About Thomas Macokatic

Thomas Macokatic was born into music. Being the youngest of six kids, his elder siblings paved a creative and somewhat fluid musical road. His younger years were spent immersed in jam sessions around the family home. His mother painted their bedrooms with murals of iconic artists such as, Jim Morrison, Jimi Hendrix and The Beatles. The journey to becoming a singer songwriter for Thomas, can be described as more of a rite of passage.

This same innate and natural vibration is reflected in his craft. With no classical training, Thomas has a courageous expression. His techniques are learnt from his travells and surrounding musical community. Guitar, piano and vocals are his main tools to which he has been creating an explosion of alternate, folk/rock.

Currently, his music has grown from a soloist to a five piece band, that traverses the South East Coast of Australia. The band is comprised of five main members, Thomas on rhythm guitar and lead vocals, Gabe Argiris on drums, Nathan Richards on lead guitar, Dan Zyderveld on bass and Victoria Stanmore on violin and backup vocals.
