Thomston

Bio

Young singing sensation Thomston was given a year by his parents to make his mark in music or go to university. Today, he is making an impact globally with his own brand of pop-R&B-alt-electronic, writes Lydia Jenkin.

He seems like a fairly typical 19-year-old as he bounds into the room, full of energy, cracking open a Red Bull, chatting about sneakers. But the unassuming appearance of sandy-haired Thomas Stoneman, better known as Thomston, belies his rather extraordinary achievements.

Despite having only decided to work towards a career in music at the end of 2013, he's already released two critically acclaimed EPs, had more than 10 million plays on Spotify, found himself nominated as a top 20 finalist for the Apra Silver Scroll award this year, and been selected as the only New Zealand artist in MTV's Brand New competition.

He's also had plenty of Lorde comparisons - given his tender age, release-an-EP-for-free approach, and the fact that he's signed to her old management company, Saiko Management. And of course his slightly other-worldly alt-R&B-electronica approach has a little in common with Ms Yelich-O'Connor, too.

But Thomston has his own story to tell, and has carved his own niche, all the while remaining remarkably grounded.
