Justin Thompson is a songwriter and performer from Albuquerque, New Mexico with an affinity for traditional folk music and the acoustic guitar. His persona and lyrics are as poetic as they are rough around the edges, and both lend themselves to honest and energetic performances. With an instinctive knack for melody and prose, Justin's songs are as singable as they are poignant. For this special concert, Justin will be celebrating the launch of his Kickstarter campaign to fund the release of his debut solo record, Hymns for a Manchild, which has been carefully crafted over the last year at Empty House Studios in Albuquerque, NM. Justin will be accompanied by a trio backing band including Melanie Williams, Ky Burt, and Gabrielle Louise.

Melanie Williams plays bass and percussion for Justin's show. Her radiant soprano harmonies and supportive bass lines surround Justin's melodies. We have come to call this phenomenon the "Mel Train". She is one of the more well-rounded musicians Justin has had the liberty of sharing the stage with.

Ky Burt will be playing mandolin, banjo, and guitar. Ky hails from Flagstaff, Arizona where he has developed a unique yet rooted folk style. Though he is an agile musician with impressive technical prowess, his humility is disarming and allows the audience permission to connect to his performance. Ky's musical knowledge is a well-traveled suitcase with a collection of melodic relics and stylistic nuances.

Gabrielle Louise will support Justin playing guitar, mandolin, keyboard and percussion. Gabrielle has an alluring stage presence, stylized harmonies, and inventive instrumentation that have become an integral part of Justin's live act. They have an undeniable consonance when it comes to duets. Though she is a powerhouse act on her own, Gabrielle blends with Justin's style to create a distinctive sound.
