Paul Thompson is a singer-songwriter from Norfolk, England. His music has taken him around the world, performing across Europe, the US and Canada as a solo artist. Drawing on musical influences such as Neil Young, Nick Drake and James Taylor, Paul has developed a style of his own using a loop box in live performances to capture his multi-layered approach to song writing.
Inspired by the call of the wild, Paul lives in a remote part of North-Norfolk, where he has converted a cottage into his recording studio. Paul writes and records all the parts to his songs (with a little help from his friends on backing vocals), and he is currently completing his third CD. The songs were written following his latest tour of Alaska and Canada, 3 months spent travelling solo across 5,000 miles, exploring some of the most beautiful landscapes in North America.
Paul kept a blog of his tour, which he has re-written and can be found in the tour diary section of his website, www.paulsmusic.co.uk. His incredible journey took him from Anchorage to the remote islands and peninsulas of Alaska such as Sitka and Homer, before crossing into the Yukon in Canada. Performing to warm and appreciative audiences, Paul made his way through Vancouver Island, British Columbia and the Rockies, completing his tour in Calgary.
He is currently planning his next tour to coincide with the release of his forthcoming CD, and would love to hear from anyone in the UK or Scandinavia interested in booking him at their venue, or any potential hosts for a house concert.
