The Gambler

Ty Thomas bets his future on his infamous con man pop and some high school sweethearts

While Thomas is hesitant to talk about the songs he's written ("A song's not good until someone else says it is," he suggests), he does admit that they range from what he calls punk rock with modern touches to hip-hop and even a bit of country and reggae. In every case, he assures, the lyrics are out front.

"They all tell a story," says the brown-eyed Bingham, who has been singing in theatrical productions since 1997. "I think people are really going to relate to them."

Patient and meticulous, Thomas acknowledges that the realization of his dream is still in the future. "We might be there in another six weeks, or it might take another year," he says. "Right now, the focus has been on rehearsals and the upcoming live performance. After that, the serious studio recording will begin." Only when he has a demo tape he's satisfied with will he take his dream to the marketplace.
