Christopher Cross made history with his 1980 self-titled debut album, winning five Grammy Awards, including—for the first time ever—the four most prestigious awards: Record of the Year (for the single “Sailing”), Album of the Year, Song of the Year (also for “Sailing”), and Best New Artist. Now, 30+ years after his extraordinary emergence into the music business, Cross continues his recording and performing career with a new album, Take Me As I Am. The collection is a unique hybrid of sorts – the songs are instrumentals with choruses to create the lyrical landscape.
Legendary singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, producer and author Todd Rundgren will take the stage performing such ToddStock favorites as “Hello It’s Me,” “Bang the Drum All Day,” “Can We Still Be Friends,” “I Saw The Light” and “We Gotta Get You a Woman.” Rundgren has performed a diverse range of styles as a solo artist and as a member of the bands Nazz and Utopia. At 71, he’s still considered A Wizard, A True Star (the title of his 1973 solo album). His latest solo album is called White Night (2017).
Micky Dolenz is an actor, singer, director, producer, writer, radio DJ, inventor, and all-around performer extraordinaire. Dolenz is best known as a vocalist and drummer of the 1960s pop legends The Monkees. The Monkees not only achieved great success as a TV show but also as viable recording artists; selling in excess of 65 million units. Number one hits included “Last Train to Clarksville,” “I’m a Believer” (both with lead vocals by Micky) and “Daydream Believer.” The group’s first five albums went platinum.
Jason Scheff is the longtime tenor lead vocalist of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inducted supergroup Chicago. Scheff joined the group in 1985 replacing the iconic vocalist/bass player Peter Cetera going on to be one of the principal songwriters and main contributors throughout Chicago’s career. Scheff’s songwriting, vocals, and musicianship helped create the most successful recording era of Chicago (the 1980s and 1990s) and is the voice across 4 decades of their music: 1980s, 1990s, 2000s, 2010s.
Joey Molland is an English composer and rock guitarist whose recording career spans five decades. He is best known as a guitarist, singer and songwriter of classic rock legends Badfinger (“Day After Day,” “Baby Blue,” “No Matter What”). Molland is the last surviving member from the band’s classic line-up and is still playing concerts worldwide. He is currently recording a new solo album produced by Mark Hudson (Cher, Ringo Star, Aerosmith, Ozzy Osbourne, Harry Nilsson).
