Album Notes
Allister Thompson is a Toronto, Canada-based singer, songwriter and guitar player, inspired by the folk greats of the Seventies such as Tim Buckley, John Martyn, Sandy Denny and Nick Drake as well as early progressive rock and ambient music.

After a varied career in bands, the highlight of which was a number of years spent with cult glam band Crash Kelly, he spent the winter of 2008/09 holed up at Studio W19 in Toronto with producer Michael Dilauro working on his first studio solo album, "Shadowlands".

The music on this record is a stew of different musical styles, ranging from melodic folk-rock to psychedelic pop, acid folk to symphonic progressive rock and ending with a 9-minute full blown Krautrock-esque piece featuring Mongolian-style throat singing.

"Shadowlands" is the culmination of years of writing and experimenting, as well as the fruit of months of creative collaboration between Allister and a large cast of singers and musicians on guitar, bass, drums, organs and mellotrons, violins, flutes, rainsticks and space cymbals.
