The Snails / Bio

The Snails are an eclectic act specializing in various forms of Jamaican music, blended with ragged 50's rock 'n' roll and the sweet sounds of American soul. The band is fronted by Todd Fausnacht on lead guitar, complemented by Tim Hildebrand on rhythm guitar. The driving beats spring from the rhythm section comprised of Josh Parry on drums, Ben Parry on bass, and Kyle Williams on organ. Though Fausnacht's vocals lead the group, it is not uncommon for the voices of all five members to come together in cascading harmony.

The Snails are no strangers to providing the musical backdrop for other acts. In early 2012 they toured the northeast U.S. with King Django as his backing band, as well as playing their own set each night. They performed with Stubborn Records artist Rocker T at the Stubborn Records 20th Anniversary Party, traveled the Midwest with Sammy K (formerly of the Brooklyn rocksteady band the Forthrights) in the summers of 2012 and 2013, and joined Vic Ruggiero of the Slackers on stage in Philadelphia last spring.

Last winter The Snails released their 4-song EP "The River," recorded at Version City Studios, on Stubborn Records. The release was commemorated by the Winter 2012-2013 Version City Tour. The Snails are currently working on a brand new double EP, "Songs from the Hydrogen Jukebox Volumes 1 and 2," set to be released May 13 2014 on Asbestos Records, followed by a three week US tour.
