Cai began singing at the tender age of 7 with the choir of St Thomas-on-The-Bourne in Surrey, under the direction of the Director of Music, Rob Lewis. It was here that Cai was first spotted by music industry experts. His debut album, Seren was made possible by a crowdfunding campaign supported by hundreds of Cai’s followers around the world.
Making an album is a new adventure for Cai, but he’s confident it will be a positive experience, creating new and exciting opportunities for his development as a performer.
Cai is currently a music scholar at Edgeborough School in Frensham. He holds the Bishop’s award for choral singing and has won competitions at local festivals and at school. He’s an accomplished soloist and regularly performs both locally in concerts and during choir tours in European cathedrals including St Mark’s Venice, Brussels and Cologne. He has released two singles in the run-up to his album; Suo–Gân and Ave Verum are available now on all major streaming platforms.
Seren is out 27th March.

Thirteen-year-old Cai Thomas marks the end of his treble career by presenting two special digital recordings: ‘Walking in the Air’ and ‘Wherever You Are’ which were recorded just before the UK went into its second lockdown. Cai chose to record ‘Wherever You Are’ to raise money for a children’s brain tumour charity in memory of his fellow school pupil.
OUT NOW! The calming, pure voice of Cai Thomas accompanied by pianist Julien Brocal in Vater Unser (Our Father) by Arvo Part is the perfect piece of music for these worrying times, and the perfect antidote to the stresses and strains of life in lockdown.
