Thicker Than Thieves
Defying the current state of popular music,Thicker Than Thieves successfully blends soulful vocals, searing guitar solos, and a rock-reggae based rhythm section to create a unique signature sound. "San Diego based, Thicker Than Thieves pump out a sun-baked and surf inspired mix of heavy, reggae inflected bass lines and blazing guitars," wrote Bill Picture, staff writer, San Francisco Examiner. Influences ranging from Bad Brains, Bob Marley, The Clash, and classical composers like Dvorak, have allowed TTT to bring a multi-faceted yet widely appreciated original style to a diverse fan base. Primarily defined by memorable live performances, TTT has entertained audiences at events such as Reggae In The River and the Vans Warped Tour. Thicker Than Thieves began with local acclaim in 2000, and by extensively touring throughout the western U.S.(including Hawaii), Canada, Costa Rica, TTT has been widely accepted by all types of music fans. In 2002, TTT self released "Smuggler's Run" and 2004's EP "Respect" featuring reggae artist Tippa Irie. In 2007, TTT released the full length LP "Thru Thick and Thin" and have continued to receive great reviews from industry professionals and fans alike. TTT music has been featured on various surf movies, as well as the most recent debut on the movie Hard Breakers featuring Tia Carrera and Tom Arnold(2010). With band members from Costa Rica, Hawaii, and California, Thicker Than Thieves has a sound that stands on its own. TTT is currently working on its 4th full length release with record producers Michael "Miguel" Happoldt(Skunk Records) and Louie Richards(17th Street Recording Studio) which best displays the unique talents and diverse songwriting skills Thicker Than Thieves brings to the stage. For this hardworking band, the philosophy is simple: play positive music that makes people dance, and to inspire the youth.
