Singled Out: Todd Grubbs
After I finished my first CD "Combination" I started to record my follow up with Mark Prator on Drums and Sean Malone on bass. I got as far as doing the drums, bass and scratch guitar tracks on 4 or 5 songs when I decided to focus my attention on a more potentially lucrative direction. I spent the next few years working on projects that I thought were more commercially viable but never really achieved anything financially or artistically. I then decided to go back to composing and recording the music that I loved and put out 2 new instrumental CDs.
When I started working on my 4th I remembered the old tracks and went back 10 years later and transferred the 2 inch tapes to protools and went to work. On a couple of the songs I finished them close to the original but on what became to be "The Electric Life" was completely rewritten to the old drum and bass tracks and what was once a mediocre metal track became one of my favorites. I added some effects such as an electrical storm, electricity sounds and even Thomas Edison himself. I also included a chorus of vocals that uses a made up language that was also included on a song called "Ma La Vo Day" off of my 'Beautiful Device' CD.
There is still a lot of crazy guitar throughout but the older I get the more I am interested in composition, unique melodies, and sounds. My next CD "Return of the Worm" is even stranger.
Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and learn more about the album - right here!
