip-shaking groove of Amy Winehouse's Back to Black. Although the band had an aura of indie, the vocals could easily sit seamlessly in the charts.. 

insane vocal clarity"


- Northern Exposure
