A Bay Area native, Sickafoose spent some years in Los Angeles studying bass with Charlie Haden and composition with the great, late Mel Powell. Since then, he's been recording and performing with a ton of innovative folks and genre benders including Ani DiFranco, Don Byron, Trey Anastasio, Jenny Scheinman, Nels Cline, Ron Miles, Myra Melford, Adam Levy, Skerik, Stanton Moore, Bobby Previte, Scott Amendola, Will Bernard, Jessica Lurie, Erin McKeown, Gina Leishman, Carla Bozulich, Noe Venable, Etienne de Rocher, James Carney, Erik Deutsch, Shane Endsley, Tony Furtado, and Darol Anger.

The consistency of his personal voice within wildly diverse collaborations prompted the LA Weekly in 2004 to call Todd “one of the most comprehensive musical minds of this coast”
