Rider-'RIDER' 11/27/96
Rider-'RIDE ON' 9/15/01
Rider-'ANY QUESTIONS?!!' 9/18/04
Two songs, 'Lookin' For My Baby' and 'Keep My Lovin' Alive' have been played several times on the ABC daytime drama 'All My Children', once as the featured song.





I have been involved in the music business as a singer/songwriter, guitarist/bass player, band leader/sideman for many years as a single or in duos, trios and larger acts. I have been a part of the playing, writing, recording and producing of several of these acts, but since 1995 have concentrated on my own writing and the recording of material that I have created. This has allowed me to complete and put out 3 CDs of original songs. 'Rider', 'Ride On' and 'Any Questions?!!'. While I record in a band context, all songs are easily performed acoustically since that's primarily how I write which allows me to do shows by myself as a singer/songwriter or as a duo with a lead player and I have had the great pleasure of opening for Lydia Pense&Cold Blood in that context. I appear as 'David Thompson & RIDER' in a band context and have opened for Ted Nugent, REO Speedwagon and a local signed act MadSide as well as several lesser known unsigned acts. Two of my songs 'Lookin' For My Baby' and 'Keep My Lovin' Alive' have been played on the ABC daytime drama 'All My Children' a total of 9 times on 8 episodes since July 14th, '03 and I have had 8 songs picked up by 3 publishers 'Essential Music', 'LA Music Library' and 'Transition Music' for, hopefully, future placements (you've got to be an optimist in this business). While I have enjoyed performing over the years with a full band it has been over the last 10 years that I have discovered the additional pleasure of performing my songs as a single or duo and the greater intimacy and connection with the audience that it provides. I can actually see eyes and expressions, which makes the performance more enjoyable for me and by extension for the audience. I continue to write and record and to seek out live performance opportunities for myself and to promote 'RIDER' as an opening act for touring major name bands playing concerts in Northern Calif. It looks like my goal of getting my music out to the public is starting to be realized, but, there's still a lot of hard work to do and additional goals to achieve, but, I truly believe that the odds are better than the lottery and besides, I think music is much more fun.
