Do you ever just listen to a small, widely unknown artist and just instantly enjoy their sound straight away? That’s exactly how I felt when I first listened to 20 year old performer Joseph Thompson.
This Northern lad is definitely an artist who has a plethora of potential that’s just waiting to be exposed. Despite only having two songs on his Spotify, you can tell the talent the young performer has. From his Declan McKenna styled lyrics to the pure emotion you can hear in his voice throughout the tracks, you won’t be disappointed by what you hear.
I think it’s safe to admit he probably won’t have people moshing along to him at gigs due to the nature of the songs, but the rawness in his voice and current but refreshing lyrics will leave everyone having a deeper thought than first expected.
From writing about politics to mental health issues in our country, it’s this type of music that just shows what our younger generation is suffering and feeling. His lyrics are so current and when you actually take a moment to listen they fully hit home.
It’s difficult for a lot of smaller bands to find their unique sound and set them apart from the thousands of other budding artists but I believe with experience and some gentle guidance Joseph has the talent to go far.
