Lo-Fi Chorus / Bio

Lo-Fi Chorus is the singer/songwriter project brought to you by Erik Thompson. It is rock and roll in the folk, soul and country traditions. It is dark, it is funny, it is complex, it is simple. Erik enlists musicians from many circles for recording and touring, quite often he performs alone. Erik has welcomed players from bands such as centro-matic, The Drams, Baptist Generals, Melt Moment Function and Dove Hunter. Erik has opened for the likes of The Supersuckers, Rogue Wave, Low, Old 97s, centro-matic, The Drams, The Frogs and countless great bands. Erik is very engaging performer and wonderful storyteller. He is a song crafter and consummate performer. He takes classical training into the garage and creates very intuitive melodies and interesting chord structures. He stands on the shoulders of giants and remains very Lo-Fi Chorus. Lo-Fi is active in anti-war activities, and has raised funds for groups such as the Humane Society, the Committee for International Peace and Men Against Violence. These politics are woven into the music with tales of fact and fiction in a way that stimulates the intelligent listener. Lo-Fi Chorus is the thinking person’s boot stompin’, bar ramblin, tall tale tellin’, contraband runnin’, whiskey drinkin’ music. Please, buy the records and come to the shows, thank you.....Good Night.
