Todd's music is on the leading edge of Today's Country sound and features a wide array of songs that make one want to 'laugh'- Zero to Hero, 'rock'- High Time, 'dance'- Stand Up, 'think'- Life's about People and 'cry' with Todd's tribute song to Cancer Survivors- Journey On!

Casey Clarke/ CMT Canada
After watching Todd perform on CMT Canada’s Big in a Small Town, Casey Clarke was quoted as saying ... “There is no one in the business who has sacrificed more in the pursuit of their dream”.

Amanda Wilkinson/Small Town Pistols  
"Todd's voice is like a warm blanket with his rich deep tones" There is no doubt about it Todd Richard is making a strong impression on music industry personnel and fans alike. Just listen and you will hear why....

Jennifer Fienberg, Chilliwack Progress “The producers liked his appealing and folksy back story: a hard-working guy and his wife sell almost everything to fuel his rock-and-roll dream of making it in the country music world as a singer-songwriter, partly to honour his late father's memory. With his smooth vocals and distinct look, he made it to Nashville, recorded a video, and some songs with some crack session players and has been slogging away ever since with his debut CD, Journey On. A panel of CMT Canada judges winnowed down the contestants to 30 people in their search for the next big country artist. The actual winner of the $100,000 prize package gets a recording contract in studio and much more. "Gotta stay positive!" ”
