Like watching a storm from a safe place, Able Thought’s music is an eerie swelling of powerful sub-sonics gathering amidst a tranquil unpredictable environment. “A storm he orchestrates and engages and recedes and scares away and invites in.” 15 miles east of Providence, Rhode Island and along the Warren River bank lies the small creative arts town of Warren where the blue-eyed, neo-soul singer is from. Gathering inspiration from his environment, being minutes from the Atlantic Ocean, indigenous parts of the Northeastern Woodlands and the culturally rich city of Providence, Able Thought’s lyrics poor out, with detail and vividness, the emotions and nuances of his everyday life. The track ‘Between The Trees’ off the upcoming release “serene In Limbo” reflects this – “In mild woods sway with me/ In mild wood find me weak/ In moonlit woods between the trees/ In moonlit woods stay close to me”. Able Thought will be supporting his latest release “serene In Limbo” with a Mid-West tour in the spring 2016 and an East Coast tour beginning summer 2016.
DJ Reese 95.5 WBRU – “Some sounds make you feel that ‘special-something’ – others remind you of how special, how human, that moment can be. ‘Able Thought’ delivers both through his carefully crafted repertoire of sincere and utter vulnerability.”
Jake Bissaro Motif Magazine – “Maybe the best way to describe the sound is by simply recalling the name of the album, ‘serene In Limbo’. You feel like you’re floating in limbo in an echo-y, open forest.”
Able Thought has shared the stage with… Wild Child, Roz And The Rice Cakes, And The Kids, Javelin, Simone Felice (Felice Brothers), Jimmy Destri (Blondie), Bernie Worrell (Parliament-Funkadelic, Talking Heads)
