Wailsharq is a one person band offering levity, improvisation, baritone vocals and eclectic genre hopping. A native of Kalamazoo, MI, Thompson has been a session musician for Double Phelix recording collective for three years and has toured with multiple bands throughout Michigan’s burgeoning festival scene. His new EP “An Evening with wailsharq”, released in early 2015, was mixed in Portland by Larry Crane.

Wailsharq’s music offers a looseness that tends to put audiences at ease while being energetic enough hold their attention. [+]
