Will Thompson’s music career continues a musical legacy that has stretched across five generations of his family. While this versatile multi-instrumentalist from Panama City has explored a variety of musical styles, he has dedicated his art to country.

With his musical focus set, this up-and-coming artist has been promoting his debut album, “Turn It Up,” and looks to gather new fans in the Mobile Bay area through his performance at Manci’s.

“Turn It Up” is a collection of pop country anthems evocative of such artists as Jason Aldean and Brantley Gilbert. Throughout this album, Thompson injects mainstream rock and pop into each song. All the while, his backwoods soul vocals and twang-filled eclectic arrangements tend to keep his music firmly planted in the country world.
