Album Notes
"A chance meeting through Facebook led me to singer-songwriter and guitarist Bobby Thompson and his incredible album By The Hand, which consists of ten delicious blues influenced rock songs. Being a diehard Eric Clapton fan, who followed his career through The Yardbirds, John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers, Cream Blind Faith, Derek and the Dominos and his solo career, it is easy for this writer to hear the channeling of Eric Clapton in the pre Cream years and post Derek and the Dominos years, whether Bobby Thompson is conscious of it or not." - Riveting Riff Magazine

The BobbyThompson Project (BobbyT Project) was formed shortly after BobbyT finished touring the US with reggae rockers SOJA and See-I. Building a new fase base around the county was a by-product of BobbyT being a part of 6 to 8 piece bands playing rock shows in front of thousands from California to Vermont. While off the road in January 2010, BobbyT started writing new songs from scratch, culminating in his first single 'Good Things That We Have' which was produced by Todd Wright, who also happens to produce Pat McGee, Shane Hines, Toby Lightman, and many other artists in the pop-folk world. The single is Bobby's first excursion into the realm of pop-blues, ala John Mayer and Eric Clapton. It worked, and the song is now a fan favorite.

So the songwriting continued and Bobby got together with his band, plus a cast of musical all-stars, like Ron Holloway (Gov't Mule, Dizzie Gillespe, Susan Tedeshi) and Tommy Lepson, and began the sessions that would produce the blues-rock album 'By The Hand'. Released in March 2011 and produced by drummer Gary Crockett, the album represents Bobby's skill with blues, and blues-rock, showcasing both his guitar chops and singing, while never straying from the song. Obvious influences include Ben Harper and Warren Haynes, but you can hear the blues greats, you can hear some Neil Young and Tom Petty and some young Clapton. For Bobby, this is the beginning of his album-making career.

The 2nd album is already underway. A continuation of the sessions for 'Good Things', Bobby has plans to record an EP with an array of session musicians, to be produced by Todd Wright. Song titles like 'Again', 'I Came To See You', and 'Down To Here' are the first songs to be written in Todd's new studio.

Look for Bobby on tour during the spring and summer, and the new EP to be released by late summer.
