Bio


Thomas Yon grew up along the River and Tracks of the Nantahala Gorge right outside of Bryson City, NC; while his father ran a Boiled Peanut Shack and played his guitar with Thomas at his side. Thomas developed the talent of harmony, but also strong lead vocals. 

By the age of 8 he was in his kayak on the river by day and his evenings spent singing at local venues and even at Fairs. Notably at 10 years old he made his way to the large stage at the Georgia Mountain Fair.

He had two loves; whitewater and music, but his heart was torn between them. Choosing the wilder of the two he ended up chasing after waterfalls and National Whitewater Competitions bringing on 1st and 2nd place in many.

But he could always be found playing his guitar and singing after his adventures, usually around a campfire or on the tailgate of his Chevy Pickup truck. In 2014 His life made some dramatic turns and with his heart on his sleeve he put down the paddle and picked up his guitar full time.His soul bled out in ink onto paper, leaving a mark not forgotten.

Thomas’ music is infused with the sound of ole’ Country, Folk and Rock, passionate vocals and lyrics that take you down memory lane; with Ideals of love, mistakes, growing old, injustices, moving on, standing up and just appreciating the life we have.
