We are very excited to announce that Todd Bauchspies will be one of our headlining artists for In The Light! (get your tickets here!)
Todd’s guitar playing has been compared to guitarists such as Leo Kottke, Michael Hedges, Al Petteway, and Phil Keaggy. This is no coincidence as each of these players has had a large part in his development as an acoustic guitarist. Todd also credits electric players Steve Morse and Alan Holdsworth as huge influences.
His music has been described as evocative, soothing, spiritual, happy, mournful, and playful. As a PRS Artist, Todd has enjoyed the creativity and freedom in composing and performing original material for large and small crowds alike.
He enjoys sharing stories behind the eclectic titles of his pieces as well as the various tunings and techniques he uses. People of all ages and musical backgrounds enjoy relaxing, listening and watching Todd perform a variety of music which has been influenced by many genres.
On a personal note: CJ Shiloh, our Executive Director at The Musical Autist, has a deep and life-long honor for both Todd and his wife, Cindy, who was CJ’s piano and vocal teacher from elementary through high school. The greatness of not only their musical talents but also their spirituality and strength of marriage has been a profound and continuing influence in her life. If it were not for Cindy and Todd, it’s highly unlikely The Musical Autist would even exist!
