todd snider by todd snider i started making up songs in 1986. i made an album in 1994. i also started a tour in 1994 and that tour is, in a way, still going. i never made a record so good that i could just sit home or did a show so bad that i had to. and man, i’ve done some s**t shows, s**t albums too. some of them are pretty good though, but you know, it’s been a while. i really need to put out a good album soon or i'm finished. sometimes these days i sing with a band. i think we made a good album. david schools of widespread panic is our leader. i make up our lyrics....we’re a jam band. our songs only go on about an hour or so but they’re still pretty long. cool people jam with us all the time and we have like a million shirts and s**t. i personally think we’re the seventh best band in the whole jam thing. on this tour i am coming to town with nothing but my guitar and stories like the old days. you know... pick a little talk a little pick a little talk a little cheap cheap cheap talk a lot pick a little more. and not to brag, but i also wrote a book that everybody loves so i am an author now. plus i play everywhere, pretty much all the time everybody shows up and they pretty much always love it.
