From the rolling black land prairie just East of Interstate 35 comes Lance Wade Thomas (LWT). Originally hailing from Holland, Texas [Pop. 863], this is one singer/songwriter and performer that knows what he’s singing about when small town Texas is the subject. LWT brings a mixed bag of roughneck intellectual, jack-of-all trades, small-town rabble rouser that any Texas songwriter troubadour would envy. He has a Baptist preacher for a father, was a high school quarterback, worked for farmers, landscapers and remodelers, and finally went to law school and graduated, and later taught Political Science at Baylor University – how’s that for experience! The point is, he knows of life’s diversity and understands how to turn a phrase into a hit; and his peers respect him for it. LWT’s debut effort, Songs From a Small Town, showcases all original songs – no co-writers or stuff like that. The record was released in 2007, with singles like “Jim Beam and Mary Jane” and “Forever Wasn’t Long Enough” gaining significant radio play. He has also warmed up for just about everybody in the Texas Country music biz.…Fowler, Rogers, Edmondson, Rhyder, Creager, Bowen, Reckless Kelley, Honey Browne, Chris Knight, Stoney, Jack Ingram, and even Ray Wylie Hubbard…to name a few. He’s a hard-punching, power-housed entertainer that leaves it all on the table. Seeing LWT perform, you know he’s a genuine soul writing about the love, the fights, the friday night lights that every small town-er endures. With a new record scheduled for release in the summer of 2014, Its bound to be pure “small town tough”!
