Diesel Boots

Diesel Boots is a singer/songwriter from the deepest, darkest corners of America. He was born in the same Dodge pickup he was conceived in, and his music comes from the place where country and blues split a jug of whiskey on a hot, moonless night. His past is a mystery and his future is less certain than most, but no one who’s seen him perform has walked away unchanged. Diesel likes rattlesnakes, rusty oil drums, and long romantic walks along the ocean.

Oakland-based singer/songwriter Thadeus Gonzalez has earned international critical acclaim, and has been called "a front man to watch" with "an arena looking and sounding attitude."
Over the last several years Thadeus has fronted several bands within the Oakland-San Francisco Bay Area and by 2010 he enjoyed opening for various high-profile gigs throughout the west coast and commendable radio and video play before pursuing a solo career with Thadeus Gonzalez in 2014.

A credible songwriter and guitar player, Thadeus released his debut solo record, “Utopian Society” in 2014. The title track demonstrates total rock bombast; alt and punk influences come through in “Your Needle Scratches My Vinyl” and “Literally.” While the lyrics are evocative and unusual, Gonzalez’s unique writing style is most evident in the sexy, moody “Our Connection” and the vulnerably revealing ballad, “White.” Typical review: "Around each corner a total surprise, which keeps “Utopian Society” fresh and relevant sounding from track to track.”

Utopian Society was produced by Dennis Hill (Hagar/Satriani, Lit, Good Charlotte) and recorded/mixed by Kyle Homme (Matt Costa, Sugarcult, Reel Big Fish). Dennis (Face to Face) and Scott Shiflett (Face to Face, Me First and the Gimme Gimmes) contributed guitars, Pete Pacheco (Electric Sister) was on bass, and Nathan Walker (Lit) on drums.
In 2017 Thadeus Gonzalez was signed to Spectra Music Group and his second solo record, Silver Inside, was released in January 2018. The first single, also title Silver Inside, has enjoyed a phenomenal amount of attention with national radio and video play.
Silver Inside features Dennis Hill and Thadeus on guitars, Scott Richards on bass and Nathan Walker (Lit) on drums. Dennis Hill (Hagar/Satriani, Lit, Good Charlotte) also produced and Kyle Homme (Matt Costa, Sugarcult, Reel Big Fish) recorded and mixed the record at The Lodge.
Thadeus has opened for KISS, Motley Crue, Slash and in 2017, Bon Jovi at the SAP Center in San Jose.
