“I want to share my experiences and be transparent to the world. With the highs and lows that I sincerely go through in this song, I just hope that people can relate and feel those moments and emotions with me.” Thoms first release was “Conviction” and after a positive support, he released “Do Me All Again.” Check out his awesome music video here.


After working with Luca Chesney, Ardency and Luca have created a beautiful and unique sound by using the voice of Luca to create such a  nostalgia movement. The duo had this to say about their track: “Prayers is a song we’ve been working on for quite some time; the song embodies a more reminiscent side of our music. So much love to Luca, her lyrics and vocal melodies are inspired and beautiful.”
