Music Video Crazy Cryin' Blues
We are very excited and happy to share our new video short with you, "Crazy Cryin' Blues"! Based on the Memphis Minnie recording from 1930 and is #7 on our "Reality" album. Todd Morgan was stirred by the historic aspects of the song and just had to follow up with this prohibition style short film. As luck would have it, not far away sitting along the Sacramento River rests the historic Ryde Hotel. Built in 1927, it served as an actual speak easy in its early years, and it's still quite a gem today. Rumors speak of its hauntings and stories tell that this is the hotel about which the Eagles hit, "Hotel California", was penned. The fact it was quite the Rock n' Roll hang out in the 60-70's, I'm inclined to believe that tale. We hope you will enjoy it!

Todd Morgan and the Emblems
Todd Morgan and the Emblems are undoubtedly one of the most exciting local bands in the Sacramento area. Since 2007, they’ve been delighting audiences with their sound and performance style. The band is led by Singer/Songwriter/Pianist Todd Morgan. Todd’s original music takes elements from every faction and every era of American music from 1920’s/30’s Jazz, to 50's/60's Rock 'n' Roll, to present-day Pop and Rock, and everything in between, creating a familiar, yet fresh and modern sound. Their emphasis is not only on the music and lyrics, but also on visual performance.
The band consists of four musicians, and contains two soloists: Todd Morgan on Piano/Vocals and Patrick Owen on electric lead guitar. Together, the band gives their audience a show to remember. Todd performs not only as an instrumentalist, but also an exciting singer and dancer for the band. With Todd’s distinct, exciting and informed vocal and performance style, Patrick’s energetic solos, and Jessica and Cameron’s backing, the band is one of the hottest bands in the Sacramento area.
Their newest album, "Reality", released in June of 2012 under just the name Todd Morgan, takes on a new direction musically from their self-titled album, having a much more modern approach and sound this time around, as opposed to the heavily 50’s sound of their first release. Also available is their EP, "Dance With Me", which contains 4 tracks from the 11 track "Reality" album.
