James Thomson was pegged for great things right from the start. Author/label owner Stuart Coupe recognised his talent and released his debut album, which quickly gained media attention from journalists such as the Sydney Morning Herald's Bernard Zuel and Chris Familton of Post To Wire.
International supports, a second album (Cold Moon) and further critical acclaim followed, much of it centred on James' ability to capture the soul of traditional blues as wonderfully as he can channel both the freewheeling grooves and sweet sensitivity of 70s country-rock.
A new album is just around the corner and you may just get a sneak preview of some of it as James is joined by legendary guitarist Marty Burke for an afternoon at Flow Bar.
Caswell is back at Flow Bar with a new album "Mexico".
"D Caf (Damian Cafarella) and I have been talking about doing this album for a couple of years … an album recorded in Melbourne and working with my very talented Melbourne friends. What started as a joke rapidly became the name of the album. Marian felt there should be a song called Mexico … so we wrote one.
A lot of the album is Damian and I with Carlos … the nylon string guitar that Marian bought me from the Salvation Army Shop in Yass for $25. D Caf loves that guitar and insisted that we used it on every track. Beyond that we just kept adding our 'Mexican' friends."
