Jeff Thompson is a singer, songwriter, guitarist, and performer. He also loves doing other people’s tunes, as long as they’re absolutely brilliant! He sings and plays guitar and some keys in a Radiohead tribute band, for instance. That one’s called “Off With Your Radiohead,” and you can find a link on this website to learn more about that project. He also sings with a Steely Dan tribute band called Dirty Logic.
He likes to wear fedoras and blazers. He likes when spontaneous conversations with strangers and friends proceed like improvised poems. He often wishes he had a tape recorder in his hand. He usually ends up texting choice phrases to himself, so that he won’t forget them. Most of his lyrics come to him, melodies in tow, in the shower or in the last drops of dreaming before waking wipes the slate of his mind dry for the day.
He was born and raised in the same city that spawned Louis Armstrong, Harry Connick Jr., Dr. John, and Lil Wayne. His style sounds nothing like any of them. Except maybe Harry. A little bit. Sometimes. He left New Orleans at a pretty young age, and has lived just about everywhere else since then.
