New York, NY (Top40 Charts/ Thompson Ward Official Website) - Guitarist Bryan Ward is no one-trick pony. Now the country-funk riffmeister and other half of the Mississippi duo Thompson Ward (, Ward was once a Bonepony, though.
Formed in Baltimore, Maryland in the late '80s, Bonepony grabbed their mandolins and fiddles and signed with Capitol Records.
In 1995, Capitol released their debut album Stomp Revival, a quirky mix of bluegrass and hard rock that puzzled corporate suits and eventually fizzled in an Americana scene that hadn't fully awakened yet. They were dropped by the record label two years later, their Next Big Thing status abruptly taken away.

With vocalist Steve Thompson, Ward is giving rock & roll another shot. As with Bonepony, Thompson Ward reels in their classic-country influences but reboots them by adding other styles, mainly '70s funk.
The band's appropriately titled first album, Porch Funk, has drawn comparisons to Black Oak Arkansas and Lynyrd Skynyrd in its combustible mix of Southern-fried boogie rock and vintage R&B.
The album's single, a rocking cover of Jim Stafford's novelty hit "Spiders and Snakes," has received substantial airplay on NPR, college, and Americana radio stations.

Thompson Ward are currently planning on a U.S. tour in 2011, including a few regional dates sponsored by Delta Distributing Co., an affiliate of Budweiser.
