Jonah Ate the Whale
Todd Carter Koeppen is an artist whose music has been described as combining the driving, pure pop sensibility and creativity of the Dave Matthews Band with the hope and intensity of Creed. His unique and powerful vocal style accentuates insightful lyrics that cry out in the name of truth, promise that answers will come, and attack the pomposity of conventional thinking. Born and raised in Oregon, and a Seattle transplant since 1994, Todd is entrenched in the Northwest scene, and can be seen performing all over the region. Whether by himself as an acoustic act, or with his backup band, The Big World Band, it's easy to see that Todd is eager to please his fans. In addition to his solo act, Todd is also known in the Northwest as being a co-founder (and a current member) of Lucy Lunchmouth, one of Seattle's most loved underground bands. Some of you may also remember Todd as being the co-producer, engineer, and guitar player on the Cambodian benefit CD 'House of Joy'. The House of Joy (for those of you who don't know) is a collection of Hymns reworked for the modern era. Released in 2001, the CD has raised over $15,000 for the Cambodian leg of International Childcare Ministries, and has created a lot of publicity for the plight of children in Cambodia.
