Ural Thomas is universally recognized as one of the most exciting singers remaining from the original soul era, and an active musical institution for over sixty years. His catalog has slotted into countless sweet, seductive mixtapes between James Brown, Otis Redding, and Stevie Wonder. Leader of the rhythm and blues vocal group The Monterays, his success brought him to Los Angeles where he caught the ear of industry bigwig Jerry Goldstein. Goldstein brought him into the studio with arranger Gene Page to record two landmark 1967 singles. Ural Thomas and the Pain have released two full length albums: 2016's self-titled release and 2018's The Right Time. They return with Dancing Dimensions, their third record together.
