Thomas & The Empty Orchestra

Thomas & The Empty Orchestra is the music of Thomas Matthew Bower, attempting to explore topics of love, loss, obsession and redemption. Taking influence from the likes of Paul Simon, Nick Drake, Bon Iver, Iron & Wine, The Good Life, Fleet Foxes and the broader American emo scene he crafts folk songs rich with poetic imagery; tales of frailty, love and the grim English North. 

The live environment, however, is where Thomas & The Empty Orchestra truly shines, imbuing his songs with a rabble rousing, foot stomping authenticity, intimacy and easy charm.
