Thorin Loeks is a serenading, harmonic, genius. Soothing the mind from the city's hustle and bustle, he brings a very earthy, grounding tone to the ears, with calming qualities of violin accompaniments and harmonies. In Thirsty Hearts, he showcases diverse range, from harmonic deep baritones, to surprising, sweet high notes that emphasize his creative melodic style.
Drawing influence and inspiration from his passionate, curious and explorative personality, Loeks has back packed around many continents, and canoed far distances, and these experiences are evident through his music and lyrics. Loeks uses his voice, guitar, harmonica, kickdrum, foot tambourine, and piano to share reflective, powerful messages, from a personal experience, to communal/societal global level.
Written, played and co-produced by Loeks himself, Thirsty Hearts explores a variety of facets of the human experience. And is symbolic of each person's journey as we each strive to navigate towards a greater understanding, purpose and harmony with ourselves, each other and our world.
