Having studied at Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University focusing on jazz and classical guitar, but not limited to purely blues and rock, Thompson has proved to be a truly multidimensional artist,

This enthusiasm and dedication helped propel him towards his debut as an international blues artist. In 2011, having played guitar for only six years, and at the age of 23 Rob completed his first tour of the USA, performing a number of shows across the country as well as touring with acclaimed American blues legend Ray Fuller.

Robs talent spans a number of genres including Latin, flamenco, classic rock, rockabilly, folk, pop-rock, and classical Indian music.    To this end, he has performed with various artists and groups associated with these genres such as Albert Frost, Guy Buttery, Robin Auld, Dave Goldblum, The Jack Rabbit Slims, Stuart Reece Band, to name a few, as well as the Four Winds Folk Club, the oldest of its kind in South Africa.

Throughout his career Thompson has been influenced by a wide variety of artists including Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, Eric Clapton, Albert King, Joe Bonamassa, ZZ Top, John Lee Hooker, Dan Patlansky, Paco De Lucia, Deep Purple, David Bowie and Brian Setzer.
