Left Hand Lions
Rising Americana singer-songwriter Thomas Hopkins grabs his audience with raw passion, grit, and a familiar tenderness. With his left-handed 12-string guitar and a kick drum, he writes songs that captivate with thought-provoking lyrics and toe-tapping beats.

Based in Santa Barbara, CA, Thomas is the founder and frontman of the band, Left Hand Lions, which tours around California spreading their Wild Americana sound—a raw blend of wire, wood, smoke, and sparks.

His stylings are reminiscent of bands including Mumford & Sons, the Dave Matthews Band, and the John Butler Trio.

Thomas released his demo “Leo De Terra” at the beginning of 2017, from which “Tempered Years” has been featured in Folk and Americana music blogs and on ReverbNation. He will be releasing a full album in early January 2018.

Off the stage, he spends his time doing high-risk, non-lucrative things like writing/performing songs, training for the 2020 Olympics in the Decathlon, and working at a local startup called Brazyn Life--check us out on Shark Tank...

He also loves dogs, whiskey, and fire—he’s your kind of guy.
