James Thomson is an acclaimed songwriter and musician based in Newcastle, NSW, Australia. Thomson’s music tells an authentic story; masterfully pairing his enigmatic lyrics and vocals with blues, roots, country and rock influences. On the back of releasing two celebrated albums, James Thomson (2013) and Cold Moon (2015), James has earned a justifiable reputation as a leading figure within Australia’s Alt. Country/Americana scene. The high-quality songwriting and performances captured on these albums soon saw James and his band embark on a string of National tours where they established a reputation as an exceptional live act. Their hard work on the road was rewarded with invitations to tour alongside international artists Mark Olson (The Jayhawks), Simone Felice (The Felice Brothers), Robert Ellis, Joshua Hedley and Johnny Fritz, as well as invitations to perform at Nannup Music Festival, The Gumball Festival, Leaps and Bounds, Dashville Skyline and Bridgetown Blues Festival.
