His new record also features some of the Hudson Valley's finest musicians, who each add their own flavor to the richness of the work. Todd's masterful picking combined with edgy, yet sincere lyrics take the listener along on a journey; making Compass a soul searching adventure you shouldn’t miss out on. Compass is available on iTunes, Amazon, and CDBaby.
Todd's Morning Jam has been waking up fans around the world every Thursday morning for over three years now. In each jam Todd showcases his six string prowess and genre versatility by sharing a new, exhilarating original guitar instrumental video to his social media pages. He plays each instrument, mixes the new piece, and then films a single play-through guitar performance at his home studio in upstate New York weekly. Todd begins each jam with his trademark coffee mug toast before riffing over a track he's created earlier that week. Excitement builds as fans wonder week to week what kind of mug will be used, then try to catch whether or not one of Todd’s cats (Stevie Ray or Nala) can be seen running through a video. Todd's Morning Jam is released weekly without fail, and continues to grow in popularity.
Over thirty years of performing has seen Todd share the stage with the likes of Motley Crue, Blackberry Smoke, Ronnie Montrose, Jerrod Neiman, & David Nail. Todd performs with his own band around the tri-state area and occasionally sits in as lead guitarist with Woodstock legends Professor Louie & The Crowmatix. When Todd isn’t writing, performing, or recording music, you can find him teaching guitar at one of the largest music retailers on the east coast Alto Music, which he has done for over 20 years.
Todd's new record Compass features a host of veteran players including drummer Brian Doherty (They Might Be Giants), guitarist John Platania (Van Morrison, Crowmatix), bassist John Regan (Peter Frampton, Ace Frehley, Four By Fate), bassist Richie Goods (Chris Botti, Nuclear Fusion), bassist Mike Hamel (Mike Hamel Band), keyboardist John Goodwin (Hard Promises) & bassist Mike McFarlin (Todd's former World On Fire bandmate). In addition to writing each song on Compass, singing the vocals and playing guitar - on two of the tracks Todd also performed the bass and drums himself. Almost the entire record was engineered at his own studio in the Hudson Valley. The album was mixed by Milt Costakis at 3 Bays Studio and John Naclerio at Nada Studio, and mastered by Mike Kalajian at Rogue Planet Mastering.
