PhunkYard creates an exotic fusion of jazz, funk and rock instrumental music, combining a mixture of syncopated rhythms, melodic heads and creative arrangements.

Todd Pate

Todd Pate is singer-songwriter living in LA, though his Texas roots run deep under his well lived, and always honest, music. With a raw and simple and soundscape and lyrics that never waiver from his intent, he searches for the straightest road through the very complex human condition. While echoing Townes Van Zandt, Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings, even drifting into thegreat country tone of The Rolling Stones in the late 60s and early 70s, Todd remains thoroughly grounded in today.

The first song Todd remembers hearing was Willie Nelson's hit, On The Road Again, in 1980. His first memories are steeped the rowdy, funky sound of the famous Outlaw Movement. The radio was always on when he was growing, and Todd was always listening.

And watching. When Todd saw Kris Kristofferson on a TV show when he was very little and thought to himself, "that, that is what I want to be." But he became a baseball player instead, then an actor, a playwright, a horse wrangler, carpenter, lackey for a low rent hustler in Chicago, a day laborer with a distant memory of a college education, even a frequenter of cross-country rides on Greyhound buses. But Todd played his guitar and wrote songs all along the way. Now he's only focused on music. He's played in many of the coffee shops and bars in Hollywood, and toured the bars along the West Coast, across the Southwest and all the way through Texas.

Rich Meyer

Rich an amazing songwriter and virtuoso keyboard player, has done his time playing around the country. From Hawaii playing in top 40 bands to bigger acts, having short stints the band Ambrosia and others. At one time he also had members in his band that would turn out to become Toto. Rich got away from music to raise a family for a period but is now back full force and when you hear the songs, you go on that ride to another place where vivid pictures tell a story. Each one of his songs do that very thing and you will want more. Check him for yourself by listening at iTunes or Spotify.
