We are sharing our recent interview with multi-talented Aaron Todd.
Pro Media Mag : First of all please introduce yourself to our readers.
Aaron Todd : I’m a singer/songwriter multi instrumentalist. Producer. . . brand evangelist for Casio, IK Multimedia, Eventide Audio, and others. . . Blah, Blah lol.
Most importantly, I am a human being and I am hypersensitive to the moment we are in. It feels like there is a dark mood in the world, and as I travel, I would very much like to use my art to help the listener to “catch the light”
Pro Media Mag : Who or what inspired you to get into music industry?
Aaron Todd : I grew up the son of a preacher. My dad was a jet set evangelist, and I used to travel with him, sort of like the opening act as a youngster. I was playing piano and organ before my feet could touch the pedals. I had access to such a broad variety of instruments, Sundays were like being a kid in a candy store of musical sounds and instruments. I’m pretty sure I didn’t find music, music found me.
Pro Media Mag : Tell us about your recent release “Kissed By the Sun”?
Aaron Todd :This song is really a love letter to every one going through a challenge. We are all human, and there is something about a song that when it connects to us, that helps us remember its okay. I think that’s why we cry, or get goose flesh when we hear a song that moves us. It is why music, all of the arts
really, are so important.
Pro Media Mag : What kind of response you have received from the release?
Aaron Todd :I have been really encouraged by the number of Spotify streams, and Youtube plays. We are right at the beginning of the Release, and your .99 purchase on iTunes and Amazon, your adding to, and sharing on Spotify, and posting your comments and “likes,” and plays on Youtube are EVERYthing. It really matters to an indie Artist like myself.
Pro Media Mag : What’s your favorite music genre?
Aaron Todd :I listen to everything. Music is meant to suit our moment. And I may listen to Frank Ocean, and Tupac in one moment, Johnny Cash and Prince in the next, followed by Parliament Funkadelic and Joni Mitchell.
Pro Media Mag : What’s the best part of being a music artist?
Aaron Todd : Freedom to express oneself.
Pro Media Mag : Have you set some goals to achieve?
Aaron Todd : To touch as many people as possible with positive vibration through my work.
Pro Media Mag : Are you working on any new project?
Aaron Todd :I am completing the full CD “A Time For Poets,” which “Kissed By the Sun is the single. I also am finally close to completing my book, The Tao of Music.
