Todd Sharp Single Release
Wednesday, May 29, 7:00 pm
at The Mockingbird Theater

There’s a palpable excitement in Todd Sharp’s voice when he talks about his upcoming tour, an opportunity to celebrate the release of his new single “Back to 1” (co-written and recorded with Stan Lynch, of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers fame) not to mention the re-release of his 2002 album Walking All the Way, and most of all, to do what he loves most: Playing music with his friends.

With a career built on touring and recording as a guitarist with Rod Stewart, Hall & Oates, Delbert McClinton and Fleetwood Mac’s Christine McVie, Mick Fleetwood and Bob Welch – among others, Sharp has played for some of the biggest crowds around, whether a packed Wembley Stadium (capacity 90,000) or the 275,000 or so folks who showed up at California Jam II in 1978. And while playing to massive crowds may be the dream of young aspiring rockers all over the world, Sharp — like many seasoned musicians of his caliber — finds the intimate setting of smaller theaters and clubs to provide a direct, connect-to-the audience experience that is hard to beat.
