Tod Hughes - Time Slow Down

.
Tod Hughes writes and sings (mostly) whimsical folk-ish songs. Time Slow Down features lighthearted songs, driven by Hughes' conversational vocal style. Hughes has a notable ability to sing in a sincere, direct manner, which makes him more of a communicator than a mere performer.

During the love song, "Worth Waiting for," Hughes imagines himself to be Johnny Cash, as he does his best (and honestly, it's not much like The Man in Black) Cash impression. But we forgive him because the song - with its sparkling fiddle accompaniment - is just such a feel-good tune. Hughes taps into our universal hatred for those that are hipper-than-thou during "Drinking Coffee in a Hipster Place." He's backed by saucy female vocals, and the track features some nice muted trumpet coloring.

Hughes is based in Calgary, Alberta, where country music is popular, and he has a little fun with country song stereotypes during "Nothing Too Obscure." The song also smartly references The X-Files.

An album title like Time Slow Down suggests songs about life in the fast lane. However, Tod Hughes is by no means speeding down life's highway. Rather, he's a more of a stop and smell the roses kind of guy, and his music is smart, funny and entertaining.
