Hailing proudly from Birmingham, Alabama, brothers Austin and Chad Thomas form the genre bending group AC Thomas.
Chad Thomas is the quietly intense singer with the soulful voice who slips seamlessly into playing the part of the high energy showman, while Austin Thomas is sure to not be outshined; he delivers punchy, danceable rhymes that keep fans young and old of country music wanting more of this new sound. Together they hit a winning formula of “Country Slang” that garnered the attention needed to take them the distance. A fairy tale of sorts.
Chad (24) and Austin (20) got picked up quickly by Birmingham Entertainment by Label head, Ron Pole. AC Thomas sound originated @ Epic Studios in Birmingham, AL with producer, Johnny Boy Wilson. After the duo completed the first ten songs, the label decided, live instruments would be an excellent addition to their music.
Johnny Boy took the duo to Nashville to team up with Mega producer out of Nashville, Sean Giovanni and went into production on their first album at the Record Shop to help craft the final sound.
“It was obvious to me how unique they were. Chad comes from a strong, traditional, country background, while Austin really had an authentic hip hop sound. It was natural, unforced, and I didn’t feel I was working with characters. I got the real thing.” – Sean Giovanni, The Record Shop.
As the tour dates fill up the calendar, the AC team is gearing up for a release of the freshman album (Untitled) and their appearance on the first ever Welcome To Nashville compilation record later this year, 2015.
