Born into a farming family, and raised in East Kildare, Roy Thompson grew up in rural Ireland.
A lifelong connection with the land, and those who tend it, influences his songwriting, which is frequently laced with rural imagery.
His honest approach to songwriting, his trademark lyricism and fluid guitar style, draw the listener in to stories of folks and situations, not often told. Roy is currently putting the finishing touches to his debut CD being produced by Frankie Lane.
