If you haven't heard of the SXSW Festival, you might want to come from under that rock! The genuine sense of appreciation for the arts & creativity is the essence of the fest. And then there are the opportunities-- like the one that our very own, Tod.jAE was granted. When announced as one of the 15 Makin' It Mag hand-selected acts to perform in Austin, TX, Tod.jAE was thrilled, to say the least. In docu-style, The HometownHero invites you into his mind as he preps for the littShow (set to release SOON)!
General Update
"The Night Is Young" is buzzing throughout Charlotte and the Carolinas! The Night Is Young is a cohesive 7-song compilation from a collection of 15 songs. "It was tough to decide and they can't all make it [on the album]", exclaims Tod, " 'Promises' is a fave, but it wasn't the vibe I wanted for this album". With punchy production paired with a rythmic flow from Tod.jAE, Promises delivers an "in-the-whip" vibe to listeners. This track may have missed the album, but it definitely belongs on the playlist!
Single Release
After a few years of sporadic singles & much hype on the Charlotte music scene, Tod.jAE blessed listeners & fans of the culture with his 2nd album "The Night Is Young". This 7-track gem is the first project from Tod.jAE since "The Campaign" in 2014. In true Tod.jAE form, he remains true to the lyricist in him, with bar-heavy content and rhyme schemes that compliment the genius beat selections. So far, the project has spawned singles, "TNIY (Blondie)" (with video) & "My Ends" and is on all platforms!
