Dave Smith Instruments In The Spotlight With the Prophet-6 and RJ Thompson

You can find the full interview on DSI's website here.

"RJ Thompson has built a name for himself in recent months as one of the UK’s strongest up-and-coming singer-songwriters. His poignant lyrics and deeply-felt songs are set against a colourful (and at times nostalgic) soundscape that goes far beyond modern-day singer-songwriter stereotypes.

RJ’s hard-won success has come through consistence and persistence, having played innumerable grass-roots music venues, pubs, and clubs in his native Northeast England. His breakthrough came when a sound engineer for Live Aid organiser and Ultravox frontman Midge Ure was working at one of RJ’s open mic performances. The engineer liked what he heard and recommended RJ as a support act, leading to more than 30 shows touring the UK and Europe. Support shows with Gabrielle Aplin, Deacon Blue and Jools Holland (including a performance at the Royal Albert Hall) soon followed, as well as several EPs and a live album.

We chatted with RJ about how he’s using the Prophet-6."
