Chris Thompson is a rising new musician in acoustic and finger style guitar. Since signing with Sleeper Records in 2012, Chris has been developing his sound, touring from all over Ontario to Eastern Canada, appearing at the Eaglewood Folk Festival, Mariposa Folk Festival, Live from the Rock, Ashiko World Music Festival and Roots North Music Festival and sharing the stage with Maneli Jamal, Adrian Legg and Jason Fowler.
Coming from those experiences is the May 2015 release of Chris’ third studio album, Silas. Produced by Jim Bryson (The Weakerthans, Kathleen Edwards), Silas is available for purchase June 2 from itunes and christopherthompson.ca. Chris is travelling on a coast-to-coast spring and summer 2015 tour across Canada to bring his eclectic acoustic sounds across the country.
“He is confident in a playing style that is well beyond his years. When you see Chris play you won’t believe he wasn’t born tapping a guitar.” – Aaron Howes, Owner/Founder of Sleeper Records
“Christopher Thompson is one to keep an eye on. His technical ability and poise set him ahead of most guitarists his age, and set the stage for an exciting future.” – Alyssa Wright, Orillia Folk Society Artistic Director
