"It's A Great CD..."

Todd,
It's a great cd and our listeners appear to be
enjoying the tracks we have played. We will be doing
a cd review in the near future.
Thanks

"I really like this song..."

I really like this song ("Get Back On That Train, Marie") ... the harmonica it great! Unfortunately I wasn't able to use if on the Expo CD this time around. It's such a trick trying to get the sequence just right. That said, I have a pretty quick deadline for bands to get their materials in, so if I don't hear back from someone I will try to slip this song in it's place.

In any event, I'd like to use this in an upcoming podcast. I'll let you know when.

""Songs from Prospect Mountain" CD Review"

CD Review: Todd McKinney, Songs from Prospect Mountain

Todd McKinney's cd will grab you right from the start with the lead track "Hey Lucinda", then bring you into thinking what it’s really about with "This Wintered Heart". This is an acoustic journey taking you from creative stylings to Celtic and Dylan-esque performances. The well produced disc is lyrically strong, complete with great melodic hooks and a performance that is more than convincing. "Songs from Prospect Mountain" encompasses a journey from 2001 to 2006 and is a wonderful collection of songs brought to you by an acoustic mastermind. Todd has scored big with us on this "larger than Prospect Mountain" cd and our listeners will enjoy his songs on our broadcasts for a very long time.

Bio

SONGWRITER for TOM RUSH, JONATHAN EDWARDS...
1st Honorable Mention March/April '07 American Songwriter Magazine, Best New Bands comp cd from Apache Rose, good internet radio play on several stations.
Todd began his music career in high school playing standup bass in a folk trio with his brothers Malcolm and Fred. In college he formed an electric band with Malcolm, Jonathan Edwards, Joe Dolce of “Shaddap You Face” fame and others. His songs have been recorded by Tom Rush and Edwards and produced by Martin Mull. Rush issued Todd’s song “Anna” as the first cut on his “Live At Symphony Hall” album. The concert from which Rush’s recording was made has been aired across the US and Europe. The song was also featured in an interview with Rush on ABC’s “Entertainment Tonight.”

Todd has appeared on bills with Tom Paxton, James and Livingston Taylor, Don McLean, Bill Monroe, B.B. King and many others.

His current recordings are self-produced, featuring his vocals and playing on acoustic guitar, electric guitar and bass, harmonica, keyboards, and drum and percussion sequencing.

Todd’s melodies are at once accessible, yet, strikingly original. His lyrics are penetrating and poetic. In performance he is able to connect with audiences on a very personal level.

His music is magical.
