Allen Thompson / Press

“ “But for all the shining moments, none shine brighter than "Everybody Knows," a deeply soulful, heart-on-the-sleeve, take-no-prisoners ballad that is arguably one of 2012's best songs.. It is the very definition of an artistic mission statement. This is the kind of song that many artists strive lifetimes to write and never do. Thompson has hit a homerun with this one and it is something he should not lose sight of.””

Gregory Robson - Absolute Punk

"Salvation [In] the Ground is a gem, with music that becomes richer and more personal as you get to know it better.”

Sara Reitman - Grateful Web

“With this batch of ragged-but-right country originals, he's clearly ahead of the curve ... fresh tunes from a very fresh face in Americana”


“It takes a courageous performer to swing the door wide open on a record, and it takes a skilled one to make you want to come inside to hum, sing, and dance along.”

Country Standard Time

“Allen Thompson is one of the best new artists to come out of the South in recent times.”

Chuck Leavell

“Sometimes, Allen Thompson sounds like he’s just barely hanging on at the edge of frenzy. Whether he’s fueled by angst or ecstasy is a good question.”

Vintage Guitar Magazine

“Allen Thompson is a child of the south, soaking up the culture and the southern gothic experiences in equal measure. The lessons learned and the music heard are showcased in his tales.”

Alternate Root Magazine

“[Allen Thompson's voice] has a nice haunting quality.”

Maud Hudson

“These are amazing songs that provide thoughtful lyrics presented with unexpected twists. The music is the best of Americana.”

“One of my favorite CD’s currently in my rotation.”

Kelly Dearmore - The Gobblers Knob
