Richard Thompson is a guitarist, singer and songwriter. Getting his start in Fairport Convention, the legendary British folk rock band, his songs have been performed by REM, Loudon Wainwright and Los Lobos. He's also a solo artist with almost two dozen albums in his discography.
His newest album, Electric, gives his sound to a more straight forward rock focus designed to cater to a three piece band. Thompson talked with Off-Ramp producer Kevin Ferguson about the old days, his new album and more.
