Red Street Records artist Cade Thompson is an energetic and soulful contemporary Christian music artist with a sound that appeals to believers and mainstream pop audiences alike. His effortless style promotes his personal musical influences, which draw heavily from the church. Cade has an admirable ability to transform his thoughts and faith into a powerful collection of melodies and lyrics that inspire people of all ages to step into all that God has for them.
Thompson has had an affinity with music since his toddler days when even a preschool teacher noticed him frequently harmonizing early on, and eventually progressed through piano, guitar, and drum lessons. After joining the youth worship team in 6th grade, a music mentor came into his life who emphasized the importance of seeking God through the Bible outside of a worship setting. This understanding placed Thompson on a deeper course of encountering the love of the Father and seeking His presence more intently. In these early teen years, he knew God was calling him into music ministry and giving him opportunities to grow in that calling.
God has continued to reveal Thompson’s heart, the outpouring has resulted in a strong connection to his generation sonically and lyrically. Shortly after finishing high school, he moved to Nashville, Tennessee. Following his move, he signed a record deal with Red Street Records, an independent Christian label founded by Rascal Flatts member, Jay DeMarcus. In February of 2020, Thompson made waves across the Christian music community with the release of his debut single, “Provider.” In August of 2020, he earned his first Top 20 Billboard charting single, with the release of his second radio single, “Every Step of the Way.” He has shared the stage with artists such as Michael W. Smith, TobyMac, Newsboys, Crowder, We The Kingdom, among many others, and has also seen huge success online, where his music has earned over thirty-five million streams to date.
Thompson hit the ground running in 2021 with a lineup of shows across the nation opening for some of CCM’s biggest names. Thompson’s debut album, Bigger Story, was released in September 2021. On June 17, 2022, he releases his first single "Arms of Jesus" off of his next project expected in 2023.
