'Sweet Cynthia' & the Nashville Music Co.
NOTES- This record is a collection of songs and sounds from days and nights and Nashville mornings and afternoons, tunes written at 10am on Monday to things heard in the middle of the night in every frame of mind all documented, framed and prettied up in the art form of sounds. BIO by Rusty Cable- What to about say about Todd... The first time I met Todd I really didn't know what to think. I interviewed him on my downtown Nashville Radio show. There was a buzz around Nashville's underground scene, so I had heard his name but hadn't had the oportunity to hear the music. Right off the bat the first thing you notice about Todd is the wheelchair, but after talking to him for just a few minutes it seemed like it disappeared, just because it seemed he himself doesn't notice it......(got to be some kind of ancient philosophy in that). So I'll try to sum up his history and the music since he asked me to write this bio..guess you gotta have that..right?...so here ya go. A North Carolina boy with a little mix of Cherokee Indian, which he'll tell you with pride (if not to brag) and then tell you that Hendrix was half Cherokee himself. The music...well the style of music seems to be an original creation which today is an extremely difficult or slightly impossible thing....seems like most musicians I run into, consciously take styles and say hey why don't we mix these together and see what happens and label it 'original'..that is all cool and it is great everyone is experimenting, but with Todd it seems like something that was unintentional...just something that came natural. Not that you can't hear the influences...bluegrass...folk...rock...and artists like Dylan, Ben Harper, Zeppelin,John Prine, Ry Cooder and all those old great blues guys. The hot rod slide guitar playing is cool..but don't miss the lyrical content. Some of Todd's line will knock you out of your seat. It is easy to hear the dedication that he puts into the songwriting. Then there is the personality.....catch him on a good night and you might be laughing as much as you are enjoying the tunes. Well that's my bio......check him out....I advise it, -Rusty Cable.
