Todd Ashburn – Songwriter / Bassist / Producer – {Music Photographer Nashville, TN}

A while back you may remember I mentioned partnering with a good friend, Todd Ashburn, to help me get some emotional thoughts into a song.  (http://eps-blog.com/songwriting-in-the-studio/)

The way Todd was able to take the lyrics and emotions in my head and turn them into music was simply incredible. The whole process was very healing for me and the final product is a song I will cherish always.  Since then, we have worked together on other projects.  I wish I could take credit for it…I only throw an idea out with a few lyrics here and there and he manages to create an awesome song.  I often call him the “Jack Black” from the movie School of Rock.  He will send me clips of a tune in his head with all the instruments and not use a single instrument.  It’s quite entertaining!

Not only is Todd an amazing songwriter, this man has a few other talents up his sleeve…no he’s not a magician, but he can make a bass sound unbelievable.  You would have to see it with your own eyes to believe it!  He’s performed and toured with more than a couple major acts.

Todd’s latest project will have him appearing as Waylon Jenning’s bass player in the feature film “My Brother, Your Outlaw: The Waylon Jennings Story”.  He reached out to me to take some shots of him and his bass guitars for a bass guitar magazine.  We had a good ole time on the corner of 12th and Porter….him playing an unplugged bass and me wearing my “Paul Bear Bryant” hat!  Oh and I must tease him that he made it an easy shoot since he used to be a model for Tommy Hilfiger!  Check out his website at http://www.toddashburn.com/!

    Glad to see my boy making it. When I say my boy he is my cousin. Todd, his brother David, and me grew up together and I consider them the brothers I didn’t have. To say we are tight is an understatement.
    Keep me posted if you can.
