John Thomson

Grew up central Auckland City as the only child (in the block!). Sang all 4 parts soprano/alto/tenor/bass in the chapel choir at Dilworth School. Discovered playing music with others in the Waitakeres in my late 20’s. Found Globe Tavern fame for a year with a punky blues band. Played a lot of corporate, pub and party gigs but always had undercover and underpaid bands. Played once with Joe Walsh – he walked into the Gluepot when I was playing there. Discovered the joy of playing with Holly Shepheard, my daughter. The last stanza of musical life can be the most creative and the most joyful and fun. JT+Agnostics is about that – original songs and a pensive selection from the blues songbook played with simpatico band members.
