Biography

In Summer 2019, accomplished solo artist and songwriter Tom Jane joined forces
with
Sam Burgum on bass (Santiago Kings) and Hugh Butler on drums & keys

to form LIGHTNING THREADS.

Together they create a sound which is deeply routed and derived from the rich musical history & legendary blues artists of the 'deep south' United States, finding inspiration in Hendrix, BB King, Cream, and The Black Keys.

Based in Sheffield, LIGHTNING THREADS are travelling and performing their music
throughout the UK, playing renowned venues such as the O2 Academy Sheffield,
The Greystones, The Washington, and Fat Lils.

 

Performances at Tramlines, Welshfast, Y Not Festival, Nor Lye, and Conisborough Music Festival, have seen Tom's music gain acclaim from BBC Introducing Sheffield and RGM Magazine. 

About

 

Press

"I strongly recommend seeing this guy live. Capitvating. Fantastic voice."

 

"Something about really well done blues that gets the juices flowing.

I'm already a fan. They're doing something right. "

                                                                                      - BBC Introducing Sheffield

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

"A skilled musician with 1OO% command over his instrument. One of the most soothing voices I've heard"

                                                                                      - Mad Alice Records

​                                                                                

"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"
