Richard 'Cookie' Thomas draws his inspiration from the likes of Nat King Cole, Frank Sinatra, and Johnny Hartman. You can hear a bit of each when Richard sings.

A versatile vocalist, and an undiscovered treasure, Richard 'Cookie' Thomas’ career began in Philadelphia in 1960 when he had the opportunity, at fourteen, to open for B.B. King. Richard also performs with guitarists Chris Morrison, Carmine Marino and John Cain. Drummers include Bobby Leonard, Don Mulvaney, and Arti Dixon, who toured with Ahmid Jamal.
