Band & Musician News - Thomas Oliver releases single

Thomas Oliver releases single

02 July 2013 - 0 Comments

SINGLE RELEASE DATE: Friday 5th July 2013 
The single will be available on iTunes from this date

In August, 2013, Thomas Oliver will release the world's first full-length, all instrumental, all Weissenborn album, titled Beneath The Weissenborn.

Best known for his flagship band, The Thomas Oliver Band, whose debut album Baby, I'll Play was awarded the iTunes Best Blues & Roots Album of 2011, Thomas is also internationally recognised as a leading player of the Weissenborn lap-slide guitar.

The first single to be taken from Beneath The Weissenborn is the hauntingly sparse Jurassic Park Theme Song.

"I was 7 years old when Jurassic Park was released. I went to see it at the movies about 5 times. Even at the age of 7, I was absolutely enamoured by the music. The main reason I kept going back to see it was so that I could hear the music again. It would be another 3 years before I would even touch a guitar, but the Jurassic Park score touched me deeply as soon as I heard it. It was the soundtrack to a very special time in the lives of many kids such as myself; for the first time, dinosaurs were alive, and our fascinations were entertained! But more than that, it was an incredibly beautiful piece of music. The melody stuck in my head for 20 years before I finally owned it myself. And when I bought it recently, it was like being reunited with a long lost friend, and I played it over and over and over again, as loud as I could, thrusting my arms into the air in the middle of my lounge room. Every time I listen to it, still I just can't believe how good it is. It remains my favourite film score ever. So I decided to arrange it for my favourite instrument ever, the Weissenborn. Thank you, John Williams, for such an incredible piece of music." - Thomas Oliver
