Album Notes
Todd Banks has experienced a wide variety of musical styles as a performer and a writer. He began his classical training on piano at eight years old in the Chicago area. After several years, Todd also added bass, guitar, vocals, and began writing lyrics.

While attending Purdue University, he formed Psychic Warrior and had his first independent release "Airy-ell" in 1985. After graduation, Todd moved to Los Angeles where he formed, performed, and recorded in numerous rock and alternative bands including "The Black Watch" on Eskimo / Dr. Dream records and "Carbon 14" on Vampyre Records.

In 2001, Todd was featured on a multi-national compilation, "Left-Handed Bassists Review" with a composition of his entitled, "Memories". In 2002 he also appeared on the sequel, "Lefty Bass II" with the instrumental, "The Dance of Water" from the forthcoming cd, "Spirit Walk".

On this release, "Spirit Walk", he plays all the instruments: guitar, bass, vocals and percussion with songs that stir the imagination. This collection presents four vocal performances, including two original Cherokee songs "Spirit Walk" and "Osiyo". "Osiyo" is a Cherokee father's welcoming and naming song for his newborn son. It captures the hope and emotion of the bond that naturally occurs. "Spirit Walk" or Adonvdo Aisv is an emotional tribal chant that reflects a journey of the soul. "Cloud People" and "Let Go", the other vocal performances, demonstrate Todd's ability to compose insightful lyrics and wrap them in memorable melodies.

The album also contains seven instrumentals, including "The Dance of Water", which range from smooth and mellow to energetic and powerful. "Teardrops" and "Because of You" are soft and sad while "Spirit Horse", "Arizona", and "I Love to Watch Him Run" are fast, upbeat and energetic. Throughout the eleven songs, Todd demonstrates tasteful and melodic musicianship with an ear for song crafting. Let "Spirit Walk" move you.

Additionally, Todd has also released four cds of piano compositions in 2000, 2002, 2005, and 2011 entitled "Dreamscapes", "Landscapes", "Lifescapes" and "The Roads We Walk" that are available on
