Awe-inspiring master guitarist and vocalist Bobby Thompson cut his teeth learning from the best. After honing his craft with blues legend Bobby Parker, Thompson set out on his own to great acclaim, and he was nominated for Musician of the Year by the Washington Area Music Association in 2015. Thompson’s latest collaboration, Revelator Hill, takes its cues from the searing blues-rock hybrid pioneered by Jimi Hendrix and blends it with a popular rock edge to create soul-stirring sounds that are as technically impressive as they are fiery and brilliant.
