Clearly inspired by artists like Townes Van Zandt, Sun Kill Moon and Neil Young, James caught the attention of the Americana community in both Australia and America, and was soon sharing stages with the likes of Mark Olson (The Jayhawks), Simone Felice (The Felice Brothers), Robert Ellis, Jonny Fritz and more.
The captivating sense of restlessness in Thomson’s song writing is organic; spending much of his childhood shuffling between Sydney’s Northern Beaches and rural towns of the Central West and Hunter Valley.
In 2014, following a three month journey through the strange corners of the American Deep South, James finished recording his eagerly anticipated second album Cold Moon.
Cold Moon, like James’ first album, was recorded and part produced by Grant Shanahan (Eva Trout, The Honeys and Perry Keyes Band) at Leisure Suit Studios, Spencer NSW.
“…Standing out from the crowd may take something special, the thing is, I think Thomson may be that something special…” Bernard Zuel (SMH)
