The artistry of Aileen and Elkin Thomas transcends traditional labels. This warm and charismatic couple create, perform, and record lyrical acoustic music that enlightens and nourishes. Sweet, acoustic country/folk, authentic and unpretentious.


TWO BY TWO combines Aileen and Elkin's first two albums on one disc. AILEEN AND ELKIN THOMAS, their eponymous first album, is a soulful and satisfying collection that includes favorites like "Gee Jake," a loving tribute to Elkin's Aunt Maedell and the joys of simplicity; "Lady, That's How Long I'll Be In Love With You," Aileen's favorite love song; "Bethesda's Pool;" "Halls of Time;" "Come Alive, Country Lady;" "Livin', Country Style;" "Palominos;" "Phone Calls;" "Back to the Hills;" "Soft Pipes, Play On." ARISE WE MUST BE GROWING, their second album, is a definitive work, with all-time favorites like: "Rocky Mountain Rainbow," a musical memory of a magical day spent high in the San Juan Mountains in southwestern Colorado; "Homecoming Sunday," the popular 'Singing School' song, which tells of Elkin's earliest musical training in shaped-note singing; "Shine On Me," the moving anthem that is being sung all over the world; "Are You Ready;" "Arise, We Must Be Growing;" "Blackwater River;" "Prairie Eagle Song;" "Georgetown;" "Little Boy Blue." Here is what The Victory Music Folk & Jazz Review said about ARISE WE MUST BE GROWING when it was released: "This is a unique album by two fine Texas musicians. Elkin Thomas is a successful Nashville musician who "retired" from mass-production music to a small farm near Dallas, where he and his wife, Aileen, raise chickens and goats and make some of the best homegrown music in the country. This album has both a gentleness and power which reflect the genuinely spiritual approach which these folks bring to their craft. Their vocal harmonies and instrumental work are simple, almost stark, reminiscent of traditional Appalachian music. Their arrangements are rich and full, with the able help of a number of fine sidemen, including Epic Records' recording artist, Charlie Daniels. Elkin is an excellent songwriter and sings with force and beauty of the times in which we live without preaching or moralizing."
