Too Close to the Sun

by Pete Thompson

"It's in the pocket. It's all about the groove. When you get the feel right, your body starts to move. This ain't no Brubeck, it's hardly jazz. Sliding on the back beat. Ya gotta feel the rhythm can you dig it?"

Album Notes
Too Close to the Sun is Pete's second solo release. Much like his first, 'Open Window', he draws upon a variety of musical influences while maintaining a fresh take on each, often blending them to create songs that are at once unique and familiar. As a multi-instrumentalist, he can realize what he hears "in his head" creating rich musical soundscapes that you can find something new in every time you listen. He also knows his limitations and has gathered a fine group of musicians to help him on this project: Shannon Day, Rusty Burns, Beau MacDougall, Michael Dimitri, Rod Davies, and his son Kit Thompson have all contributed their enormous talent in the making of 'Too Close to the Sun'. Derek Holt, formerly of Climax Blue Band, has also graciously allowed Pete to cover two of his original songs, 'A World Above' and 'Easy In My Shoes', and says he is very happy with how they turned out.
Pete Thompson has spent a lifetime making music playing all styles of music. Known primarily for his work as a drummer for such artists as Robin Trower, Pete Haycock, and Robert Plant, he is now expanding on his composition and productions skills. He has his own studio, Texas Central Productions where he has free reign to create his own music, and as a producer helps others to realize their own musical vision.
