Guitarist, poet, songwriter, Mexico City resident Todd Clouser, a genre-defying voice on the international creative music scene, sets out on a first of its kind tour across Asia, Europe, and the Americas performing the music of late great Captain Beefheart and his own music in intimate settings. The Clouser concert is a look into the mind of a young artist creating a legacy all his own in music’s history of evolution, though this time Clouser does so by looking back to carry us forward in a moving tribute to one of his heroes. “Captain Beefheart was of course unique and provocative and a character, but there is something heavier in his embrace of the surreal. Its the pulling of the curtain to reveal the circus we all know we live in“ says Clouser.
Through song and unique arrangements of the Beefheart catalog, his own music, Todd Clouser creates an unforgettable and color shouting show marked by his signature guitar work and bare-heart storytelling. Clouser’s experience as an artist, traveling the world and performing in venues from NYC Winter Jazzfest to his adopted Mexico City home’s rock festival giant Vive Latino, has birthed a voice that has found references in critics from Tom Waits to Marc Ribot to Lou Reed with New York City’s Downtown Music Gallery hailing Clouser’s Man With No Country record (Amulet Records, 2014) as “the anomalous punk rock song record of the year (decade?) …. unbelievable, you’ve never heard anything like this”.
