Todd C Walker - Wispy Mop Music: Bio

Todd Walker has been performing acoustic music since the mid-1970's, first as a member of the popular New England duo 'Richard Todd' (Todd Walker & Rich Brachold), playing & singing cover songs in bars, restaurants & ski lodges, then as a solo act. When Rich's career path detoured him into the education field, Todd continued as a solo performer from the late '70's to mid-'80's, primarliy in the Boston & Cape Cod area. He also managed a side career as an actor/model for television & movies.
To concentrate on being a Dad, and to focus on a successful surf shop business, he put his guitar under the bed for 11 years to run Cinnamon Rainbows Surf Company (Cape Cod, MA & Hampton Beach, NH).
In the late 1990's he took his sons to see Christopher Williams and Livingston Taylor. Seeing them have fun on stage, and realizing how much fun he used to have doing the same, Todd dusted off his guitar and began writing his own songs, which brings us here.
Currently performing and running Wispy Mop Music (acoustic music promotion, poster design and performer photos).
Award(s):
2003 Honorable Mention Winner of the John Lennon Songwriting Contest for his song 'No Other Man'.
2006 SAW Songwriting Contest (Songwriters Association of Washington).
