An Evening with Scott Thompson, Songs I Wrote and Songs I Wish I Wrote, promises to be one of the most entertaining and enjoyable events of the spring! Come enjoy a fun, live event with wonderful musicians, friends and good food. All proceeds benefit the Family Resource Center, a child abuse prevention agency. Presenting sponsors are Toles, Temple & Wright and Active Pest Control.
J. Scott Thompson is an audience favorite, endearing himself to crowds nationwide (and quite a few in England!) with his warm, easy going personality, powerful voice, and fresh style of Americana songwriting. Pulling from his Southern roots, Thompson writes from the heart and speaks to the soul with songs influenced by his Dad’s record collection of James Brown, Sam Cooke, The Beatles, and Otis Redding. A prolific songwriter and captivating performer, Thompson combines a Southerner’s knack for storytelling with a dose of southern charm making lifelong friends and loyal fans wherever he goes.
“Whether Thompson is singing, playing or simply speaking, the audience remains riveted.”
Harry Musselwhite, Georgia Music Magazine
A seasoned professional with over 20 years' experience in the music business, Thompson has played with or opened for legendary artists such as Steve Cropper, Leon Russell, Jimmy Hall, and Charlie Daniels to name a few. He has gained the status of being one of hardest working musicians on the circuit playing 150+ live shows a year on stages from Maine to Florida to Colorado and all places in between. His first two albums, Meant to Be and Live at the High Lonesome, met with critical acclaim and adoring fan appreciation.
Opening acts will be two local musicians in a songwriter's round, sharing stories of how their songs came to be and then performing the songs.
Thompson is currently crafting and perfecting songs for his next album with extensive touring and honing in front of live audiences.
