Thompson Springs is the project of Chicago native Matt Smith. His songwriting, which PBS called "a mix of folk with a western feel,” and love of the road and unknown, has led the band down a circuitous route on tours across Europe, New Zealand, and the expanse of America. The bands 2020 debut, Undertones, was recorded with the help of Wilco's Pat Sansone. Detroit Public Radio (WDET) noted that they pull influences from classic songwriters, like Tom Petty, to more recent indie artists, like Kurt Vile. 2023 will bring a new album, Standby, produced by Pat Keen of Humbird, and recorded live, featuring the full 6 piece band and the debut of harmonica player Ryan Suzuka. Thompson Springs have recently released a new album.

WORKSHOP

Chicago Blues

An intimate conversation about the Blues with Matt Smith of Thompson Springs. Matt will talk about his experience with playing blues in Chicago and the business of organising band tours, offering insights and helpful tips to other musicians aiming to go on the road. He also plans to lead a little blues jam. He says, 12 bar blues songs are easier to play than people think, they just have to get their heads around the format. Once you do, everyone can play it. Bring an instrument!
