Rising star RJ Thompson is currently building name for himself in recent months as one of the UK’s strongest and most exciting up and coming singer-songwriters. His poignant lyrics capture the silent voice of a nation perfectly, with tracks that won’t fail to resonate with listeners of all ages, and all his songs are set against a colourful (and at times nostalgic) soundscape that goes far beyond modern-day singer-songwriter stereotypes.
Speaking about his graft to become a success, the Newcastle born musician says: “Up here in the North East there is a saying… “shy bairns get nowt”. You’ve got to put yourself out there, asking and doing, if you want to make any progress. So that’s what I did throughout my early years. I got out and posted my demos to all the local promoters, played at the grassroots venues, the local festivals, and any community event going – even those that had absolutely nothing to do with music!. Every single show has taught me something.”
And, RJ Thompson is back with a brand new single; a brilliant left-field cover of The Beatles classic ‘Come Together’. You can listen to the new version of the hit right here as we bring you the exclusive media premiere;
