"An artist in residence in existence."
Taking influence from early blues legends, folk, psychedelic, classical music, and prog rock, to name a few, versatile guitarist, singer, and songwriter Thomas Abban honed his skills as a teenager in Minneapolis. Balancing bluesy virtuosity with elements of rock, R&B, and classical, he made his recording debut in 2017 with A Sheik's Legacy.
Before his debut Abban could be seen working out his eclectic style in three-hour sets at local coffee houses and open mic’s by the age of 15, often using his acoustic guitar as a percussion instrument as well as a stringed one when playing solo.
In mid-2017, the then 21-year-old Abban's full-length debut, A Sheik's Legacy, was released. The self-produced album featured Abban on not only guitar but bass, piano, and drums. RCA took notice and reissued A Sheik's Legacy in multiple formats in September 2018.
