Tody Castillo and Winter Wallace are the musical guests and Jim "Eggs" Bricker, blogger from breakfastontour.com is our "Audience of One" for our holiday show and 1st anniversary episode. Award-winning record producer Dan Workman and Rosa Guerrero are the Hosts.
Texas songwriter Tody Castillo's sound has been compared to Tom Petty, Ron Sexsmith, Ryan Adams and Rufus Wainwright with the vocal stylings of Jeff Buckley, Fran Healy and Jeff Tweedy. When Steve Earle first heard Tody's music while shopping for producers for his critically acclaimed album Townes, its claimed that one listen gave Earle enough confidence to hire Houston producer Steve Christensen for the project. Castillo's new album Windhorse was born out of personal tragedy, yet teeming with hope.
According to the Houston Press, Winter Wallace is a phenomenally genteel indie band that has a certain Ingrid Michaelson/Cat Power quality to them, with similarities stretching beyond similar song format or quirky clothing accessories or soft colors on their MySpace pages: they are legitimately talented. Their first EP, entitled Lisa, was produced by Dan Workman.
