Kim Thomas has turned a background in Accounting and Economics into a successful career as a music industry professional, working with some of the biggest names in the business.
He is perhaps best known as the manager of The Whitlams – a role he held for over 20 years. During that time the band played over 2000 shows and enjoyed three multi-platinum & two gold albums. The 4 x Platinum album Eternal Nightcap (featuring enduring anthems like “No Aphrodisiac” and “Blow Up The Pokies”) became the biggest selling independent album in Australian history.
Kim is currently managing or co-managing artists such as The Getaway Plan, Oly Sherman, Yawdoesitall, Sarah Yagki & Ban Micah and has previously worked with a slew of other Australian artists including Magic Dirt.
Kim brings his immense knowledge of touring, marketing and management – combined with his specialist skills in music accounting and funding – to every class he teaches. A strong believer in collaborative, peer-to-peer learning and hands-on experiences, Kim is committed to passing on practical knowledge to the next generation of music professionals.
