About Todd Snider
Todd Snider is perhaps the quintessential post-modern troubadour, toiling away on the folk and Americana circuits year after year, never gaining a hit but always growing his audience. For a while, it seemed as though Snider 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. That very title hints at the humor that distinguishes Snider's catalog, but his lively, witty songs also dig emotionally deeper, which is why he has sustained a career for decades after that 1994 debut. 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.
