And here’s how I discovered the music of Todd Alsup. In the summer of 2009 I was visiting the site of an artist friend of mine, Josh Duffy, as he was performing at a GLBT Expo in NYC, and I went to that event site next, and there was a poster for the Expo on the main page. It included a cute young artist I was not familiar with, so I checked him out, and was glad I did. I contacted him immediately and he sent me his new EP, “Facts & Figures,” and a couple demo CDs of new songs. I played him on my radio show the first chance I had, and one of those demos was the song “How I’m Made.”
Well, that song is now on his brand new full-length album, just called “Todd Alsup,” and I’m delighted by the entire CD. I loves me some piano-driven music, so this was right down my street, blending pop, rock and a dash of soul. It’s a digital only release, drat, as I like to hold things in my hands. One of the songs, “The Only Thing,” has a remix single available, if you’re into that…hey, whatever finds an audience. Tough to pick just one track to give you, so I picked the opener.
And there are a number of live videos to be found by Todd on YouTube, like the one below, at my favorite NYC venue, Rockwood Music Hall.
