Label: The Brass Tax Cooperative

The Seattle based trio, The Thoughts,  formed in 2007 with Ian Williams and Jon Horwath, who have played together for years, joined with Seattle violinist Katie Mosehauer.  What brought this band together was the shared desire to create dynamic nuanced music.

Drawing from influences such as King Crimson, Neutral Milk Hotel and Elliot Smith, The Thoughts creatively and artistically render both traditional songs and songs that tell their stories with a mix of savagery and sweetness.  Armed with nothing more than drums, violin/harp, and guitar/vocals, The Thoughts songs cross broad spectrums of emotion ranging from pretty to violent and from intimate to unexpected.
