RJ Thompson is a singer songwriter from Newcastle-upon-Tyne, England.

RJ began his music career at the age of 15, performing at gigs and open mics around the North East of England. After seeing U2's live show at Manchester Evening News Arena in 2001, he picked up his guitar and wrote his first song a simple heartfelt song called Angel In The Undergrowth, which eventually made its way onto his debut album Hidden Daylight in 2003.

Following tours supporting Ultravox frontman Midge Ure, Duke Special, and headline tours throughout the UK, he went back into the studio in 2005 to record the follow up album Illogical Life. The 11 track album delved into the more extravagent and theatrical side of RJs music. The album featured the single Green Eyed, the Queen-esque Jester, and the epic Guards & Gunmen. The latter focused on his grandfathers experience in World War II. I remembered hearing all these stories growing up, and trying to put them to words, but I had never truly written a storytelling song until Guards & Gunmen came along said RJ at the time.

The album was quickly followed by 2007's Acoustic Sessions EP which pushed his career onto the next level. Three years of touring followed, supporting the likes of Gabriella Cilmi, Sandi Thom, The Proclaimers, John Mayall, Midge Ure (UK & German tours), Ultravox, Madeleine Peyroux, Deacon Blue, John Martyn, Joe Brooks, Gabrielle Aplin, David Ford, and Cara Dillon.
