Nick Thomas of The Spill Canvas

Nick Thomas, the one man mastermind behind The Spill Canvas, started writing and recording songs when he was in his early teens growing up in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.  A dedicated local following grew quite quickly which started the ball rolling into a transition from a one man show to a full band.

A few years later Nick Thomas and The Spill Canvas (Dan Ludeman on guitar, Joe Beck on drums and Landon Heil on bass) finds themselves back in the studio working on the band’s latest full length album with producer Mike Green. Details are slow to trickle in on the anticipated release date of the new album but in the interim the band has released two EPs (Realities and Abnormalities).

We recently caught up with Nick to talk about the EPs, the new albums and the impact that the evolution of the internet has had on the band.
