How long has it been?
More than a year?
Yeah, one of Nippertown’s very finest singer-songwriters hasn’t stepped into the spotlight in waaaay too long. It’s not that he’s stage-shy, that’s for sure, because Bryan Thomas grabs the audience’s attention as soon as he straps on his guitar.
But back from his 13-month hiatus, Thomas launched into his show at the Bread & Jam Cafe in Cohoes on Friday night, and almost immediately began apologizing. “I told Julia that I should have been opening for her,” he said. Then he whipped through 10 stunning tunes in 50 minutes – proving to everyone within earshot why he shouldn’t really be opening for anybody.
