As a writer
introspective and honest
Being well versed in the starkly emotional songs of Joni Mitchell, Bob Dylan, John Lennon, and Randy Newman, Thatcher has developed an introspective and honest writing style that explores themes ranging from joy and learning to love and loss. Thatcher also enjoys writing character songs about people and places that he has only either imagined or heard of, while retaining the human touch.
As a bassist
technical and versatile
Studying with Joseph Holt at the Berklee College of Music, Thatcher developed a technical ability that serves him whether he is playing Bach or the blues. Studying music theory and harmony with Rod McCaulley and listening to a wide swath of music gave Thatcher the ear and interest to play masterfully in various genres on both the upright and electric bass alike.
