Ric’s debut solo EP, Drawing Lines, is set to drop nationwide on November 1.
The record was produced by sought-after, independent producer J. Hall and includes an appearance by Facedown recording artist Shane Ochsner, leader of the critically acclaimed band, Everything in Slow Motion. “Ric Todd is a multi-platform endeavor,” explained Kinney, “we expect to be successful in publishing, licensing, merchandising, touring, literally every side of the music business, but our focus right now is clearly on Drawing Lines.” The first single will be “Red Letter,” and the video for the song is currently in post-production.
