Armed with a DMX drum machine, a kazoo, a Wurlitzer, some junky synthesizers, tubas, trombones, a robot, and a broke-ass piano, Mr. Thompson sings tales of the absurd and the everyday. Oh yeah - and the boy can sing.
The Brooklyn resident has a background in Jazz vocals and corporate entertainment. In fact he won the Jazz Vocal M.V.P. award at Boston's prestigious Berklee School of Music and went on to sing in high-class restaurants, stuffy hotels and big name corporate functions.
Now flying solo, Andrew's new single 'We're in Business' (released November 6th) is set to be this year's most thrillingly unusual, genre-defying pop song, about one man's love-hate relationship with a robot companion.
He seamlessly mixes a diverse palette of influences that include ELO, De La Soul and the legendary Muppet Show pit band - Electric Mayhem - into material that is familiar, yet impossible to pin down.
Fresh from supporting Clap Your Hands Say Yeah in the U.S., Andrew is currently recording his debut album scheduled for release in the new year.
