"Russ Thompson "Acoustic""

Born in Mississippi, Russ Thompson has been a “southern boy” most of his life. And for 18 of his 27 years, he has
called Raleigh home.
I like this album. Funny thing is, I don’t really like Dave Matthews (send hate mail to Dave Rose at Deep South),
and I can certainly hear the Matthews influence here. Acoustic albums, while easier to record, have a more difficult
time conveying a sense of complete gratification to the listener because of the simple musical style. But with this
record, I almost find it difficult to imagine these songs performed any other way than with Thompson’s full rich voice
and an acoustic guitar that has absolutely amazing tonality in these recordings. Acoustic guitar players take note:
THIS is the way an acoustic guitar should sound.
“Stormy Boy” is the standout track on the record. Ben Harper fans take notice, you’ll like Russ Thompson, and
specifically this track. - Raleigh Downtowner


Still working on that hot first release.
