My Life as Ali Thomas came into realization in 2013. It is an expression of ‘Pie’ Kanyapak Wuttara’s ‘other twin’, a songstress in isolation existing in contrast to her waking life. Ali Thomas became concrete when the songs created in Pie’s bedroom took shape. Her acoustic guitar and soulful voice resonates a longing for creative realization and old lovers, bleeding emotional honesty.

In 2014, Pie joined with guitarist ‘Rack’ Wipata Lertpanya and drummer ‘Taw’ Wannaphong Jangbumrung, combining a unique ambient Brit rock style with Pie’s distinctive folk sensibilities. What emerged was their unique and experimental sound.

In 2018, My Life as Ali Thomas has been focusing on creating new material and ‘Daydreaming’, their highly anticipated first single since 2016’s album ‘Paper’, will be released in November 2018, with a follow up single in early 2019. ‘Daydreaming’ is an evolution of the band’s signature sound, incorporating the 90s pop influences with their signature ambient, folk-rock sound.
