TODD THIBAUD

He's one the most, if not the most gifted songwriter to come out of New England in decades. Todd Thibaud's songs are snapshots of the everyday, they are the GPS that navigates us through the turmoil of the human condition. No matter what your current emotion is, there's a line written in one of his songs that that offer a perspective you may not have seen. Life is a highway full of twists and turns, and stops and starts and Todd Thibaud's catalog of work may simply be  a book of road maps that guide the listener through the inevitable curves. Whatever you need or want is captured within the lines of his vast body of work if you let yourself listen. If an emotion needs to be expressed Todd Thibaud has found  a way to express it.

A couple older and a couple newer songs here. 'Waterfall' and 'Find Your Love' are unrecorded songs that are slated to appear on the next Todd Thibaud album that he's set to begin recording later in 2018. Classic love songs that remind you to lay your burdens, fears and uncertainty at the feet of love and, like most of his writing, give a breath of hope to a situation in despair. 'You and Me' and 'Lost Again' are classics from the archives. The band assembled for this session is a group of players that have been with Todd Thibaud for years. They get the songs, the emotion, the conversation and serve these songs brilliantly.
