Guitarist Cask Thomson is a maverick in the doom rock world. He defines any easy pigeon-hole. By turns, he picks an electric guitar to accompany his ballad, sings a witty song about modern life, plays an eccentric bluesy guitar solo, belts an angry tune and then reaches deep for a soulful expression of values in a troubled world.
As a producer and enthusiast who has worked with several artists in Australia, he has spent many long hours mastering and mixing records as well as providing the graphics designs and artworks for dozens of international bands.
He’s one of the few producers who focuses on 5.1 mixing and giving his recordings a true ‘surround’ feel.
Cask J. Thomson is a multitalented individual who, outside of music, founded an online news editorial ‘WordMean’ as well as a publishing company through which he himself has written and published several works based on his qualifications and experience as a computer scientist.
