Tim is a Nashville based session player, singer/songwriter and the 2008 International Fingerstyle Champion. Music has always filled the Thompson home; unknowingly it inspired Myles to pick up the violin at the tender age of five! By the age of twelve he was studying music theory and improvising with skill beyond his years it was clear that music would be his life. Today at the ripe old age of twenty Myles is also a prolific singer/songwriter and mandolin player. If you ask his dad or an audience member, they will tell you that Myles fancies himself as quite the comedian, most often at his dad's expense.

He has been featured in the following magazines, Taylor Guitar's Wood and Steel, Just Jazz Guitar and Fingerstyle Guitar which said, "Tim Thompson is a Nashville based finger-stylist that burns!"

The Thompson's most recent recording 21st Century Man has a strong focus on original singer/songwriter material that uniquely and skillfully intertwines virtuoso playing. When this new music was recently performed at the 2014 Walnut Valley Festival it met with rave reviews.
