Prog-Watch 421

by The Prog Squatch | Thomas Thielen, Pt. 2

This week I finish up my coverage on Thomas Thielen, the fascinating German artist simply known as “t”! We’ll hear more of my conversation with Thomas, along with more “t” music, and some EXCLUSIVE music from his forthcoming Clouds Can project! Also, we’ll check in with Dr. Rob Fisher, for a great Progressive Discoveries feature on the new album by Alan Reed!


Thomas Thielen (AKA “t”) was born and is based in Germay. Initially a keyboard player, he soon jumped to bass and eventually guitar after he joined his first band in his teens. He was a member of a German band called Scythe in the ’90s, and when it disbanded he eventually began doing solo albums and adopted the “t” moniker. In his leisure time, t works as a teacher (latin / english) and a teacher for teachers (educational psychology). He is also a father (to Sophia, born 2010), a husband (married to the famous photographer and writer Katia Tangian), a dedicated, yet mediocre football player, and an aficionado of literature and cinema.
