Thal began digitally releasing a song-a-month in January, complete with guitar transcriptions, mix stems of the recordings and alternate mixes. Previous releases includeGoodbye Yellow Brick Road (Elton John), Strawberry Fields Forever (the Beatles) and Bernadette (Four Tops).
“After years on the road it's great to be back in the studio, putting out these songs every month,” says Thal. “ Invisible is the first original song I've released since 2008. This year I started teaching again, doing a lot of guest playing on albums and at shows, and am hoping to produce some bands as well this year if time allows. Getting back to doing everything I've been missing.”
Recent releases featuring Thal's guest guitar work includeReach Down (Scarlet Haze), Free Yourself (Ty Tabor of King's X), and even a cover of Frosty the Snowman with Steve 'Lip' Kudrow of Anvil on vocals.
Thal is also playing NYC-area shows as guitarist in the bandPisser with Guns' drummer Frank Ferrer. Thal will be a guest guitarist with the metal band Salem in Israel on May 6th, and with Pisser at Bowery Electric in NYC on May 24th.
