2012 SXSW Flashback: Todd Snider

Dave DiMartino

One of the most talented and adept singer-songwriters out there working, blending humor, pathos and superb musicianship, Todd Snider is a wonder to behold.

At this year's South by Southwest music conference, ostensibly to promote his latest album Agnostic Hymns & Stoner Fables, the East Nashville-based Snider stopped by Y! Music's makeshift recording studio and proceeded to delight the entire crew both with his delightful performance as well as the warmth and personal candor displayed during his ensuing interview.

Snider's skills have long been evidenced by his consistently wonderful, occasionally deliciously quirky albums, but for those who haven't managed to catch a peek of him until now-you're in for a serious treat.
