Since 1978, Connecticut singer and songwriter Barry Thompson has toured and performed with several bands in the Northeast, playing a mean guitar or various other instruments in his arsenal. Often acting as front man, Barry has amassed a fan base important to any musician’s success. In 2002, he began writing, recording and collaborating with a group of talented musicians. Barry has a knack for writing sound beds that immediately conjure an era, a mood, a place or an emotion. His genres are amazingly varied, and include Patriotic, Rock, Blues, Latin, and much more.
Barry Thompson has dozens of songs licensed in the US and abroad. He took up music with great intensity at age 10, and began performing with professional acts at 18. Barry's performance work spans the styles of Rock, Jazz, Blues, Swing, Disco, Top-40, and many other musical genres.
Several of this talented artist's tracks presented here are both emotional and compelling. Notably, Barry's stunning rendition of the patriotic Battle Hymn of the Republic, and his sentimental cowboy tune, Home on the Range, are both standouts on our site for their authenticity and representation of an earlier era in America's music history.
