Good Afternoon ToddSquad!! On this amazing ToddTuesday I would like to introduce a new series called…. Todd Talk. It is a short question interview we will be doing on a regular basis with TC. I hope to have fun, exciting, challenging questions as well as questions that let us know what is going on in Todd’s music career. Stay tuned because I want to get you guys involved too! Enjoy reading the first edition below!
Welcome to Todd Talk:
1. Tell me how it feels to have your album Future Throwback out?
TC: Thanks for having me! So excited we are able to do this interview 🙂
Having Future Throwback finally out is a combination of excitement and relief. I’ve wanted everyone to hear this music so badly for so long. As a musician and a writer I was really anxious to get feedback on something I had been creating for years.
It’s also a giant weight off my shoulders. Not only the positive reactions and chart performance etc., but just as someone who wanted to share my art and begin a new project. The biggest reward is everyone sharing the lyrics and inside quotes, and singing the songs at shows!
2. I know it changes often but currently, what is your favorite song to play off Future Throwback?
TC: You nailed it! It changes all the time. Currently, I’m really enjoying “My Kind of Crazy”. We played it a lot when I first wrote it then retired it for about a year. Then, when the album came out and people started responding to that song, it was a surprise, bouncy, funky injection back into the shows.
“Ready” has been really fun, too. I achieved a singing goal of performing that song almost beyond my ability on the record. Now it’s a joy to try and get to that place on stage.
Two fun questions – not necessarily about music – to learn a little more about Todd Carey:
3. What inspires you?
TC: Great question. I’m getting daily inspiration from fresh modern music and imagery right now. Honestly, just going on Instagram and seeing what people are creating and how they are sharing their art; I love seeing people do it differently and viscerally.
4. You can give one object (the same object) to everyone in the world. What is it and why?
TC: Assuming everyone had basic amenities (food, shelter, clothing)…probably a smart phone or similar device. I just feel like it allows for the power to connect and learn.
5. Do you have anything you would like fans to know about Future Throwback being out in the digital and physical world? Words of thanks? Words fans may not hear every day in the Twitter world from you?
TC: Good question. As you observed, I try to express my gratitude often directly to my audience. I would clarify that there is an exchange here that I take extremely seriously. I try not to ask too much of my audience and try to always deliver as much as I can. I seriously make it my 24-hour mission. It’s always, “How do I best deliver the best music, art, imagery, offers and most importantly, spirit and inspiration?”
6. With Future Throwback out in the world, what’s next for Todd Carey?
TC: I feel SUPER free. I’m in love with the feeling of “I could write a whole new album, or just drop a single out of nowhere”. It’s incredibly liberating!
That being said, I’m working obsessively on new music, writing as much as I can on my own and collaborating with other people.
I feel more optimistic about the future than I’ve felt in a long time. A big part of this is the support I’ve gotten from my audience, the ToddSquad, my fans, my friends, and my family. They let me live this dream and I’m grateful.
