About Todd Snider

Todd Snider is perhaps the quintessential postmodern troubadour, toiling away on the folk and Americana circuits year after year, never gaining a hit yet always growing his audience. For a while, it seemed as though he could ride the post-Nirvana alt-rock wave, but his 1994 debut Songs for the Daily Planet peaked at number 23 on Billboard's Heatseeker chart, with its accompanying single "Talkin' Seattle Grunge Rock Blues" not managing to be a novelty fluke. While that very title hints at the humor that distinguishes Snider's catalog, his lively, witty songs also dig emotionally deeper. Sometimes he crested into the charts, but he always maintained an audience devoted to his wry quips and heart-rending ballads, qualities captured on such albums as 2019's Cash Cabin Sessions, Vol. 3 and 2021's First Agnostic Church of Hope and Wonder. 2022 saw the release of the concert LP Live: Return of the Storyteller.
