Todd Sharp began making music when he was eleven years old, back in Cleveland Ohio, a son of musical parents, and started gigging just a few years later. In 1975 Daryl Hall & John Oates hired him to play lead guitar. Todd, all of nineteen, left town and never looked back. He has made many friends over some forty plus years of playing music. From his early gigs playing guitar with Hall and Oates back in ’75, to working with artists such as Fleetwood Mac’s Christine McVie, Mick Fleetwood and Bob Welch to Rod Stewart, Delbert McClinton, Randy Meisner, Carlene Carter, Richard Marx, Aussie icon Jimmy Barnes and French legend Eddy Mitchell.
Todd’s songwriting achievements include co-writing the top ten hit; “Got a Hold On Me” with Christine McVie (1983), Juice Newton’s “A Little Love” (1984), along with other notable covers by McVie, Mick Fleetwood, Bob Welch, Jeff Healey, Rick Braun and others.
Todd has also worked alongside greats such as Bonnie Raitt, Eric Clapton, Glen Clark, Al Stewart, David Crosby, Bill Medley, Rick Braun, Eric Carmen, Steve Winwood and many others. Todd has two solo records to his credit; “Who AM I” (MCA, 1986, prod. Don Gehman), and “Walking All the Way” (WannaPlay, 2002, prod. Sharp, & Stephen Bruton).
