Fort Wayne's Bryon Thompson plays a Godin A6 electric/acoustic hybrid guitar to produce a shiny sound that is capable of turning out a wide range of moods. "Wish You Well" is quiet and contemplative, while "Scuffle" possesses an infectious bounce. "Intro/Gloss" is all bombastic rock, while "Almost There" is jazzily atmospheric.
The only downside of Thompson's self-titled CD is that most of the 11 tracks are disappointingly short; they're brief musical snapshots that tend to end just as they're hitting their stride. It's a minor complaint; the songs are fun while they last.
