***Thomas COMAS Band***
The group was born in april 2012. Therefore it’s a young band that I am going to describe.
Thomas COMAS recorded 7 titles of his own composition in november 2011 when he was only 14 years old.
His musics have been on numerical turntables as well as on « You Tube » and that’s how Vincent JACQUELIN (a guitarist from the Music Academy) and Fab MONROE (drummer and drum teacher at the TAMA School) discovered Thomas’s musical surroundings.
Only a Bass player was missing to conclude the formation. After some research and a few tests, Thomas ENRICO (multi-instrumentalist from Menton and Nice Music Academies) joined the band which became « Thomas Comas and the Absolutions ».
In 2012 after several local concerts, they performed in St Tropez (beach of the Esquinade) in Nice (at the Mediterranean Palace for the final PACA du Zicmeup where they arrived fifth of the local competition) in Cannes (Palm Beach for a private show) Eze village and Eze beach and finished the year on the Hercule Quay in Monaco where a programme director, Mr Bernard RAMEL, Chairman and Managing Director of Black Diamonds Productions ask them to send recordings of the 20 titles from their « set list ».
Apart from rehearsals and small concerts they spent the first 3 months of 2013 realising those recordings.
Micky B., living in Monthey (Switzerland), organiser of Montreux Festival and director of « In the Air Agency » and friend of John MAYALL’s producer takes an interest in Thomas. He sends him an invitation to John MAYALL’s show in Nice.
On that concert John signs Thomas’s guitar and after the concert Thomas meets Alan REEVES, awarded several times for his musical works. He composed, amongst others one of the musics of TARENTINO’s film called « Kill Bill ». After listenning to Thomas’s compositions Alan becomes a fan and proposes to participate voluntarily to the creation of Thomas’s recordings by letting him use a recording studio and its equipements in his property in Cannes.
After 3 months work Alan advised them to record 3 titles in a recording studio.
The mix was done at the Electric Studio of Salernes in the region of Var (France) under the direction of Serge then sent to Bordeaux to the « Globe Audio Mastering ».
Also spotted out by a Franco- Belgium production, LEKMAN Productions, the group signs for severals concerts. They will perform in Beziers at the Zinga Zanga on september 28th.
In july, Mark S. BERRY, Chairman and Managing Director of « Attack Media Song » in Canada proposes to make a marketing campaign in the United States, Canada and Europe and to sign 2 contracts in august while he is in France.
He also proposed to re-make the mix of the last 3 titles in his canadian studios.
