NEW solo acoustic album, "Two Minutes To Midnight" AVAILABLE NOW! Go to album page.

"Here is a British blues artist who delivers one of surely the best acoustic based albums you'll hear this year. The recording quality is excellent, and he's in great voice throughout and remains on very fine form as a musician but on top of that is a song-writer of the highest order. Very highly recommended!" - Peter Clack (Blues In Britain)

Reviews - one liners!

“Catch the Flame” is a great album by a major talent on the current blues scene. Peter Clack (Blues In Britain)

He knows how to nail a groove and deliver superb guitar playing across this album. Here we do have a British blues band offering us a quality not often associated with self-released UK blues-rock albums, and a guitarist who should be heard. SIMON REDLEY (Blues & Soul)

Keith Thompson Band are just amazing, their latest album is one of the best I’ve heard this summer!” - DJ Phil England

"The best album of the blues/rock genre I have heard in a long time" Hard Roxx Magazine

"An extremely Infectious blues/rock Album from Keith Thompson Band" Powerplay Magazine
