My Kind of Woman By Marty Thompson Gives Listeners A Dose of Texas Rock

26 May

Marty Thompson’s latest album My Kind of Woman channels everything you could ever want in a post-punk and psych rock crossover collaboration. With the album having textured synths and a dash of beach rock in their sound as well, Thompson excels at listener’s mind going on a vacation to think about the idea of surfing and relaxing on a beach somewhere. When thinking about the influences and where Thompson hailed, he cites Texas Rock and Psych-Country as being big inspirations. Although a dedicated love of music has always had Thompson involved with the idea of becoming a musician, he released his first solo album in 2015. Over the course of a lifetime, he has created over 200 pieces of original work and his live music has accumulated a total of 300 recordings. Standout tracks from the album include My Kind of Woman, complete with all the angst and grit needed in a rock song. Thompson not only characterizes everything from a country rock star, but he channels the rock and grit needed to make it as a musician.

Marty Thompson Brings Island Sound Within Romantic Stories

12 May

Marty Thompson combines feel good music with the modern sounds of classic rock and country in his album, Romantic Stories. Combining the real lyrics and the grunge feel of the guitar sounds and full sound, Thompson brings an island like sound to his overall tone. To add even more coolness and authenticity to the album, the entirety of it was composed while hiking in the Bavarian Alps while backpacking with his family. Set to release at the end of May, the track list highlights the places he visited and memories he created, adding a sentimental travel diary vibe to the album as well. While listening to the album, if your mind begins to wonder about all the variety of sounds, you’ll hear everything from Martin Acoustic Guitars to the Gretsch Mandolin, Congos, Bongos, and even the triangle! Having an extensive amount of experience within the music industry and as a creative, Thompson brings to the table a well thought out and intentional album with a rich sound, sentimental meaning, and inspiration for rockers everywhere.
