Tickets – £11.00

Singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist RJ Thompson has shared brand new single ‘Your Money Or Your Life’, the artist’s first release since 2020’s sophomore album Lifeline. Staying true to his artistry, the track – co-produced by Adam Sinclair – boasts RJ’s impeccable songwriting and impassioned vocals, backed by an upbeat indie-pop soundscape and plenty of playful synth. With reflective lyricism, RJ continues to create music that successfully combines relevant and relatable concepts with euphoric pop sensibilities.

Dubbed ‘Synth Springsteen’ by the UK media and influenced by the likes of Beck, Brandon Flowers and Bleachers, RJ Thompson’s artistry merges brilliant storytelling with a signature nostalgic sound. He’s received lots of love on BBC radio from the likes of BBC Radio 2, 6Music and BBC IntroducingThe Times claims that he is ‘one to watch’ while The Guardian hails the artist as ‘prolific’, with additional acclaim from the likes of Wonderland and CLASH.

RJ Thompson continues an innately innovative approach to his craft with new music; and we can’t wait to welcome him back to Sage Gateshead in September!
