"Where Mike Thompson has been all these years is anyone's guess, but on the evidence of this album, it's only a matter of time before he gets noticed." - Rob Evans, PowerPlay Magazine UK
"If you are looking for normal rock and roll music then this simply is not the CD for your player. From the opening strains it is obvious that this is a work of love.." - Dashal Jennings, The Daily Banner
"Out of My Head - #2 Independent Album of the Year" - AOR Underground
While the debut album, Out of My Head, was written more in the style great story-tellers, Mike took a different direction for his new release Needful Things. The music and lyrics were crafted to create emotional responses. This was a big change of approach. "At first I thought it would be very difficult, to mold arrangements and string lines together to build musical scenes. After a little realignment and a lot of discussions with collaborators, the music began to flow. I'm thrilled with the way it all come together."
Mike Thompson was born and raised on the beautiful Gulf Coast of Florida. His travels have taken him literally around the world, but he always seem to follow his wondering feet back home. Mike says he loves the slow pace, friendly people, and the connection with nature that you get there. He certainly feels the pain of being and independent artist, but he relishes the freedom to create that comes with it.
