Todd Snider

Singer/songwriter Todd Snider first garnered attention for his timely alt-rock satire "Talkin' Seattle Grunge Rock Blues," a folk-rock song that struck a chord with younger people fed up with angry alternative rock bands, and at the same time, appealed to aging rockers who grew up with the folk revival of the 1960s. Snider was born in Portland, Oregon, and grew up in Santa Rosa, Austin, Houston, and Atlanta. After moving to Memphis in the mid-'80s and establishing residency at a local club named the Daily Planet, he was discovered by singer/songwriter Keith Sykes, a member of Jimmy Buffett's Coral Reefer Band. Sykes began to work with Snider to help advance his career, and after passing on demo tapes of Snider to Buffett, he was signed to the star's Margaritaville Records. Snider's debut album, Songs for the Daily Planet was released in the fall of 1994; "Talkin' Seattle Grunge Rock Blues" was added to the album as an afterthought only after intense lobbying by a Canadian music critic, and ultimately became a minor hit.

On his second effort, 1996's Step Right Up, Snider and his band, the Nervous Wrecks (comprised of lead guitarist and multi-instrumentalist Will Kimbrough, bassist Joe Mariencheck, drummer Joe McLeary, and keyboardist David Zollo), continued blending bluegrass, blues, folk-rock, and country-rock to forge their own distinctive sound. On his third album, 1998's Viva Satellite, Snider took a Tom Petty approach, replacing much of his acoustic setup with twang-drenched electric guitar. In 2000, he signed to John Prine's Oh Boy label and returned to his singer/songwriter roots with Happy to Be Here. He recorded three more records for the label, 2002's New Connection, 2003's Near Truths and Hotel Rooms Live, and 2004's East Nashville Skyline. That Was Me: The Best of Todd Snider 1994-1998 was released on Hip-O in 2005, and the next year Snider's eighth album, Devil You Know, came out. In 2008 Snider released the politically charged Peace Queer, an eight-song collection of antiwar songs as filtered through Snider's signature wit and amiable pathos. The Excitement Plan appeared from Yep Roc Records in 2009. In 2011, he released the two-disc concert set Live: The Storyteller, while 2012 saw both a traditional studio outing, Agnostic Hymns & Stoner Fables, plus a tribute album, Time as We Know It: The Songs of Jerry Jeff Walker. ~ Richard Skelly

Todd Snyder is a smart-a**. I mean that in a good way. I think of him as our musical Mark Twain of the last decade.

Buy the live album you won't be disappointed . See him live if you can. Saw him open for John Prime in Pittsburgh. Hooked ever since.

His own original music is great, he says things we want but can't get it out. And then he plays covers by some of the different but all time greats: Jerry Jeff Walker and Jerry Garcia...hmm m m wonder if he's also a fan of Jerry VanDyke...

If you've never seen Todd live, do it now. His shows are one of a kind, and I personally guarantee you will be thoroughly entertained the entire time. One of the best musicians out there today. I had the privelage of seeing him with Robert Earl Keen and Bruce Robison a couple years ago. Best concert I''ve ever been to.

First time hearing Todd Snider, man I sure have missed a lot of good listening. Drat that TV. First wish--- I gonna catch him in concert someday.

I lost track of how many times I've seen him live now. Every show kicks a** and I'll continue to see him every chance I get. Once you see him once you will feel the same way. Got to hang out with him for a bit after a show, just an all around cool guy.
