Identity

Billy Thompson is a classically trained improvising violinist performing in numerous different styles of music.

In both 1996 and 1998 Billy reached the final of the televised Young Jazz Musician of the Year.

Since then Billy has gone on to perform with internationally acclaimed jazz artists such as saxophonist/composer Barbara Thompson OBE and pianist/composer Mike Westbrook OBE. Billy performs on five albums and a DVD with Barbara Thompson’s Paraphernalia and is an integral part of the wonderful Glad Day by Mike Westbrook featuring on the live DVD released last year. Billy has also performed and recorded with Salena Jones, Jools Holland, Neil Ardley (Kaleidoscope of Rainbows) and Huw Warren among others…

Billy performs regularly with his highly popular band Billy Thompson Gypsy Style https://youtu.be/OtcRbq2jA7I throughout the UK.

Other current projects include a live looping project with composer Warren Greveson called Dolennu and also a project with a highly talented singer/songwriter (and wine producer) called Gavin Crisfield.

During Billy’s time living in Wales, Billy has performed and recorded with many of Wales’ finest musicians and singer/songwriters including Meic Stevens (for ten years), Gai Toms (Mim Twm Llai), Heather Jones, Sian James, Delwyn Sion, Dafydd Iwan, Alun Tan Lan and Gwilym Bowen Rhys. During his time in South Wales, Billy was an integral part of The Amigos performing all around Wales and featuring on 3 studio albums.

Meeting singer/songwriter Rhian Williams (now Thompson) led to the creation of the Welsh band Amledd and the release of the album Cyfnod Cyntaf.

Now residing in Bala, North Wales with his family since 2005, Billy also runs a recording studio offering recording services, location recording and an online session musician service. For further details visit http://www.thompsoundmusic.co.uk
