Introduction & Musical Style
Meet Lance Thompson, a contemporary R&B artist hailing from Shreveport, Louisiana. Lance's journey into music began at a tender age, singing and dancing with his family in the living room.

He found inspiration in artists like Stevie Wonder, The Beatles, James Brown, and many more. Lance sees music as a divine gift and is profoundly grateful for it.
Musical Style & Inspirations
My mother passed away when I was 16 years old. To be honest, the driving force behind my music really is Jesus. Without him, I wouldn't have the strength to even create memories through songs. Hardships that come from loss can harden the hearts of people. When Jesus came into my life, the hardened heart I carried became soft and fertile to grow in love again. That's why I create music. Everyone will experience loss someday, and I hope my songs will help them see the light in their darkness.
