CUBOM Spirituality — Andrew Thomas and Jake Polancich

Solo acoustic rock/folk songwriter, guitarist, singer and all-around performer Andrew Thomas sings unforgettable lyrics and gripping melodies that warm the hearts of his listeners. Andrew's easy personality on stage is authentic, and his stories between songs captivate audiences with humor and reality. A glimpse at the diverse audiences he has performed for illustrates just how magnetic his music has become. The many high school and college-age students, urban professionals, children, church congregations, and others who have attended Andrew's performances have experienced an engaging, life-infused young man who simply loves to share stories of truth, love, faith, humor, and the challenges of everyday life through his music.
