Music from the Couch - Let's bring it back! 

Happy 2021 everybody! I know it's March already, well, April if you really think about it. I've been contemplating 2021 and have decided to bring back 'Songs from the Couch', the HIGHLY successful music series I did when the pandemic hit where you all helped me raise a ton of money to donate to charity. 

As we roll into 2021 - I want to keep doing this and I want others to join me and I want us ALL to have a good time, so without further ado, I announce - 

MUSIC FROM THE COUCH!  - Shows, interviews, artists spotlights, and maybe MAYBE a podcast.... 

Starting March 31st I'll be doing some weekly shows, interviewing local (and hopefully national) artists, and even some music fanatics that I respect and enjoy chatting with. Keep checking back here for details and a schedule. I'm excited to jump into 2021 (3 months late) and continue being a part of what I love: music. I hope you'll join me

Songs from the Couch - Midwest Country Music Association Showcase | New Event 

Starting April 2nd, I will be hosting a weekly (and maybe more often) show on Instagram Live where I will interview 2 local artists and those artists will play a song or two. This event is in partnership with the Midwest Country Music Association and I am beyond excited to get this started. Tune in this week with my guests Dayne Koehn & Jason Paulson. 

'Songs from the Couch' Series beginning March 18, 2020 

Beginning March 18th 2020, I will be setting up 2-3 shows a week on Stage It to raise money for those impacted by COVID-19. You can learn more and buy tickets by going to 

Each show will start at 8PM CST and will be 30 minutes long. The goal is to not play the same song twice in the same week, sing some new songs, some unreleased songs, and songs written by others, while talking about the story behind the song. Every song has a story behind it, even if you didn't write it. 

I hope you'll join me. The ticket cost is a $10 suggested price, so this could be a free show for you. Tips can be made as well before, during, or after the show. I look forward to seeing you in the virtual world. 

Cheers - Todd


NEW MUSIC: "Made Me A Man" Available Now! 

Todd's latest single, 'Made Me A Man' is available now on iTunes and Spotify. Check it out now and share with your friends! While you're at it, make sure you take a listen to Todd's other July singles, 'Because of You' and 'If You're Not In It'. 

"'Made Me A Man' is a pretty meaningful song to me. I started writing it about my oldest daughter, which then turned into a song about 3 events in my life that shaped who I am today. The 1st verse is about the death of my grandfather. The 2nd verse is about the day my father, who is a police officer, was shot in the line of duty and the months of repair that came after. The 3rd verse is about the birth of my oldest daughter, also the original 1st verse. The album art to me, is the shining moment of this song. I was at home in Indiana looking through photos and found the picture that is now the cover art.

The story behind it: It's a picture of my mom, taken by her friend, during the 1st date between her and my dad. She's sitting shotgun in his mustang. I started to write a song to go with the photo and then realized the photo would be the 4th important life event that made me a man, my mother and her raising me. 

While this song is very specific, I feel like anyone can relate to it. We all have those moments in our lives. I hope you agree and can relate to 'Made Me A Man'. I still get emotional every time I sing this song and always will. Cheers! Thank you and enjoy." - Todd
