Singer/songwriter Todd Snider first garnered attention for his timely alt-rock satire “Talkin’ Seattle Grunge Rock Blues”. In the mid-80s and after establishing residency at a local club in Memphis, Snider was discovered by singer/songwriter Keith Sykes, a member of Jimmy Buffett’s Coral Reefer Band. After Sykes passed on demo tapes of Snider to Buffett, he was signed to the star’s Margaritaville Records. Snider’s debut album, Songs for the Daily Planet was released in the fall of 1994 and on his second effort, 1996’s Step Right Up, Snider and his band continued blending bluegrass, blues, folk-rock and country-rock to forge their own distinctive sound. On his third album, 1998’s Viva Satellite, Snider took a Tom Petty approach, replacing much of his acoustic setup with twang-drenched electric guitar. In 2000, he signed to John Prine’s Oh Boy label and returned to his singer/songwriter roots with Happy to Be Here followed by New Connection, Near Truths and Hotel Rooms Live, and East Nashville Skyline. In March 2012, Todd Snider released the album Agnostic Hymns & Stoner Fables which debuted in the Top 20 of four separate Billboard charts. 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.” In April 2012, Todd Snider released Time As We Know It: The Songs of Jerry Jeff Walker, a tribute to his original musical hero.
