Rarely has the sorrow of parting sounded so sweet as on Teddy Thompson’s latest solo album, 2020’s Heartbreaker Please. An adoptive New Yorker for nearly 20 years – and a commanding, charismatic live performer - Richard and Linda’s son has long staked his own claim to musical greatness, here distilling his love of classic US rock and pop and the pain of a recent breakup into ten emotionally eloquent, potently melodic tracks, united by his gorgeous, Orbison-esque vocals. “Thompson’s plain-spoken words tap into something universal and his singing is as heartfelt as ever. Having your heart broken rarely sounds so appealing.” (Elmore Magazine)


Thompson also lent his production skills to Scottish singer-songwriter (and Steve Earle protégée) Roseanne Reid’s debut LP Trails, listed by the Sunday Times among 2019’s top releases. Crafting a lyrical, soulful, less-is-more blend of folk and Americana, she’s one of today’s most exciting new talents. “Reid delves into the human condition without a surplus word or note” (The Bluegrass Situation)
