Thomas Krane



Cities are changing and so are their builders. They are cities built on craft and big ideas, and the ones who are creating them aren’t afraid of hard work or getting their hands dirty. The benchmark for success has risen and those who are daring enough will rise up to meet it, wearing Dickies – the only brand that understands that you have to build the world you want to live in.

Music can be likened to a time machine. Just one song- the lyrics, the melody, the mood, can take you back to a moment in time like nothing else can. For Thomas Krane this is specifically true. Not just a band, Thomas Krane is an on-stage persona and is the brain child of Dan Hampton.

Created in 2008, Thomas Krane introduces an unapologetically raw, edgy tone to the South African music industry.  With Thomas Krane’s first album being so successful after its debut in 2009, fans were then given a long, 5 year wait to hear their second album, Bone Tower which was released in 2015.  Bone Tower launched to rave reviews and peaked at number 2 on the Apple Music Album charts on release with calling the album “Hauntingly beautiful and saturated with profound expression” 

Over the past 7 years, Thomas Krane has become a well- rounded artist who is recognised and loved by many for his soulful singing voice and insightful lyrics. Thomas Krane is someone who, over the years, has developed an appreciation for the Dickies clothing brand and recognises it for its long history and its high-quality clothing, saying he appreciates Dickies because “Dickies started as a workwear brand and has kept those roots, with really nice, good-looking pieces of clothing.”
