ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Time Slow Down is the most refreshing roots rock record I've heard this year. Within seconds of clicking play I was hooked and you best believe that thing is getting repeated...again and again...." Middle Tennessee Music.com

Popwrapped

"Roots Rock has another star player on the team. With the talented Tod Hughes from Calgary, Alberta releasing his inspired and honest new album Time Slow Down, many listeners are going to put this well-produced and quirky album on repeat. Mixed with a beautifully clean sound, it is interesting to see that the gritty-live-pub-band sound still remains intact"

The Big Takeover

"Time Slow Down, released May 8th, is a record with artistic and thematically diverse depths that only reveal themselves further upon repeated listens, and it is also a record that will never fail to reward the listener or put a smile on their face."

IAE Magazine

"Tod Hughes has released his new 9-track LP, Time Slow Down, a solid work of folk music art filled with meaningful songs that warm the heart. Similar to artists like John Fogerty, with the potential to bring us what Jerry Garcia of Grateful Dead gave us vocally, Tod has a very structured sound and every track is worth each second you spend strolling down its musical pathways. Nothing about Time Slow Down says mainstream radio, but with artists like Tod you can’t expect to get a chart-topping pop record. Hes a crafty writer who paints pictures on the walls of your mind that seem like real events. I love this kind of writing and if you’re anything like me, you’ll appreciate what you hear."

Skope Magazine

"Tod Hughes creates a timeless masterpiece with “Time Slow Down” with a sound
Lthat touches the soul."

Scallywag Magazine

"Time Slow Down has elements of indie country, jazzy backdrops, roots, rock, and singer-songwriter clarity. He looks back and forward with the same zeal. Mistakes were made, fun was had, stories were created, and here they are. Tod Hughes is serious about these life lessons. He’s also funny. Hughes’s voice at times sounds like John Prine’s, especially on the track “Darkness That Cries.”He is reminiscent of Randy Newman on “Drinking Coffee in a Hipster Place” with maybe a little Fred Schneider from the B-52s thrown in as he comically laments about the good old days of gas station coffee you can chew. On the “Time Slow Down,” Hughes creates a love song of sorts to Canada, possibly specifically his native Winnipeg and his adopted Calgary. Whomever it’s meant for, it’ll stay in your head. Lovingly skirmishing with the world, Tod Hughes is clearly have a good time. And we’re having one with him."

Neufutur

"Hughes is able to make an effort here that remains with one long after the CD has ceased to play"

Viral Pirate

"If you’re a fan of the likes of Dire Straits, John Fogerty, Wilco and the like, you’ll love Tod Hughes"

Tod Hughes hails from Calgary, Canada where he lives with his family. Tod writes real music that comes from the heart, stories of love, hurt, happiness, fear, disappointment and fun. A message of hope is thread through the stories which are sometimes serious and sometimes a bit tongue in cheek. The toe tapping melodies and memorable choruses will stick in your mind for days after hearing them. They are told with truth and respect.

A song from Tod's first album “Brad’s Song” went to number 2 on radio charts in Louisiana, and the album charted throughout the US, as well as being picked up for TV by the Discovery Channel, NASCAR Station and others.

The follow up album "Time Slow Down" is a full length with more depth, humour and heart than ever!

Inspired by the great storytellers of our time, men like Johnny Cash, Bob Dylan, JJ Cale, Neil Young and Leonard Cohen, Tod's unique style of telling the stories and engaging the listener resonates with folks of all ages.

Bandblurb
“Hughes clearly establishes himself as an important new talent.”
Skope Magazine
“they certainly serve notice of Tod Hughes’ songwriting skills”
Penweb
“We need more simple albums. The Canadian based singer/songwriter’s gifts are real. He has discernment enough to pull back on the reins enough to entertain audiences instead of letting his self-indulgence fly, but he has a talent for twisting and uncovering illuminating turns of phrase. “
Vents Magazine
“There is a higher intelligence presiding over these songs, but it informs the artistry; it’s the hand behind the curtain. “
‘there’s a refreshing amount of humor throughout the album”
