Description

Shakespeare Avenue was recorded in Dartmoor, in the South-West of England with Mercury nominated producer Sean Lakeman, the album takes its name from a street in Bath, Somerset where Thompson's late Grandfather lived, before he left his home for Australia.

In the reverse of his Grandfather's journey, for Shakespeare Avenue Thompson moved his family to Dartmoor to write and record with a new approach that delved further down the folk path, spurred by his connection with good friend Seth Lakeman. The new album is a contemporary take on Thompson's rich and distinctive folk and acoustic roots and his narrative, character-based, emotive songs have earned him comparisons to Springsteen and Mellancamp, however this time there is also a distinct Richard Thompson, Christy Moore, Dick Gaughan folk edge. The album continues in this vein of song writing, interweaving political and social commentary with personal, human tales.
