Chris & Meredith Thompson
Chris and Meredith Thompson
Chris & Meredith Thompson are "powerful performers with a natural warmth for the live concert stage" writes Tom Lounges in the Beat. Best known for the unique blend of their nearly identical voices, the Thompsons weave vocals, flute, guitar and percussion together creating a sound that is genuine, beautiful, and powerful. These identical twin sisters grew up down the street from Stone Soup Coffeehouse in Providence RI. They played their first show at Stone Soup in 1992, and have since played in venues across the US and released five albums. Chris plays percussive, riff driven guitar.
Meredith plays authentic Latin rhythms on congas and adds flute to their sound.
Both sisters sing in close harmony both earthy and ethereal. The Thompsons link music and stories together to create an engaging, animated performance rich in texture, mood and character. The Thompsons tell stories that resonate with the audience, stories that celebrate common experience. "It is their mix of intriguing stories of people´s hopes and histories that makes the Thompsons music so compelling" writes MaryAnn Robertson, Spotlight, Portsmouth, NH.
With the release of their fifth CD, Clearwater, Chris & Meredith Thompson establish themselves as artists of consequence, showcasing the variety of their compelling harmonies, lyrical expression and arrangements and well penned lyrics. Chris & Meredith Thompson achieve a vocal harmony known uniquely to siblings. At times, their voices effortlessly combine in harmony as if they were two parts of one whole. Then, just as effortlessly, the individual voices will emerge, creating a vocal sound that has become their trademark.
