What to Expect
Expect on time quality. Haunebu2 will typically set up within an hour and a half to two hours. Thomas starts with an acoustic set covering originals and a few choice and probably unknown but always well received cover songs (if allowed at venue). Then he moves over to his computer and Kaosillator for an hour's flight on the Haunebu2 itself running the gamut from alternative rock to steampunk airship captain psychedelia. With lights, lasers, and plenty of fog everywhere you will take a trip to the skies. Finally, Thomas' voice is like smooth satin and his originally written and produced songs cover some important yet overlooked facts down throughout history but the story is told with a sweetness that simply will not be denied. Thank you for considering Haunebu II.
Haunebu II is Thomas Sparks main band and so who is Thomas Sparks? Well, these days I am a 43 year old singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist who has been singing since before I can remember. I grew up in Atlanta, Georgia, and while growing up there I was singing solos in my church at a young age, as well as participating in talent shows throughout my school years. An American classic series of events led me to the Great Northwest in 1989. In particular, the North Olympic Peninsula in Washington State. It's here (Well, I already knew I could sing ), that I picked up an acoustic guitar and started honing my skills to a competitive level.
In 2008 I was able to compile a lot of my past broken tracks, and takes cobbled together, and with a few of my newer song ideas put it together on my first Compact Disc called Lost Takes. Here's a few of my links if you might have further interest -Gimmie a like at Facebook... (link hidden) (link hidden) (link hidden) , (link hidden) , (link hidden) In 2009 and 2010 I donated my input as a field reporter to Ryan Mulligan garnering some high profile interviews with some regional,national,and international names even guest hosting the show a few times, and was simultaneously voted #1 Top Artist for over two months at the former (link hidden) reaching the whole Northwest and beyond.
In 2010 I was recommended by a few fans of (link hidden) to try out for Blind Melon. Well...I didn't get the job but in the process of bugging the tar out of them, I have become friends with Brad Smith whom I have considered my musical mentor for over twenty years. Imagine that,,,ME,,,getting to pitch songs to Brad Smith. Who would've thought?
On 3-07-10 I was given natonal attention when producer Tom Danhieser and host George Noory of (link hidden) featured me as an EMERGING ARTIST!!! My former website counter ticked up steadily for like three or four days after that airtime. Thanks guys!
Moving forward to now...I have been making choice solo and duet appearances for the last couple of years while writing my next body of work. I'm calling this new project ~Zero Point~. I usually write solo but have a full a band for local/regional gigs and even national events, I've been #1 on the Reverb Nation Rock Charts for Port Angeles/Sequim for nearly 10 years!
Currently, I am recording new music and have been looking for that Next Level gig and am available for private and public events...
My style and influence flow from the Almighty God and this, his amazing world, along with all my favorite influential folks like Paul McCartney, The Late Great Shannon Hoon of Blind Melon, and my brother and musical mentor from Mississippi - Mr. Brad Smith also from Blind Melon of course, Chris Cornell, Producers Glenn Ballard and Rick Parashar. Singer Sebastian Bach formerly of Skid Row. Classic rock bands like Heart and 10cc, Badfinger and so many others.
As always, I will also announce any local & regional shows that I'm playing seasonally and so on. All the while trying to attain a few things I need to continue my work on new bodies of work. It's been grueling but so worth it...Thanks for stopping in to my new spot. Check in on occasion to get the lowdown on what I'm up to. Lastly,, but not least,, thanks to all who have helped me along the way to achieve my goals in the last umpteen hundred years. You know who you are and you will not be forgotten. I hope to see you all soon. Have a great 2016 everyone!!
Very Truly Yours,
Thomas Sparks and Haunebu II
