Artist Biography

Name: Todd Snider
Born: October 11, 1966 (Age: 45 years old)
Origin: Portland, Oregon, United States
Genres: Americana, Alt-country, Folk-rock
Occupations: Singer, songwriter
Year’s active: 1994–present
Labels: Aimless Records
Website: www.toddsnider.net
Nationality: American

Singer-songwriter Todd Snider was born October 11, 1966, in Portland, Ore., and lived there until his family moved to Houston. When he was 15, he ran away from home with a friend and went back to Portland. After high school, he moved to Santa Rosa, Calif., to be a harmonica player. Then his brother, who lived in Austin, Texas, bought him a ticket to move there. After seeing Jerry Jeff Walker in a local bar, Snider decided that he didn’t need a band to be a musician.

Career: Snider’s 1994 debut album on MCA, entitled Songs for the Daily Planet, was named for the bar where Snider used to play regularly in Memphis. On that album were the minor hits “Talkin’ Seattle Grunge Rock Blues”—a folk song about the early ’90’s grunge scene, featuring a band that “refused to play” —and “Alright Guy,” which later became the title cut of Gary Allan’s 2001 album. He released two more albums for MCA, Step Right Up and Viva Satellite before moving to John Prine’s Oh Boy Records where he made Happy to Be Here, New Connection, Near Truths and Hotel Rooms, East Nashville Skyline, and Peace Love and Anarchy. That Was Me: The Best of Todd Snider 1994–1998 was released on the Hip-O Records label in August 2005. Snider’s next studio album, The Devil You Know, was released in August 2006. It marked his return to a major label, New Door Records, a subsidiary of Universal Records. The Devil You Know was named to several critics’ year-end “best” lists, including a #33 ranking in Rolling Stone magazine’s top 50 albums of the year, a #25 ranking by No Depression magazine, and #14 by Blender magazine. Snider’s album, Peace Queer, was released on October 14, 2008 and reached #1 on the Americana Airplay Chart on October 27, 2008. His album, The Excitement Plan, was released on June 9, 2009 on the YepRoc Label and was produced by Don Was. Snider contributed a cover version of A Boy Named Sue to the 2010 Sugar Hill Records album Twistable Turnable Man, a tribute by various artists to songwriter Shel Silver-stein. Snider’s songs “Late Last Night” and “I Believe You” have been recorded by the Oklahoma red dirt band Cross Canadian Ragweed. He co-wrote the song “Barbie Doll” with country star Jack Ingram. In February 2011 Todd Snider released a double disc live album called “The Storyteller” on his own record label Aimless Records. The album features live versions of songs spanning much of Snider’s career along with some of the stories that have become a staple of his live show.

IDINA MENZEL, attaining a new level of artistic freedom required a little help from a two-year-old. The beloved Broadway star, best known for her work in Rent, her Tony Award-winning performance as Elphaba, the green-faced Wicked Witch of the West, in Wicked and her recurring role in the hit TV series Glee, has spent much of the past two years crisscrossing the country, headlining sold out shows. Each concert would find Menzel elegantly gowned, with towering heels to match. “Then one day I got smart,” she confides with a smile. “I’d been carrying my son around all day, and the next morning I could barely move. So, I thought, ‘well, if I’m going to perform tonight, I’ll have to be barefoot,’ and it turned out to be the best show I’d done, because I felt so free. When you’re singing songs like ‘Defying Gravity’ you can get swept away, but my bare feet make me feel more grounded.” From that night forward, Menzel has remained adamantly shoeless onstage. Which explains the title, Idina Menzel Live: Barefoot at the Symphony, of her forthcoming PBS special and the accompanying album and DVD, due March 06 from Concord Records.
