Bobby Thompson ProjectMay 7, 2016 | 0 comments
Awe-inspiring master guitarist and vocalist Bobby Thompson is no stranger to the blues and rock world. He cut his teeth learning to play in the old blues clubs of D.C. from the likes of Bobby Parker. After honing his craft as a much sought after support man, Thompson decided to step out as a solo artist, releasing three albums since 2011. A recent review from Roots Music Reports claims Thompson’s song portray “muscular blues-and soul-rock strong on soulful vocals and cut-above-the-norm originals.” With his smooth, gripping vocal stylings and his perfect musical taste on anything with a string, Thompson is what’s referred to as a “musician’s musician.” Considered a “must see” act of the Northeast Region. Bobby was nominated for the D.C. area Musician of the year award in 2015.
The Bobby Thompson Project is his latest collaboration with New Orleans groove master Jeff Mills and Mississippi bass extraordinaire Danny Infante. This trio is wrought with deep emotion and blazes down the path pioneered by the great Jimi Hendrix, blending deeply-rooted blues traditions with a popular rock edge to create a sound that will stir every soul.
