Debut Single Available Now!

Devon Thompson’s debut single and accompanying music video “Soft Like Water” is a truly elemental work of art.  Like a river winding towards a waterfall, It flows gently at times and pounds down furiously at others.  It’s fluid qualities reflect the multi-faceted nature of the singer/songwriter/guitar player.  Water can take on many forms and it’s likely Devon Thompson’s music can do the same.  Whether that form is of soothing rainfall or a driving thunderstorm, we look forward to more releases drifting our way.

Though not based in NJ, Devon Thompson has a strong connection to the Garden State.  Christopher The Minister, a Music Industry Veteran, fixture of the NJ music scene,  Yoga studio owner/operator and, of course, On-Air Personality on 95.9 The RAT, discovered the young artist.

Describing a subtle part of his everyday life Minister said:

When I’m not doing the 7-12 Gospel show on WRAT,  I’m always on the look out for new artists who have music roots from the 60’s, 70’s, 80’s.

Minister has a history of working with high-level talent.  He managed Daniel Ash of Bauhaus and worked with the likes of Puscifer, The Flaming Lips and many more.  He’s already logged a decent amount of time with Devon Thompson, who he believes has a bright and dark musical future.  He said:

 “I have spent the last 2 years working with Devon who I knew had this Rock / Dark Vibe waiting to come out.

We’re definitely feeling that on “Soft Like Water.”  The song is available for streaming now on Spotify, Apple Music, and Tidal.

The video for “Soft Like Water” perfectly compliments the song with broadcast television-grade production values.  Shawn Simon is the video’s Executive Producer.  It was produced, directed, and edited by Brian J Nichols.  Wey Wang served as the Director of Photography.   Color timing was performed by Ron Nichols.
