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, 1997's "Favorite Waste of Time"
(produced by Bostonian musician Kevin Salem) and 1999's "Little Mystery" (Co-produced with Jim Scott). In addition to various live recordings and DVD's he's since released three more studio recordings, 2002's "Squash", 2005's "Northern Skies" (Both produced by Adam Steinberg- Patty Griffin, Dixie Chicks) and his most recent effort "Broken" released in 2009. He tours throughout Europe regularly in both full band and acoustic formats and performs regionally at home in the U.S.
Like Neil Young and Alejandro Escovedo, Glenn Yoder and The Western States glide between guitar-driven rock and folk-tinged acoustic balladry. Infusing the Texas songwriter tradition with jangly pop (think Wilco and the Jayhawks), other songs beckon to a darker place: swampy blues a la Ray Wylie Hubbard and Morphine.
