January 2023 update: now with more jazz! I’ve been playing jazz standards as a bassist for decades, lately I’ve been woodshedding my jazz guitar chops and vocals. So yacht, country, jazz, and whatever else pops into my mind.

October 2022 updatenow with more dobro! The solo act continues to evolve, as yachtcoustic morphs into dobro-tastic. You’ll hear the one-hit wonders, yacht rock, country, and maybe some metal (?!?), done with dobro and vocals. Hope to see you soon.

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 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! More videos
