Tell us a little about your background...
Conrad “Butch” Thomas may be new to the charts in the United States, but
he’s no neophyte to the global music industry. His career spans 30 years
of featured performance and recordings by the likes of Jaco Pastorius,
Lenny Kravitz, Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin and Sting.

Born and raised in St Louis, Missouri, he received his Bachelor of Fine
Arts degree in Music (1983) from Webster University. Soon after
graduating, he relocated to New York City, where he established a
relationship with the great instrumentalist and composer Jaco Pastorius (
featured on Pastorius’ recordings “Punk Jazz” and “NYC Jam” and featured
live from 1983-1987). Then (as they say), the rest is history. He
continued on to perform with a “Who’s Who” in music entertainment
including The Temptations (1986), Thomas Dolby (1988), Dave Valentin
(1988) and Lenny Kravitz (1989). His ambidextrous florid jazz style placed
him comfortably in the company of an eclectic roster including “The
College Boyz”, “The Cult”, Tyrone Davis (1990) and the rock group “Living
Colour” (1991).

He’s received a number of video credits including Lenny Kravitz’ hit “It
Aint Over ‘Til It’s Over”, Queen Latifah’s “How Do I Love Thee",
Sting’s “You Still Touch Me”.

It was during this time that the directors of the hit FOX Network
detective series “New York Undercover” called him to appear with a number
of featured guests with the shows' "Natalie's" segment including Al
Jarreau, Al Green, Mavis Stables, Mary J. Blige, and many others. Through
a referral, the call came from superstar singer/guitarist Sting, where he
toured extensively in 1996-97. It was through his appearances with Sting
that he was placed in demand by yet another hierarchy of stars e.g. James
Taylor, Elton John, Diana Ross and a feature spot on Aretha Franklin’s
1998 hit song “A Rose Is Still A Rose” written and produced by
singer/songwriter Lauren Hill.

His current single debut "Caribbean Woman" is his latest smash hit on the
Spectra Jazz Label.

Jaijai, what a wonderful mission you've undertaken to create such a place for artistic minds to meet and share their hearts. A place to renew faded determinations, and revive lessened momentums. A place to display our wares and reconfirm to one another that we actually are on the right track.

I commend you, Jaijai, for caring so much that you created this castle of the heart for all of us. I want to share my praise for all of the new friends as well as old friends that I've met and will meet here in our castle. Here we can garnish the where-with-all, the strength, the conviction, and the selflessness through our symbiosis, to share our gift to the world with an unbiased agenda.

My mentor, Daisaku Ikeda says of art: "A beautiful flower delights and refreshes the hearts of all people equally, no matter what soil it grows in. That is the power of beauty. The same is true of great art. It is this spirit that the German poet Heinrich Heine sang of when he wrote that once the peapod bursts open, the sugar peas inside are for everyone to enjoy."

Let's be audacious, my friends!
