St. Louis based composer, inventor and recording artist Todd Mosby has been performing genre-defying music — a blend of jazz, classical, and traditional Indian raga — for over 35 years. The contemporary acoustic and electric guitarist is the ONLY guitarist outside of the royal family in India, who has mastered the 20-stringed Imrat, which he co-invented. India's first family of sitarists dates back 500 years with an unbroken lineage.
“My goal as an artist is to introduce new audiences to a hybrid fusion of jazz, classical and Indian music while creating multi-field performances in unique and unexpected venues.”
Currently, Todd Mosby is in production of an acoustic guitar based set of recordings with Will Ackerman, founder of Windham Hill Records, a multi-Grammy Award winning Producer and Musician with ZMR (Zone Music Reporter) Lifetime Achievement Award.
Mosby's fusion music for the AXIS Band creates great grooves and hybrid styles which cross pollinates rhythms of different genres; Brazilian, R'nB, Pop, Afro-Cuban, BeBop, Rock, Soul, Funk, Middle Eastern and Hip Hop. Mosby's compositions are a terrific platform for amazing soloists to soar over lush harmonies and connect for an awe-inspiring audience experience.
Mosby has mastered multiple musical forms, enabling the St. Louis native to create works that are both highly creative and intelligent. His chamber orchestrations include solo, duet and chamber works for vocals, violin, cello, harp, guitar, piano, bass, drums, percussion and string quartet
