Todd Barrow - Good Luck (Music Review)

Todd undoubtedly draws his sonic influence from country titans like Hank Williams and Jonny Cash. However, his melodies skew modern. Playing many instruments from piano and guitar to mandolin, harmonica and drums, this already multi-talented musician also doubles as a songwriter for both himself and others. Todd is said to be drawn to country music because of the stories, the people and the sincerity that comes from the heart. His song, ‘Good Luck’ captures all those elements just as well.

It feels like your run of the mill, feel good, encouraging country song, the kind of song I remember listening to when I was younger. The addition of the electric guitar is something that always elevates a country song for me. Further than that, the lyrics talk about people going for their dreams and a man just wishing them luck on their respective journeys.

The lyrics never go too far into false hope. It’s a reminder that it will get hard chasing your dream and there are people ready to pull rug from under you, but Todd is steady wishing you good luck, because everyone deserves to have dreams they are passionate about. And his voice really lends itself to the storytelling kind of feeling he’s drawn to. It’s stable without trying to be flashy, but he somehow, it still sounds like he’s almost speaking – it’s conversational.

You should take a listen for yourself if you need a little encouragement.

Michelle Rose Exclusive Interview

  Q:  What's it like growing up in Mpls?   Does the city have interesting stories about Prince?     A:  I only lived in Minneapolis until I was three, but I have fond memories of it.  Even now that I live in a suburb of Minneapolis, I still feel like I'm a part of Minneapolis.  I think a lot of Minnesotans have "Minneapolis Pride", even if they don't live in Minneapolis.  Minneapolis has so many fun things to see and do, and the arts are very important here, with so many theaters and live shows.     Prince put us on the map for music.  I hear Prince stories everywhere I go in Minnesota.  I've met so many people who were associated with Prince, including one of his dancers, and even a former Paisley Park employee working as a cashier at the local grocery store, so I've heard many Prince stories.  I wish I could've been a Chanhassen resident when Prince was still alive, because I know that many Chanhassen residents saw him casually riding his bike around

  Den Edie Flyah interveiw So could you tell us a little bit about your upbringing in Ohio?  I was sent to guitar leasons by my parents when I was 10 years old. My uncle lived with us back in    Ohio then and he played the drums. I grew up with a Rock band practicing in my basement.    I did not know it at the time but this little town I lived in knew how to rock. When did music become your main interest and what lead you to take music so seriously?   When I was 13 I saw my first rock concert. It was The kinks (one for the road tour.)    It changed me instantly. Suddenly that was the only thing I wanted to do.    To this day I'm still doing it. My guitar obsession had just started and    I did take some music theory lessons as well. I began learning how to create music or write a song.    I recently worked with two clasical Violinist. A Saxsaphone player and a Pianist. The Music theory lessons did pay off as I was able to talk to them in a launguage they understood.  Being a Singer
