5 E Edenton St

Kamara Thomas was recently featured in a Paste article titled "14 Artists Proving Black Americana is Real." Thomas writes musical tales culled from American songlines and dreamtimes. Her songwriting draws from a wide swath of classic country and rock -- echoes of Fleetwood Mac, Neil Young, Emmylou Harris, and Tom Petty co-mingle with the folk sounds of spirituals, hymns, mountainsong and Lucinda Williams-esque originals. Thomas performs with her band The Nightdrivers -- Nathan Golub (bass) and Steve Anderson (drums) -- out of Durham, North Carolina. In 2015, Thomas was a featured artist for Lincoln Center Education's repertory season, presenting songs from Tularosa: An American Dream Time, a work in development that explores the mythology of the American West through a song cycle about a forsaken plot of New Mexico land. (Photo credit: Jeremy Lange)
