When an artist appears on the scene with his own identifiable style and is comfortable and confident in his ability as a writer and performer you know he’s studied the greats and absorbed the essential elements of their craft. Australian musician James Thomson is one such artist. After being ‘discovered’ in 2013 by Stuart Coupe (ex-Paul Kelly + Hoodoo Gurus manager) - James was quickly signed to Coupe’s Laughing Outlaw Records and soon released two albums which drew glowing comparisons to JJ Cale, Gene Clark and Bobby Charles. Coupled with the magnetic draw of his live performances Thomson was soon marked out by press and fans alike as something special. James and his band have since toured extensively both Nationally and Internationally and have recently completed work on a highly anticipated third studio album.
