Singer, songwriter, and storyteller, Todd Snider’s current biography starts off with “I started making up songs in 1986. I made an album in 1994. I also started a tour in 1994 and that tour is, in a way, still going.” For over 20 years now, Snider has been keeping that tour going, telling stories, playing songs, and making new fans along the way. He has made over a dozen albums including his most recent effort, 2016’s Eastside Bulldog, and has played with his band the Hard Working Americans (with members of Widespread Panic and Chris Robinson Brotherhood), and collaborated with many more musicians over the years. You don’t expect barrelhouse boogie woogie, straight up garage rock or power pop from the ratchety voice who gave you “Talkin’ Seattle Grunge Rock Blues,” the iconic East Nashville Skyline or the Great American Taxi-backed Time As We Know It: The Songs of Jerry Jeff Walker. Yet fresh from fronting the freewheeling social commentary of the jam-meets-Tom Petty Hard Working Americans – featuring Widespread Panic’s Dave Schools and Chris Robinson Brotherhood’s Neal Casal – Todd Snider’s Eastside Bulldog suggests there’s a new kinda rumble under the hood of the iconoclastic troubadour. Eastside Bulldog is romp, a stomp and one hell of a party. One listen to the careening refrain of ”chicks and cars and partying hard,” with Jen Gunderman’s pumping piano and Snider’s slamming surf guitar on the music business skewering “Hey, Pretty Boy,” it’s obvious that spun-out fishtailing is where it’s at for the man whose writing’s been hailed by John Prine, Jimmy Buffett, Kris Kristofferson, Keith Sykes and Guy Clark.
