Live (Chicken Wire Records)

Local lad RJ Thompson has certainly been going places of late, supporting the likes of Jools Holland, and indeed this album features five tracks from his gig with Jools in Dublin, as well as five tracks from his acoustic headline show at Sage Gateshead last year. And it really is quite beautiful stuff, pop songs with real heart, and his voice is right on the money throughout. From the jaunty Walking’ After Midnight to the captivating Cannery Row to the rollicking A Better Life, RJ has got it going on and totally nails these lives shows.
