Kyren Thomas

What are some of the things you are passionate about?

My biggest passion has to be music. Besides that, art direction and idea conceptualisation for bars and nightlife venues have to be my next favourite things.

What drives you to achieve the things that are important to you?

I reckon the biggest thing that drove me to get into music was the fact that I truly believed in my heart of hearts that I was meant to do it. I always believed that I would rather be a poor old man who loves his job more than anything than a rich old one who wakes up every day regretting the fact that he never pursued his real passions and goals.

What is your philosophy in life?

Approach everything with an open mind and heart. Also, to never doubt myself.

How do you define success?

Success to me is personified in happiness. Once you’re truly happy in life you’re successful.

August Man Malaysia is a magazine for the discerning gentleman, what makes a gentleman in this era?

Manners and the mental capacity to realise the importance of knowledge and class in every man.

Describe your sense of style.

I reckon I might have the craziest style sense amongst the other epic gentlemen on this list. I don’t pin myself down to a single style. To me, clothing is like my music and emotions vary from day to day, so I just keep things fluid always.

The A-Listers is about experiences. Describe your ultimate experience.

My ultimate experience is playing in festivals and sharing massive stages with world-class musicians, both of which I have achieved. To me it’s now a matter of playing in larger festivals and sharing the stages with bigger and more famous artists and musicians.
