About John Thomson

John J. Thompson, creator and host of the award-winning True Tunes Podcast, has been championing, challenging, and celebrating faith-fueled art and artists since he was just a kid. He is a speaker, author, pastor, producer, artist, and music enthusiast and served as the Associate Dean of the Trevecca School of Music and Worship Arts and as a Creative Consultant, Writer, Music Supervisor, and Producer for various publishing companies, independent artists, films, websites, and more. He served Capitol CMG Publishing as Director of Creative and Copyright Development for nearly a decade before joining Trevecca, and before that was on staff at the Cornerstone Festival in Illinois. He appears in the Lionsgate / Kingdom Story film The Jesus Music as an authoritative historian on the ins and outs of Christian and Gospel music and acted as Music Supervisor and Historical Consultant for the music comedy film Electric Jesus, (1091 Pictures / MPX.) He is currently serving as an Artist In Residence / Adjunct Professor of Music Industry Studies at Lipscomb University. Thompson recently re-launched TrueTunes.com, the brand he originally launched as a teen in the late 80s, as a website and podcast. “This time around,” he explains, “True Tunes is about equipping and inspiring artists and creatives to function in any space, as much as it is about curating interesting, spiritually relevant music for a thoughtful audience. We want to listen to better music, and listen to music better, and we do that through music reviews, interviews, and playlisting, as well as helping songwriters and artists to find their voice in today’s context.” His second book, Jesus, Bread, and Chocolate: Crafting a Handmade Faith in a Mass-Market World, was published in 2015 by Zondervan / Harper Collins and he has a new novel scheduled to release in 2022.
