Listen up! If you are a singer or someone with a decent voice and an eye on the lucrative entertainment industry, Earl Thompson wants to hear from you, in a hurry!
Earl Thompson is an ingenious songwriter, who utilizes his Jamaican roots as a form of inspiration. Originally from a district called Wood Hall in Clarendon, Jamaica, West Indies, Thompson has been telling his own story ever since he could remember.
While residing in Jamaica, Thompson took his schooling and education, seriously. While doing post-secondary studies, he developed an even deeper passion for writing. Thompson achieved his Diploma in Journalism while in Canada.
When asked what excites his passion for writing, he is quick to discuss his life experiences. For Thompson, writing gives him the medium to express himself through song, as he puts his experiences through life and love to use. After serving 12 years as a police officer, Thompson migrated to Canada where he lived for a number of years before settling down in New York City, USA.
Though his life was changing, he never stopped putting his pen to paper. Thompson enjoyed all methods and forms of writing, including screenplays, novels, poetry and eventually song lyrics.
After his tenure as a police officer, Thompson found himself desiring to take his writing career to the next level. Through winning multiple poetry competitions and optioning one of his original screenplays, Thompson ventured into the music industry with his natural songwriting abilities. In November 2019, through a mutual connection, he joined forces with Distrokid Records, an international label based in America. Thompson knew this was a step in the right direction in order to showcase his songwriting abilities to the world.
Thompson is eager to share his two latest songs, “You’re Everything To Me”, and “Georgia, Please Come Back To Me” with fans near and far, as he recently released them through DistroKid Records. These tracks are available on Spotify, YouTube and all other online stores. The songs are two of seven tracks on his debut EP – You’re Everything To Me – and soon to be available on all digital music platforms.
