Todd Brant

 Todd was born in Martinsburg, WV surrounded by a heavy influence of folk music and classic rock from his parents that transcended into his interest in heavy metal and rock. At the age of 16, he decided to pursue the guitar as his primary instrument.  He moved to Los Angeles at the age of 20 and enrolled in The Guitar Institute of Technology (GIT) to continue studying.  Playing the major clubs of the LA scene (Gazzari's, The Troubadour, Whiskey a Go-Go and FM Station to name a few), his passion for live performance grew.  Todd has taught privately for over 20 years and has opened or shared the stage with such notable acts as Quiet Riot, The Gin Blossoms, Sugarland, Toby Keith, Blake Shelton, Jason Aldean,  Phil Vassar, Craig Morgan and Neil McCoy.  For the past 14 years, Todd has been playing the acoustic guitar for a country-rock band called Joe Patrick and Four on the Floor.  He also plays the electric guitar in a 3 piece classic rock band called KGB (Kweder-Gercak-Brant).
