Brooks Thomas is an acoustic duo comprised of Colleen Brooks Cadogan and Danny Thomas McDonald. Sharing both songwriting and singing duties, Colleen and Danny combine elements of Reggae, Folk and Soul, to produce a groove based, harmony rich style of acoustic music. In addition to guitar and vocals, Brooks Thomas incorporates the classic Dub sound of Colleen’s Melodica, while also featuring Danny on Tenor Saxophone. This multi-instrumental approach yields an eclectic performance in which songs range from slow Dylanesque folk tunes, to hard-hitting Roots Reggae numbers. After years of playing together in multi-piece Reggae bands such as Wrighteous L and Dub Sack Dynasty, Colleen and Danny have formed a strong musical and emotional bond that shines through their performance. Whether trading off lines or weaving together rich harmonies, Brooks Thomas presents progressive roots music anchored in unwavering companionship. The group is often joined by Eric Sullivan on drums, and Rocky Russo on bass.
