Big Head Todd and The Monsters
Since their formation in the mid-’80s, Big Head Todd & the Monsters (AKA BHTM, as their dedicated fans call them) have continued to evolve and explore, moving beyond their Colorado club circuit roots to become one of the most adventurous, respected and durable bands in America. Through constant touring and zeal to travel down new musical avenues in the studio, BHTM have honed their collective stew of influences into a trademark hybrid sound that’s immediately recognizable. The band has released a number of albums since 1989, including their 1993 album Sister Sweetly going platinum in the United States. With their most recent release, Black Beehive, the quartet has made its most personal and poignant album to date, a collection of new studio tracks that, says co-founder and figurehead Todd Park Mohr, “allows us to truly reach our audience through the language of the blues.”
