Todd Thibaud and Brad Byrd

Thursday, August 24th, 2017

Todd Thibaud

“New England’s best and most underrated singer-songwriter”- The Boston Globe“

...a terrific, endlessly listenable album that in a perfect world - or evenan imperfect one - deserves to make Thibaud a star.”- The Boston Herald

Todd Thibaud is a Vermont born, Boston based Singer-Songwriter who’s songs are a slice of what life is really like...the pains and pleasures, love lost and life reborn. Using songwriters like Elvis Costello, Neil Finn, Johnny Cash and John Hiatt for inspiration, Thibaud has built a sound that is entirely his own. His music is meshed with elements of Americana, Folk, Country and Roots Pop Rock, making it seem at once familiar and new. After fronting his band, “Courage Brothers” and releasing two independent records in the early ‘90’s (Something Strong & Wood), Thibaud went solo and recorded two critically lauded albums for Doolittle Records (now New West Records), 1997's “Favorite Waste of Time” (produced by Bostonian musician Kevin Salem) and 1999's “Little Mystery” (Co-produced with Jim Scott:Wilco, Crowded House, Kathleen Edwards). In addition to various live recordings and DVD’s he’s since released several additional studio recordings, including 2002’s “Squash”, 2005’s “Northern Skies” (Both produced by Adam Steinberg- Patty Griffin, Dixie Chicks) and 2009’s “Broken”.You’ve probably heard Todd even if you haven’t listened to one of his albums or attended his buoyant, high-energy shows. His songs are regularly featured on TV, where ESPN especially has taken Todd’s straight and true art to heart, and most recently on episodes of NCIS and Justified. His work has also appeared in films, such as John Favreau’s Love & Sex. Plus, the Boston-area singer and picker has been played on Americana radio since the early ‘90s. Thibaud released his most recent album “Waterfall” in 2013. Is currently working on a new project, Water and Sand, with fellow singer/songwriter, Kim Taylor - album to be released spring of 2016. He tours throughout Europe regularly in both full band and acoustic formats and performs regionally at home in the U.S.

Brad Byrd

LA based indie-rock/alt-country singer/songwriter Brad Byrd is back with his first full length LP in almost 6 years. 10 tracks that tell a story about leaving Los Angeles and heading out in the wilderness to tour and rediscover himself as not only an artist but a person. The record talks about moving home to be with his sick mother, his own battle with drug and alcohol addiction, and finding his voice and sound by reconnecting with his roots. For fans of Wilco, Joseph Arthur, Kurt Vile, Nada Surf, Pete Yorn, and Ryan Adams this record will not disappoint.

Byrd’s catalog has been featured (most recently) on ABC’s “American Housewife”, “Happy Endings”, FOX’s “New Girl” and “Ben & Kate”, amongst dozens of other film/tv placements throughout the years. His songs have charted on major radio stations and he has consistently toured the country developing a small but loyal following sharing the stage with fellow alt rockers such as Jay Farrar (Son Volt), Mike Doughty, Family of the Year, and Willy Mason to name a few.

Please check out his first single and title track “Highest Mountain”, and hopefully we’ll see you on the road this summer.
