New Album From Ali Thomson

Words from Ali Thomson.

Ali decided to go back into the studio and record his 3rd album, “Songs from the Playroom”. Ali explains, “I love working with new artists and collaborating with other writers and producers but I’ve always had a desire to record my own music again.

The music business has changed so much since I made records in the 80’s and it has opened up for artists to release music without the restrictions and pressures of working with big record companies. I really did this music for myself but hope that my experience and creative instincts have helped to make something that others might enjoy”.

The Reason Why – New Song From Ali Thomson

“Songs from the Playroom” is a collection of 9 songs that are musical sophisticated but still melodically engaging. Ali recorded most of the album in his own studio with the occasional guest musician.

Guitar legend Robbie McIntosh (John Mayer, Norah Jones, Paul McCartney, The Pretenders) features on several tracks along with the brilliant Robin Mullarkey (Jacob Collier, Laura Mvula, Jesse Ware) on bass guitar. The opening song “Aqua Blue” is a collaboration with long time song writing friend Peter John-Vettese (Annie Lennox, Julian Lennon, Sia) and “Song for a Broken Heart” features a sax solo from Supertramp’s John Anthony-Helliwell.
