"In 2004 , on Halloween night, Carl Thomas older brother was shot and murdered as the victim of a drive - by shooting back at home in Illinois. During this time Carl Thomas was promoting his 2004 album Let's Talk About It. This tragic event brought his life to a halt.
He mourned the loss of his brother for about a year. "I put the microphone completely down and I just wasn't interested in listening anymore to anybody. And I didn't really have a voice and I really didn't have anything to say and I think I stayed in my pajamas for about a year."
Now 35 years old, Carl Thomas is no longer signed to Bad Boy Records. He created his latest album, So Much Better, as a unsigned artist.
So Much Better is in store now.
