Aaron Thompson captivates his audience with heartfelt praise and a contagious spirit! Recently moving from Gilbert, Arizona to Madison, Wisconsin, Aaron's continuing his over 20 year career in music ministry as the Director of Music Ministry at St. Thomas Aquinas parish. Relocating Marian, his wife of 17 years, and his 4 children to the frigid Wisconsin climate has been an opportunity for growth, and a new endeavor for Aaron professionally. As amiable as he is spiritual, Aaron's ability to pour his soul into his music connects with an expansive audience of all ages. Aaron studied trumpet performance in college, and has since harnessed his skills on the piano, guitar, and as a vocalist. His 5 albums have had considerable success, and he thoroughly enjoys any opportunity to perform.

Touring worldwide professionally has been an envisioned dream attained, and he is eager to continue his passion for praise in the Madison community. A devout Catholic, Christian, and self-proclaimed family man, Aaron Thompson proves to be an inspiration to those around him. Expressing his spirituality through song, his music reflects an earnest desire for worship, a passion for the church, and a heart for ministry.
