Singer/songwriter Todd Snider first garnered attention for his timely alt-rock satire "Talkin' Seattle Grunge Rock Blues," a folk-rock song that struck a chord with younger people fed up with angry alternative rock bands, and at the same time, appealed to aging rockers who grew up with the folk revival of the 1960s. Snider was born in Portland, Oregon, and grew up in Santa Rosa, Austin, Houston, and Atlanta. After moving to Memphis in the mid-'80s and establishing residency at a local club named the Daily Planet, he was discovered by singer/songwriter Keith Sykes. Snider's debut album, Songs for the Daily Planet, was released in the fall of 1994; "Talkin' Seattle Grunge Rock Blues" was added to the album as an afterthought only after intense lobbying by a Canadian music critic, and ultimately became a minor hit.

On his second effort, 1996's Step Right Up, Snider and his band, the Nervous Wrecks, continued blending bluegrass, blues, folk-rock, and country-rock to forge their own distinctive sound. On his third album, 1998's Viva Satellite, Snider took a Tom Petty approach, replacing much of his acoustic setup with twang-drenched electric guitar. In 2000, he signed to John Prine's Oh Boy label and returned to his singer/songwriter roots with Happy to Be Here. He recorded three more records, 2002's New Connection, 2003's Near Truths and Hotel Rooms Live, and 2004's East Nashville Skyline. That Was Me: The Best of Todd Snider 1994-1998 was released on Hip-O in 2005, and the next year Snider's eighth album, Devil You Know, came out. In 2008, Snider released the politically charged Peace Queer, an eight-song collection of anti-war songs as filtered through Snider's signature wit and amiable pathos. The Excitement Plan appeared from Yep Roc Records in 2009. In 2011, he released the two-disc concert set Live: The Storyteller, while 2012 saw both a traditional studio outing, Agnostic Hymns & Stoner Fables, plus a tribute album, Time as We Know It: The Songs of Jerry Jeff Walker. In 2013, Snider formed the band Hard Working Americans, and released two studio albums and a live set with the group between 2014 and 2016, while also touring extensively. But Snider returned to his solo career in the fall of 2016, releasing the album Eastside Bulldog in October of that year.

By Todd Snider - i started making up songs in 1986. i made an album in 1994. i also started a tour in 1994 and that tour is, in a way, still going. i never made a record so good that i could just sit home or did a show so bad that i had to. and man, i’ve done some bad shows, bad albums too. some of them are pretty good though, but you know, it’s been a while. i really need to put out a good album soon or i'm finished. sometimes these days i sing with a band. i think we made a good album. david schools of widespread panic is our leader. i make up our lyrics....we’re a jam band. our songs only go on about an hour or so but they’re still pretty long. cool people jam with us all the time and we have like a million shirts and stuff. i personally think we’re the seventh best band in the whole jam thing. on this tour i am coming to town with nothing but my guitar and stories like the old days. you know... pick a little, talk a little, pick a little, talk a little. cheap cheap cheap. talk a lot, pick a little more, and not to brag, but i also wrote a book that everybody loves so i am an author now. plus i play everywhere, pretty much all the time everybody shows up and they pretty much always love it.

Musicians often concoct necessary tales to capture the attention of the public. Rorey Carroll doesn't need that - she's lived it, and carries the story of her life in every line she writes. Carroll was born in Chicago to a rather normal American family brought up as a typical, middle class kid. This upbringing along with the fascination of alternative culture led her towards the great American love affair, the counterbalance to the American Dream. At a very young age, she lived in her car in cities all around the county, hopped freight trains, she even hiked the entire Appalachian Trail at age 20. She made money playing music to anyone who would listen, from the subways of New York City to the streets of Ohio. She became a living paradox, somewhere between running from the law and running from the normality of a Midwestern suburban lifestyle. The streets broke her down while another world picked her up. Bluegrass, acoustic music, anti-folk, campfires in the heart of the humboldt trim scene, in and out of trouble with the law - she inhaled the great spirit of rock and roll.

Presented in partnership with Flying Saucer Presents.
