[DownBeat] Lil' Dave Thompson: New Blues Perspectives

Lil Dave Thompson: New Blues Perspectives
by Alex V. Cook

Like most blues artists working today, singer/guitarist Lil Dave Thompson is aware of audiences' expectations for nostalgia or familiar progressions. He also knows how to avoid them.

"I consider myself more contemporary with a bit of Delta style," Thompson said just before a set at Teddy's Juke Joint in zachary, LA. "I'll throw a shuffle or a slow blues on each album, just to hold on to that traditional style of blues, but at the same time I want to be more contemporary. I just don't want to stay in that bag."

Read the whole thing in the July 2008 issue of Downbeat, page 25.
