Andrew & Carla Thomas


Andrew & Carla ThomasAndrew and Carla Thomas's first public performance together was an unrehearsed rendition of Amy Grant's "Thy Word" that would have been wonderful had they remembered the verses to the song. Since then, their passionate, harmony-laden, keyboard-based sound has helped them overcome such inauspicious beginnings to become one of the northeastern U.S.'s premier contemporary Christian acts. Although they currently reside in South Portland, Maine, their music has taken them to coffeehouses and churches all over New England. However, they still maintain strong ties to their home church, Stroudwater Baptist in Portland, Maine, where they serve on the worship team.

Andrew and Carla perform a mix of Andrew's originals and select covers. "What we hope to do with this music," says Andrew, "is point people toward the unseen and eternal." Whether through worship or outreach, Andrew and Carla Thomas strive to exemplify this with their music and lives.

And they've been known to throw in a cover of "Thy Word" every once in a while, verses and all.
