A student from Woldgate College has just produced and released his first album, and all from the bedroom of his home in Melbourne.

Joe Thompson’s album, ‘Do It On The Radio’, features 17 tracks, all written and performed by Joe, where he undertakes two genres. Half the album is stripped back folk, and the remainder adopts a garage rock root. Joe, 17, said: “The experience was more fulfilling than anything I’ve ever done. To set out a goal in December with no money, and to achieve it despite such limitations was immensely enriching.” To order a CD copy of Joe’s album, visit www.facebook.com/joethompsonsongwriter, and inbox to there. Copies are £5, with £1 of that going to charity.
