Todd Albright is a country blues, finger-style 12-string guitar player and singer living in Detroit, Michigan. An evening's sonic evocations of pre-WWII Blues covers an extensive selection of material recorded in the 1920's and 30's. Playing the 12 string guitar, Todd brings to life an era composed of Blind Lemon Jefferson, Sylvester Weaver, Blind Willie McTell and Leadbelly, among others. Todd's history playing the blues reaches over 25 years, though he does not remember a time that a guitar wasn't in his hands.

He first heard the country blues at the age of 12, thanks to a gifted John Lee Hooker record from his sister. The experience was a profound one – the blues felt right, and he immediately became a self-taught student of the genre aiming solely to interpret the sounds of the masters. Todd has performed across the U.S, both as a solo musician and alongside his former country blues string band band, The Staving Chain. Throughout the years, Todd has enjoyed sharing the stage with notable musicians and friends such as Dakota Dave Hull, Roy Book Binder, Charlie Parr, and Paul Geremia.

Third Man Records is proud to release his latest EP, Detroit Twelve String Blues & Rags featuring his take on songs by Blind Willie McTell, George Carter, and Leadbelly.
