Thomas Mery is a singer/songwriter from Paris (France) who sang and played guitar in the post-pop-rock band Purr between 1995 and 2000, together with Stéphane Bouvier (now touring with Yann Tiersen), and Jérôme Lorichon (now half of The Berg Sans Nipple).
In the early 2000’s, Thomas produced albums by French indie bands such as Playdoh and Téléfax, while starting to experiment on his own on stage with nothing more than an empty sampler. Those heartfelt eletronics experiments led to the release of the EP ‘I Matter’ in 2003. Thomas Mery then turned to a more straight-forward folk music with his first solo album ‘A Ship, Like A Ghost, Like A Cell’ in 2006, more influenced by English folk songwriters and finger-picking guitar players.
Together with The Desert Fox, a band consisting of Erwan Fauchard, Faustine Sellman and François Gautreau, he recorded a cover version of Running Up That Hill for the compilation album Fête de la Musique 2007.
Never ceasing to search and now mostly singing in his native tongue, French, Thomas released ‘Les Coleurs, Les Ombres’ in 2011.
