Some of the best folk rock music you've never heard of
Friday, September 26, 2008
Teddy Thompson, son of folk-rock legends Richard and Linda Thompson, has a new disc (his fourth) entitled A Piece of What You Need [ Verve Forecast ]. For this album, Thompson co usually co-produces and has production credits and guest appearances on albums from his parents and pals like Rufus Wainwright, hired outside producer Marius De Vries, known for his work with Bjork, David Gray, and Madonna, among others. One of my favorite Thompson songs, though, comes from his first self-titled CD, released in 2000, a song called So Easy, featuring Rufus Wainwright on background vocals.
