Music Video: Kerry Thomas - Say Yeah
In the recently released the video for his song 'Say Yeah', taken from his 2012 'Eye Of The Storm' EP, Mississippi based singer/songwriter/guitarist Kerry Thomas brings smoothly sensitive vocals and delicate guitar work to the with-a-twist visual storyline, saying that the song 'describes the moment when it's OK to acknowledge love in public. When asked, "Are you in LOVE?" and you can without a doubt "say yeah"...you know its real....or at least real enough for the moment'.
Voted the Best R&B Artist by the Jackson Free Press in 2012 and 2013, as a guitar player he was 'self taught...I already had a little voice, I could sing a little bit...so I decided to pick up the guitar with it, and just been going ever since then', saying that, along with classic influences like Luther Vandross, Stevie Wonder and Marvin Gaye, 'the reason why I started playing the guitar- I listened to a lot of John Mayer...the way he writes his songs, the way the words come to him, that is very inspirational to me, it kind of influenced the way I write a lot of my music'. A regular performer at Suite 106 in Jackson, MS, Thomas appeared at the Essence Music Festival at the House of Blues in New Orleans, LA in 2011, and was invited to open for Grammy award winning singer/songwriter Kandi Burruss, with his debut 'Eye Of The Storm' EP moving to #1 in the Amazon Soul category in its first week of release.
