Troubadour, meaning an itinerant singer of songs, and comes from the French verb “trouver.” These musical wanderers would find and invent stories humorous and intellectual, romantic and earthy, performing them as they went from town to town. Troubadour is also the word that acclaimed musician - raconteur Todd Snider leans on to describe himself and his latest release, Live: Return of the Storyteller.
“I think my first thought with this record was I wanted to remind people really quickly that I'm a troubadour,” says Snider. “Playing live is the only chance for me to show, 'This is what I really do.' I've never thought of myself as a recording artist. I'm someone who gets over by traveling around, telling stories, making up new songs and singing them alone on stage.” Before he even made his professional debut with Songs For The Daily Planet in 1994, Snider already knew that he wanted to be part of this time - honored tradition.
The timing of Live: Return Of The Storyteller's release has extra resonance in our post - pandemic era. While the album captures what Snider laughingly calls his “second tour - because I went out on the road in '94 and never went home until the pandemic” - it acts as both a summing up of a thirty - year career and a look ahead. “I always think that being a recording artist isn't something that I've thrived at,” he says. “I have fun with it and try all different kinds of music and try to learn more and more, but the only reason I get to do it is because of the main thing I do - which is travel around by myself and sing and tell stories. That thing works. Since I was twenty, that thing has worked. People come to see me do it and I love to do it.”
Mixing salt-of-the-earth songwriting with a graceful splash of old-world sophistication, Americana songstress Lilly Winwood reached a long-sought milestone with her 2021 album debut, 'Time Well Spent.' Daughter of Grammy winning British rocker Steve Winwood (Traffic, Spencer Davis Group), Lilly grew up splitting time between the U.K. and Nashville’s neon-lit streets.
