On a Mission
Welcome to the warm, sophisticated light country/pop sound of Ed Thompson. With thoughtful biblical lyrics and smooth vocals, we are happy to introduce a new, vibrant voice in inspirational Christian music. L Although a veteran singer and performer (he has cut three solo albums and opened for such artists as Phillips, Craig & Dean, 4Him, and Bob Carlisle), On A Mission represents his first original work. The result is a wonderful mix of new contemporary Christian pop songs, ballads, and praise hymns. Several exciting talents collaborated in the production of On A Mission. Producing the project were veteran music makers Joe Linn (Joe Linn Trio, Integrity Music, Eden Records) and Jim Hawthorne of the award winning Spirit Wind Studios (The Supremes and Brad Gillis of Night Ranger). Applying truths of Scripture to music, Ed teamed up with long time friend and high-school football teammate, Rev. Jonathan Scott, for seven of the CD's ten songs. Coming from a very musical family, four 'Thompson Family' Gospel albums were recorded before Ed graduated from high school. He subsequently entered and won the nation-wide Christian Artist Seminar talent competition in Estes Park, Colorado, which resulted in his first solo album at age 17. His first CD, 'Be The One' was released in 1998 and features a great mix of ballads, praise hymns, and contemporary hits.
