Big Head Todd, sans Monsters, on Morning Sessions

With more than two decades on the music scene Big Head Todd and the Monsters have developed a loyal following based on building relationships with fans. "The more albums that we put out, the more songs people connect with, " says frontman Todd Park Mohr. "We do cruises, we sign autographs after shows. We do a lot of things that acknowledge that relationship and look people in the eye and say, 'howdy.'"

Tune in at 9:20 a.m. Friday
for Morning Sessions as Mohr introduces you to a batch of new songs from the band's ninth album, Rocksteady. The solo performance strips down an album that exudes a Caribbean and R & B vibe. "We started out going into the studio with over thirty songs, and we decided somewhere in the middle decided we need to split these out into a couple of different records," Mohr says. "We've never really done a focused record--we've been kind of an eclectic group. So, it was really fun for us."

Big Head Todd and the Monsters perform at the
9:30 Club on Thursday, September 23rd.
