Since 2003, Todd Shannon has been honing his skills as a song writer, multi- instrumentalist, emcee and producer. Producing two albums for the CHH group “The Cruzaiders”, he was quickly recognized as a polished lyricists and a capable producer. As a member of “The Cruzaiders”, he’s shared stages with a diverse group of artists such as “Big Daddy Weave” and “Da T.R.U.T.H.”, and has produced for the standard bearing CHH group “The Crossmovement” on their final album Our place in HIStory.
Now a solo artist, Todd Shannon brings a rare combination of lyricism and musicianship to the table that has yet to be seen in the hip-hop genre. Proficient on both the keys and the guitar, he is equally at home either leading a live band or performing over heavy synths and 808 drums. His music is a blend of hip-hop and soul punctuated with urban worship and melodic interludes that is sure to move the genre forward.
