Noted lyricist and composer David Stoddard is a songwriter and teacher living in Minnesota. He tours throughout the US and Canada, where he plays mostly concert venues, living rooms, and other dedicated listening environments. ┬áHis music is unique–no one performing today can take an audience on such a rollercoaster of emotion. ┬áThat’s a guarantee.

David has won the Kerrville New Folk award, as well as songwriting awards at the South Florida Folk Festival, the Tucson Folk Festival, the Minnesota Folk Festival, and others. His music gets compared to both Randy Newman and Loudon Wainwright III, and he once got mistaken for George Winston at a bookstore in Milwaukee. True story.

“It’s not often I hear a songwriter that can write funny and write serious. David Stoddard is one of the rare ones. I love his stuff.” –John McCutcheon
