Oakland-based singer/songwriter Thadeus Gonzalez has earned international critical acclaim, and has been called “a front man to watch” with “an arena looking and sounding attitude.”
In Review: Silver Inside by Thadeus Gonzalez is a masterpiece of Rock, his musical vision is sublime and takes you into the heat of a beating heart. Hard edge guitar riffs, with vocals that cut deep, his ability to bring the music home is perfect.
Tracks that impale the senses on this album that are keystone and should be on the radio 24/7 – “Diamond High”, “A Murder When I Sing”, Walk Off A Cliff”, “Silver Inside”, “Bite It” and “A Real Class Act”. this album is the righteous follow up to his prior release Utopian Society which is still rumbling in the underground scene, that what makes this so much more magical.
An incredible songwriter and guitar player, Thadeus released his debut solo record, “Utopian Society” in 2014. The title track demonstrates total rock bombast; alt and punk influences come through in “Your Needle Scratches My Vinyl” and “Literally.” While the lyrics are evocative and unusual, Gonzalez’s unique writing style is most evident in the sexy, moody “Our Connection” and the vulnerably revealing ballad, “White.” Typical review: “Around each corner a total surprise, which keeps “Utopian Society” fresh and relevant sounding from track to track.”
Over the last several years Thadeus has fronted several bands within the Oakland-San Francisco Bay Area and by 2010 he enjoyed opening for various high-profile gigs throughout the west coast and commendable radio and video play before pursuing a solo career with Thadeus Gonzalez in 2014.
