Tod resides in Uptown, Chicago, just blocks away from the Wilson Windsor Apartments, where Everett Hull began work on his invention of the amplified peg or “Ampeg.”

Tod took music as an interest early on in life and his first musical influence was shaped in the 70’s by his mom’s records… the upbeat songs of Motown, The Beatles, Rod Stewart, and The McCoys, to name a few. In high school, he was convinced by friends to pick up the bass guitar and join their band. Learning by ear, Tod quickly became efficient on the instrument, and after the first live gig he was hooked, and knew he wanted to be a “lifer” musician. Then he discovered groups like the Stones, Allman Brothers Band, Cream, Sly & the Family Stone, Free, and classic blues artists, like Muddy Waters & John Lee Hooker, this shaped a big “musical educational” period for Tod. In 1998 he helped form The Steepwater Band along with Jeff Massey & Joseph Winters. Since then The Steepwater Band has performed over 2,500 shows in the U.S. and abroad, averaging 140-150 for the past 5 years.

“Taking example from my influences, I pride myself as always playing for the song, although I love to take bass into my own original direction at times… a Duck Dunn meets Jack Bruce approach. I love having a fat tone, full of cutting mid-range, with a touch of grind. And helping me achieve that tone is my amplifier of choice, for over 20 years, Ampeg. Needless to say, I’ll always be an Ampeg guy. Nothing sounds as good to my ears, period. ” – TMB
