Winter Park, CO - Boston based singer-songwriter, Todd Thibaud will share his musical talents with our mountain community this Friday, July 1 from 5:00-7:00 p.m. at Cooper Creek Square's Music on the Mall. Thibaud's songs represent a slice of what life is really like ... the pains and pleasures, love lost and life reborn. Using songwriters like Elvis Costello, Neil Finn, Johnny Cash and John Hiatt for inspiration, Thibaud has built a sound that is entirely his own. His music is meshed with elements of Americana, Folk, Country and Roots Pop Rock, making it seem at once familiar and new. After fronting his band, "Courage Brothers" and releasing two independent records in the early '90's (Something Strong & Wood), Thibaud went solo and recorded two critically lauded albums for Doolittle Records, 1997's "Favorite Waste of Time" (produced by Bostonian musician Kevin Salem) and 1999's "Little Mystery" (Co-produced with Jim Scott). In addition to various live recordings and DVD's he's since released three more studio recordings, 2002's "Squash", 2005's "Northern Skies" (Both produced by Adam Steinberg- Patty Griffin, Dixie Chicks) and his most recent effort "Broken". Thibaud tours throughout Europe regularly in both full band and acoustic formats and performs regionally at home in the U.S. This will be his first visit to Winter Park.Music on the Mall is every Friday from 5:00-7:00 p.m. all summer long, admission is free and a great way to kickoff the weekend with family and friends.
