When I first heard about Thief, I was skeptical. I was about to embark on a short tour with one of Toby Driver's various projects, (Piggy Black Cross), and Toby told me Thief from Los Angeles would be joining. That first night of tour Dylan and Thief stunned me with the craft of their songs, the passion in their performance, and I was instantly impressed with their unique and dynamic shows each night.
Now, a few moons later, we have shared the stage a handful of times and Thief has cemented itself as one of my absolute favorite bands. In 2019 Thief released "Map of Lost Keys" on Prophecy Productions. The album is a rich and emotional dive into the musical mind of Dylan Neal, who writes and records all the music himself, but is joined by two others for live performances.
Come listen to us get unhinged while we discuss production techniques, obscure bands from the Czech Republic, racism in art, and of course, share music... and don't forget to pass the aux!
