San Francisco based guitarist/multi-instrumentalist and composer Todd Boston lives a musical life. He brings with him a devoted heart to connect, share and enrich the lives of those he touches through the positive effects of music, sound, and vibration.
While spending a number of months in the pristine mountains of Vermont he has recently completed his second album titled Touched by the Sun with Grammy winning producer Will Ackerman (Windham Hill Records) and a group of world class musicians including Tony Levin (Peter Gabriel) Eugene Friesen (Paul Winter Consort), Jeff Haynes (Pat Methany Group) and vocalist Snatam Kaur. He will be touring internationally in support of the new album as a soloist, as well as in various ensembles including singer Snatam Kaur's band together with longtime musical partner Ramesh Kannan (Tabla, Percussion) throughout 2012.
On stage, he fuses an acoustic world sound with advanced finger style guitar techniques, percussion and various instruments in combination with live looping technology to create a mesmerizing and impressionable sound. As a performer for concert audiences, yoga classes or at the bedside of hospital patients, Todd invokes the feelings of nature in his melodic and rhythmic playing to inspire his listeners.
"Todd Boston is almost impossibly talented, he's a brilliant guitarist. Touched by the Sun is the work of a mature artist who has come of age and who has given us a great recording of singularity and value, the world's a better place for his gift." ~ Will Ackerman (Grammy winner and found of Windham Hill Records)
