Rob Thompson is a gifted singer/songwriter and guitarist from Swansea, South Wales. Rob first found international success as a founder member of the critically acclaimed band The Storys whose debut album in 2003 he co wrote and produced. Sir Elton John impressed by the band invited them to be initially special guests on his UK tour and Rob with The Storys went on to tour not only UK but Europe and Scandinavia for the next 2 years. Rob's songs can be heard in the American teen drama "One Tree Hill" and number 1 box office film "The Bank Job" in which he also briefly appears. "Dust" is Rob's debut solo album and his wonderful evocative songs showcase not only his abilities as a lead singer but also his unique and widely acclaimed guitar playing skills.
This is without doubt one of the best albums to emerge in 2010 and certainly the best of the year on the Angel Air label. Rob was previously a member of The Storys but has spread his wings and produced this solo effort. How can I best describe it? How about laid back, sublime, easy going, beautiful and catchy with plenty of memorable hooks and lyrics. It is an absolute gem from beginning to end and he should be very proud of this lovely collection of songs. Clever.
Wonderful first Album from former Storys lead guitar Man Rob Thompson , helped by former band members Andy Collins and The amazing Alan Thomas , this is a great debut , and the first of many albums I hope . Buy it now you will not regret it
I gave this a 5 star because the CD deserved it. There was nothing at all on the CD that I did not like. Rob's amazing guitar playing, his voice, and his amazing ability to story tell in his songs were amazing. Being a fan of the Storys, the CD was strangely familiar, like sitting in a favourite comfortable armchair. Rob had written/sung so many songs on previous Storys CDs so I knew that Dust would be something special! Well done Rob - brilliant CD - can't wait for the next one!
