Berklee College of Music alum Kevin Thomas has been a meditation teacher, trauma resolution facilitator, and has trained psychics how to develop clairvoyant skills. He founded Songwriting Planet, an online songwriting school which provides video courses and training, and his book Melody Madness explores the often elusive process of melody writing. As an adjunct professor of music at Maharishi University of Management (MUM), he was involved with consciousness based education. “I liked teaching at MUM,” he says, “because it gave me a glimpse at how I could combine my background in personal growth with music.”
Thomas has also played with alternative rockers Stratosphere. His Kevin Thomas Band is an indie-rock group with funky guitars, bluesy piano and organ, a blaze of drums and percussion, and poetic lyrics.
An album called A New Heart was released in 2017.
