WINTER PARK - National recording artist and Boston singer-songwriter, Todd Thibaud, will perform Friday, July 13 at Cooper Creek Square's Music on the Mall from 5:00-7:00 p.m. Thibaud is a Vermont born, Boston based musician who'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 and uniquely 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" and 1999's "Little Mystery". 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". He tours throughout Europe regularly in both full band and acoustic formats and performs regionally at home in the U.S. Thibaud will also be opening for The Samples at Smokin' Moe's (Cooper Creek Square) on Saturday, July 14 at 9 p.m.Music On The Mall is a summer concert series held every Friday through August 31 from 5-7 p.m. at Cooper Creek Square in Winter Park.
