Happy New Year! Let's start 2019 off with new music... 

Happy new year everyone, I hope you had an amazing 2018. 2018 was a great year for me, full of friends, family, fans, shows, and new music, which I want to share with you. 

Last week we grabbed some video of 2 new songs that you will have access to in 2019 and I just couldn't wait to share them with you now. So head over to the THTV page and check out Johnny & June (a love song) and Because of You (not so much of a love song). While you're at it, check out the other videos and be sure to check out my YouTube channel and subscribe so you can be notified as new videos are added.  

Enjoy!

Update from the Studio 

 

Happy Holidays all! I hope every is enjoying the final days of 2018. It's been another year for the books. I've been laying low lately and working on some writing and preparing for 2019 and on. Part of that preparation is more music for you, because you deserve it! 

I spent this past weekend at Drum Farm Studios in Menonomie, WI (did I spell that right?) with John Richardson and we finished vocals on two songs and started work on a 3rd song. I can't wait to share this music with you. I wish I could now and just might. You can head to my social media pages to catch a snippet of a new song called "Johnny & June". A little cliche but a personal song for me. I think you'll like it. 

Anyways, take care, have a great holiday, and I look forward to seeing you out in 2019. Schedule is being updated as I type this.

Todd heads back into studio - 3 new songs expected in 2018 

In February, I headed back to Drum Farm Studios in Wisconsin to start working on new music. The songs are songs I have been playing for awhile now and being able to build the songs and bring new life to them has been awesome. The latest day in the studio was spent with John Richardson, Matt Kirkwold, and you friend and mine, Benji Conklin. 

Next steps is to finish my song "Made Me A Man" and then re-release the 'Doin' All the Wrong Things Right' EP with Made Me A Man as an additional track. The EP will also be available on all streaming outlets (Spotify, Apple Music, Pandora). 

I look forward to getting this new music into your hands and I hope you enjoy listening to it, as much as I enjoyed creating it.

Welcome to 2018 

2018 is already here. It's crazy to think of what all happened in 2017 personally and musically. Life takes control sometimes and that's what happened in 2017. New music was put on the back burner so I could get through some personal changes, getting out to some of my favorite bars and towns was also scaled back from the same reason. On top of that, my music tastes took a big hit. Some fantastic music was put out in 2017 that blew my mind away, such as Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit's album 'The Nashville Sound" or Will Hoge's "Anchors". I was also reminded of artists that I've listened to for years, just how amazing they are and how much their music means to me such as Sunny Sweeney, Pokey LaFarge, Butch Walker, Eric Church, Dierks Bentley, Brooks & Dunn, hell, 90's country in general, Hank Williams, and, most importantly to me, American Aquarium, led by BJ Barham. BJ Barham's solo album "Rockingham" might have single handily saved my life and seeing him play a solo show in Minneapolis in the summer of 2017 made me realize songwriting is a soul cleanser. 

I spent a lot of 2017 not even looking at a guitar and loathing playing music for you, my fans. Of course, every time I hit the first chord the love would immediately come back for a few hours, but then it was back into a hole. All of that came to a head in October when I had unexpected back surgery and I just gave up. I wasn't myself after. 

Now that I brought the party down, let me try and bring it back up. 2018 is the year of new music, new singles, more shows and in more places. The goal is to hear more from me and it starts now. I plan on releasing a new song "Made Me A Man" digitally and it will be available for purchase or streaming. Each month, I plan on posting videos or demo's of songs I wrote in 2017 and as we move into 2018. And the last part of a new year is that I will be coming to cities all over the midwest. I've already started booking some shows back in my hometown in Indiana and look forward to getting out and meeting a lot of you who I've only interacted with online. It's going to be a great year, a promising year, and most importantly, the best year. 

See you soon!
