Todd Nelson's TN3

Todd Nelson's TN3


The music of TN3 is a unique fusion: Original songs that are improvisational; exploratory in texture and sound but melodic; arranged but open-ended; structured while embracing the random; aware of the past without repeating it; unafraid of space, subtlety or beauty, and it rocks!


Todd Nelson is a guitarist who has recorded or performed with Terry Adams (NRBQ), Gary Burke (Dylan Joe Jackson), Hayseed, Aimee Mann, Ed Mann (Frank Zappa), Rumdummies, Pal Shazar, Jules Shear, The Wheelers and Dealers and others.
