Single Review: “The One” – Leigh Thomas

have one question to ask. Why is Leigh not playing packed out arenas?

This dude has just released a single that packs a solid punch, it comes with an intro that hits the ground running. And it sounds like he’s got a full band in the studio and they’re having a ball; this is a bluesy number with a growl of a Hammond organ in there. I’d have given the keyboard player some just for that alone!

Lyrically this song talks about life before you find “the one”, how things weren’t quite right but the one changes everything for you, always there even when you have your little quirks.

Musically this is a blues rock song that if not played live would be a gross injustice.

Is that a horn section?


Love the guitar solo at 2:38.

Leigh is a Gippsland/Melbourne based singer, songwriter, guitarist, creating soulful, melodic, indie pop/rock. A wide range of influences and experiences from Brit Pop, Heavy Rock and Blues to Alternative Rock and Classical, are forged into Leigh’s own personal and unique style. Word imagery, poetry, social commentary, are important factors lyrically in Leigh’s music. A lifelong professional singer and guitarist, Leigh first made inroads into the music scene as lead guitarist for Melbourne guitar pop band Jericho, who released several EPs, toured Australia, and performed a “Live at the Wireless” session aired by JJJ radio. Leigh has since been continually performing live, but only recently has decided to hit the indie scene again with several releases. He is now working on writing, recording and releasing more new material, and performing around Melbourne as a solo act, whilst putting a band together to give his music the full impact it deserves.
