ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"I am in love with Allen Thompson. His sound is desperate; Sometimes the desperation manifests itself in urgency, sometimes it settles down into heartworn melancholy. Influenced by the Steve Earle and Allman Brothers that he heard on his dad's knee, and the Dead, the Band and Velvet Underground that fueled his high school cover bands and bad decisions, and the country he's come back to (Lucinda Williams, Townes Van Zandt and Gram Parsons) he has become a songwriter's songwriter with a solid foundation in music history and sensibility.
The Highway EP, self-produced and released, is a strong collection of roots rock and alt-country that smacks of talent. Anyone who knows anything about music can hear that this boy from Roanoke, VA who is yet to turn twenty-five, is the real thing-perhaps still waiting for his training wheels to come off, but the real thing nonetheless.
From the twangy I Love Her to the hooky Heartache, its immediately apparent that he's not only good, but sellable. He's got a voice and he's smart as hell. Some of the songs he's out playing, too new for the EP, are enough to make you think that Gram Parsons is alive and well."


-Carra Woodham (DJ WQFX Radio Greensboro, NC)

If you think this CD is the Schmidts you need to hear his NEW RELEASE!!!!!! Check out his my space and listen in CD Release party is in Nashville April 9! Cara if you' haven't heard the new stuff you ain't heard Allen - He's surrounde by and backed by such artists as Bonnie Bramlet, Jack Pearson, and many more great stars. Chuck Level forerly the Alman Broth's, Sea Level, and now with the Rolling Stones says and I quote "Allen Thompson is one of the best new artists to come out of the South in recent times....he's got soul, he's got groove and he knows how to rock. With Jimmy Nalls' fine production and all the great musicians on the CD, it's on my highly recommended list!" Check it out y'all
