Dominique Thomas Joins the Famed Pearl Drums Artist Roster

Pearl Drums is proud to welcome a stellar new member to their famed Artist Roster, percussionist, Dominique Thomas!  Hailing from drumming hot-spot of Philadelphia, PA, Dominique is currently supporting the three-time Grammy Award Winning singer/songwriter and soul sensation, Jill Scott, on her ongoing world tour, which is scheduled to continue throughout 2016.  Leading up to his full-time position providing the percussion perfection behind Jill Scott, Dominique Thomas has also touring and performed with Mos Def, Raheem DeVaughn, Maxwell, K’Jon, Syleena Johnson, and Questlove & Black Thought from the Legendary Roots Crew, and has also performed under some of the brightest spotlights on the world’s largest stages, including Jimmy Kimmel Live, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Dancing with the Stars, and others.  Most recently, Dominique Thomas joined Jill Scott for a tremendous performance of the single “Back Together” live on the Steve Harvey show, which can be viewed below.

Jill Scott is currently touring in support of her 2015 studio release, Woman, which hit the shelves this past July courtesy of Atlantic Records.  At the time of its release, Woman, immediately climbed to the top of both the Billboard 200 Chart and the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Chart, largely fueled by the wildly popular singles, “Fool’s Gold”, and “Back Together”. 

For the first leg of the ‘Woman’ World Tour, Dominique Thomas relied on the deep tones of Pearl’s Havana Series Congas and Bongos, paired with a set of Elite Brass Timbales, and surrounded with a plethora of Pearl Percussion bells, blocks, toys and accessories.
