Out on Secret Sun Recordings
"Time is a Healer", Todd's first solo songs record in 8 years. Produced by Jesse Harris, recorded in Leon, Guanajuato, Mexico.
For his Secret Sun release “Time is a Healer” Todd returns to his voice as singer/songwriter, offering a collection of 10 pieces that run deep into introspection and new love. “Whole Bunch of Drugs”, featuring indie hero Tōth, recounts the trials of maintaining sobriety while songs like “So Far From God, So Close to the USA” find Clouser reflecting on his adopted Mexico City home. The final track, “On Our Own” sees Todd “waiting out the waves to make you my man”, illuminating what this record was all along - a love story. “Time is a Healer” was produced by Jesse Harris (Norah Jones, Willie Nelson) and recorded in Testa Studio in Leon, Guanajuato, Mexico.
