J.D. Thompson builds on the legacy of America’s most original storytellers such as Johnny Cash and Woody Guthrie, combining a lurid intellect with something more carnal, almost bordering on subversive. His deeply spiritual voice and mournful guitar work take the listener through the backwoods and back alleys of one man’s experiences on the fringes of purgatory and paradise. His debut album Chasing Demons, was produced by Hollywood legend Lou Adler (Sam Cooke, The Everly Brothers, Jan & Dean, Johnny Rivers, The Mamas & The Papas, and Carol King), showcasing stories and a style all his own.
“Automatic” is Thompson’s third original release showcasing his Southern-Rock roots, New Wave attitude and stinging Spaghetti Western inspired guitar.
