Translation – The British singer-songwriter Ian Thompson is from Liverpool, but now settled on the Isle of Man. He usually plays at bars and at private parties during the weekend. Ian already enjoyed international radio attention, such as in the USA, Australia, Italy and the Netherlands. Ian is supported by the Manx Art’s Council on his two last releases, the single ‘Inspiration’ that was released last May, and this album that saw the light of day last October. Ian wrote all the songs with his brother Jimmy. The music is more rock-oriented, such as the aforementioned single and ‘Hey Maybe’. I like the ballad ‘Stone’ better. Ian gets homesick for his hometown with the autobiographical ‘You’re My Liverpool’, a musical city that I want to visit because of The Beatles and the Mersey beat. For lovers of singer-songwriters.
