Tod Hornby decided to pursue a life of music on February 9, 1964, the night he saw the Beatles on the Ed Sullivan Show. As a kid he spent long hours in his room, albums on the turntable, learning to play guitar. He was intrigued by studio musicians of the ‘60s and ‘70s and hoped to follow in their footsteps one day. He spent much of the late ‘70s and early ‘80s pursuing that goal in Southern California. He also pursued his Christian faith and played with a number of Christian artists. He recently retired after 21 years as part of the pastoral staff at the church that he serves.
Tod plays an eclectic mix of singer-songwriter, Motown, folk, country, and original music. Songs from artists as diverse as Hall & Oates, Steely Dan, Fleetwood Mac, John Hiatt, Bruce Hornsby, Gabe Dixon, Bonnie Raitt, Tom Petty, George Jones, Al Green, and others. He loves playing the “deep cuts” – the lesser-known songs from many of these artists’ albums.
