Todd Holtsberry solely produces everything in house being a multi-instrumentalist. He is completely self taught and just simply slips into a natural groove that suits the song. Todd has a philosophy of playing for the sake of the piece by gelling everything together without sounding too busy. The challenge of blending each track to properly accompany the others is the motivation for a seasoned veteran to test their abilities with each new tune. A musician grows when his or her previous techniques become modified to compliment a new style of melodies and polyrhythms. Todd states, "It's a journey for tone chasers and proper layer construction can lead one to sounds that move like ships through transatlantic waters."
Todd's mother plays piano so there was always one in the house for him to bang on as a child. His older brother played guitar and showed Todd cords at a very young age. Also, Todd's father played drums and his son started to follow in his footsteps as a kindergardener. The kit quickly perished from his extreme hyperactivity before he could properly learn. It wasn't until his 13th birthday when the first keyboard came into play. Music caught its second wind and he quickly learned all of the major and minor cords. The original songs started to come together and Todd was able to incorporate poems from several years before to create comedic pieces. Rich Little influenced his sense of humor and Todd can mimic nearly anyone within minutes.
Todd has collaborated with many artists since the beginning from different parts of the globe. He's been a session player sitting in with too many projects to mention bringing the best groove possible. Todd is a phenomenal guitar player that can work the fretboard with his own signature style. Keep an eye on this guy because he's shooting for the stars.
