Stephen Todd

Best Lyricist in the South!

I love the outdoors, especially white water canoe camping!





What is music to you? What does it give you?

Music is my outlet and inspiration. I really enjoy upbeat and uptempo type songs! The ones that have a positive message.

What is your music dream?

Is to complete my EP within 12 months.

If you could change the world - what would you start with?

I'd start with myself and my guitar. If I'm going to change something, it has to start with me. I try to be the best person I can possibly be every day.

Which is the most memorable song from your childhood?

More Than a Feeling by Boston.

Who are your favorite musical artists or bands?

Queen, Boston, Steve Miller Band, and Journey to name a few.

What inspires you to make music?

I have to feel passionate about the subject. I always write about what inspires me like God, Family, and Country.

What is the message you want to send with your music?

To me music is entertaining. If I can't entertain people, then why do it. So, I always write with this in mind.

How do you feel when you perform in front of an audience?

I feel nervous. I want to perform to the best of my ability. If I'm not a little nervous then I'm not human.

How do you see the musicians’ reality nowadays? What could be improved?

I think musicians have a lot more at their disposal, but the market is more competitive, too. The music business is just like every other business. It's all based on "who you know" and that an be very difficult if your just getting started.

What do you think of Drooble?

I love it. I hope to continue writing lots of great music and get feedback from my friends on Drooble. Very positive and uplifting.

What frustrates you most as a musician?

The way the music business is set up. Again, it's all on "who you know". And, I don't know a lot of people in this business. So, that's a downer for me, but I don't let it get me down.

Do you support your local scene as a fan? How?

Absolutely! I try to pick local bands and attend concerts.

What qualities should a musician nowadays have in order to get their music heard by a larger audience?

It's all about the lyrics and songwriting. It all starts there. The arrangement and quality of the band is important as well.

Share some awesome artists that we’ve never heard of.

I really like Drivin 'n Cryin. Also, Lindsey Stirling is one of my favorites.
