Adam Harris Thompson
Adam Harris Thompson has been writing and performing music since 2007. In 2015, he dropped his day-job to pursue playing music professionally. Based out of Augusta, GA, he averages 4-6 shows per week and has an extensive repertoire of songs. In February of 2015, he was awarded Favorite Solo Artist in the Augusta area at the annual Lokal Loudness award ceremony. Then, in July of 2015, he was invited to film a short interview and performance of two original songs for a WJBF News Channel 6 segment, that later aired on August 21st, 2015. Stylistically, he is somewhat versatile, with his solo style being closest to folksy, Americana, alt country, & singer songwriter; while his full band style is more legendary blues with a southern rock flare. He has been known to accompany himself in one-man-band fashion: a guitar in his hands, harmonica propped to his face, and a bass drum at his feet. And he is also able to play the banjo, keys, and bass guitar (depending upon the difficulty of the songs being requested). Within the wheelhouse of his band are virtually endless possibilities of different instrumentation arrangements. Adam is a great choice for cultured back yard parties, wine or beer tastings, wedding ceremonies, first dances, and events that might appreciate some lightly comical story-telling to accompany song selections. Adam has an inviting personality and relatable sense of humor. Whether booked as a solo act, duo, trio, or full band, each performance can be unique and different. A class act!
