Album Notes
Oklahoma born and raised,J.D.builds on the legacy of America's most original storytellers such as Johnny Cash and Woody Guthrie, combining a lurid intellect with something more carnal, almost bordering on subversive. His deeply spiritual voice and mournful guitar work take the listener through the backwoods and back alleys of one man's experiences on the fringes of purgatory and paradise. His debut album Chasing Demons, was produced by Hollywood legend Lou Adler (Sam Cooke, The Everly Brothers, Jan & Dean, Johnny Rivers, The Mamas & The Papas, and Carol King), showcasing stories and a style all his own. His second album, a self-released compilation titled My Perfect Nightmare explored a darker side of Thompson’s songwriting. In 2010, Thompson returned home to team-up with some of Oklahoma’s blues royalty to form a new band, The Big Bad Wolves. JD Thompson and the Big Bad Wolves produced an LP with Watermelon Slim's mythic rhythm section, the Workers.

For nearly a decade, Thompson traveled across the U.S. and beyond until one fateful afternoon in Dublin, Lou Adler discovered Thompson buskin on the street. He soon found himself recording with stalwarts Mike Elizondo (Ry Cooder, T-Bone Burnett, Fiona Apple) and Joey Waronker (Beck, R.E.M., Elliot Smith) with Adler producing. The result: a brilliantly crafted album entitled Chasing Demons, recorded both in Dublin (Sun Studios) and L.A. (Shangri-La Studios, Phantom Studios, and Adler’s ‘bu Haven Studio),mastered by Bob Ludwig (U2, Bruce Springsteen, Paul McCartney).

"Automatic" is Thompson's third original release compiling over a decade of recordings showcasing his Southern-Rock roots, New Wave ethic and stinging Spaghetti Western inspired guitar.
