Todd Snider

INTERVIEW: Listen to our blogger, Emily Edelman, chat with Todd Snider!

Called “America’s sharpest musical storyteller” by Rolling Stone, folk singer-songwriter artist Todd Snider has mastered the balancing act of blending his influences with a personal flair to create a unique, alluring blend of Americana storytelling and heartbreak. Country music legend Kris Kristofferson describes Snider as having “the heart and humor of John Prine, the wild unpredictability of Roger Miller, and a fresh, original spirit and freedom of imagination that’s absolutely his own.”

Snider got his start after being discovered and polished by former Jimmy Buffett band member Keith Sykes and went on to sign with the legend’s Margaritaville Records. It was here that his debut album, Songs for the Daily Planet, was released in 1994 with his attention grabbing single “Talkin’ Seattle Grunge Rock Blues.” It was this track that proved Snider’s unique talent for appealing to a broad audience from rebellious young people to the aging rebels of the 1960s kick off of rock and roll.

Snider’s latest album is Agnostic Hymns & Stoner Fables. The album debuted in the Top 20 of four separate Billboard charts, including the Indie Label Chart, the Folk Chart, the Internet Chart, and the Independent Core Store Report. The New York Times hailed it as "among his best" and Rolling Stone called it "the sharpest musical response yet to the excesses of the one percent."

Artist Bio

todd snider

by todd snider

i started making up songs in 1986.

i made an album in 1994.

i also started a tour in 1994

and that tour is, in a way, still going.

i never made a record so good

that i could just sit home

or did a show so bad

that i had to.

and man, i’ve done some shit shows,

shit albums too.

some of them are pretty good though,

but you know,

it’s been a while.

i really need to put out a good album soon

or i'm finished. 

sometimes these days i sing with a band.

i think we made a good album.

david schools of widespread panic is our leader.

i make up our lyrics....we’re a jam band.

our songs only go on about an hour or so but they’re still pretty long.

cool people jam with us all the time and we have like a million shirts and shit.

i personally think we’re the seventh best band in the whole jam thing.

on this tour i am coming to town with nothing but my guitar and stories

like the old days.

you know...

pick a little

talk a little

pick a little 

talk a little

cheap cheap cheap

talk a lot

pick a little more. 

and not to brag,

but i also wrote a book that everybody loves

so i am an author now.

plus i play everywhere,

pretty much all the time

everybody shows up

and they pretty much always love it.
