What’s a bassist (ie ensemble player) to do when there aren’t gigs? Pick the acoustic guitar back up and go back to their roots. Back in the mid-00’s perilous relish was active on YouTube with interesting rearrangements of classic rock and one-hit-wonder tunes. And going way back, it was finger-style folk and some bluegrass.

Calling this style, “yacht-coustic“, todd is now booking the occasional solo show (while also gigging regularly with Soul Stingers). The video below showcases a variety of vocal arrangements – todd also does instrumental tunes and live looping depending on the gig. 

The goal is music you recognize, presented in a way that is a bit fun and different, with a splash of humor and tongue often firmly in-cheek. Yes, Stayin’ Alive is a country tune – after all, Australia is about as far south as you can get…

Make a request at a gig? Sure – pick an artist and ask away!
