Introducing Todd Talk

Posted by amanda in Dec 13, 2016 with No Comments

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.

Let’s (Re)mix It Up With J Farell

Posted by amanda in Dec 01, 2015 with No Comments

We’ve been hearing a lot about the “OMG” remix coming out on December 4, 2015. I have personally loved Todd Carey’s original release of “OMG” from the beginning and the remix has blown my mind! So who is the guy behind this masterful new version of one of my favorite songs and how did he and Todd get connected? I was able to mix it up with J and am excited to share with you the fun story.

In ten words or less tell the #ToddSquad who J Farell is?

The music producer from the future.

When did you first hear “OMG” and what about it made you want to remix it?

About a month ago, I was wrapping up my remix of Max’s song “Gibberish,” and I posted an Instagram video of me producing it in the studio. Todd ended up liking the video. I went over to Todd’s profile on Twitter and clicked on the link for his newest single “OMG.” I was groovin’ to it for about a minute when I starting thinking that I’d love to add my flair to the song to really give it something people can dance to. I immediately tweeted Todd, “I wanna remix ‘OMG’,” and the rest is history.

What goes into remixing a song that’s already on the radio?

I like to think of remixing as my sixth sense. I hear a song on the radio, and sometimes I can begin to hear different instruments behind the vocals. It could be a new drum beat or entirely new background music. I’ll start humming the new melody that’s in my head or beatboxing the drum beat. When I get really inspired, I’ll download the original song into my production software and produce a demo using my drum pad and piano keys. A lot of the time, I know it’s gonna be something special when I start dancing to my own music. Then, I’ll send the demo over to my connections at the record labels to see if they want to sign a deal for the remix. When the label likes it, they’ll send me the original vocal recording session from the artist. Over this past summer, I produced the official “Good For You” remix for Selena Gomez, and it was awesome getting to work with her vocals from her studio recording session.

In addition to remixing, do you write your own music?

I’ve written and produced thousands of original beats and melodies over the years, and I’m always collaborating with singers, rappers, and vocalists.

If you weren’t into music, what do you think you might be doing with your life?

I would be a storm chaser in a pickup truck chasing tornadoes in Kansas and Oklahoma. I get such a rush when the sky turns black, and I love feeling that electricity in the air! I know it’s super dangerous, but it’s always been on my bucket list.

What’s your favorite line in “OMG” and why?

“You think you’re so smart, you got a breaking hearts degree.” I love how tongue-in-cheek this line is!

Have you ever had a relationship like the one described in “OMG”?

Definitely. I’d be lying if I said it never happened, but I still follow my heart so that I don’t repeat the past

 

Thank you, J, for taking the time to answer these questions and give the #ToddSquad an inside look at how the remix came to be. We can’t wait to see the world’s reaction!

Don’t forget, #ToddSquad, pre-order the “OMGremix” HERE and check out J on social media (links below).
