Captain RW started his career in music in a way many other musicians and singers have, in a religious setting, where he was musical director of a 153
radio station network “The World Crusade For Christ” at the very young age of 18. This became invaluable to him later as he also helped produce edit and
reproduce the show which was heard around the world.
From there he worked night clubs in 44 states and Canada with his show “The Roy Todd Show”. He was also featured for about a year on a live show from
“Top of 230” in Clayton, Missouri. This was carried by the local “NBC” station and called the “What’s Happening Show”. His night club act was carried
across the country by “ACA”, and run in many, many top clubs such as the “NorthWest” at “Disney” in Florida.
Nashville’s eye caught one of his songs “Turn Around”, which was recorded by the late Pete Drake at “Music City Recorders Studio”, and published by
“Window Music Publishers” of Nashville, TN. The song hit the “Billboard” charts as #4 on their pick hits for two weeks. He has also recorded at “Sigma
Studio” and “Future Gold” in Philadelphia, accompanied by sections of the “Philadelphia Philharmonic”.
He has defined his own sound for years, and sometimes this is hard to reproduce with other musicians, so he decided to do all of his own music, as he
plays a number of instruments fluently. All the songs you will hear in this album are written, arranged, and produced by him. He also sang all the vocals.
His companies digitally recorded all the music also.
His range, in types of music, cover Pop, Country, Jazz, Insperational, Rock, Vegas Show Style,and Blues. You will hear a little of the different types in this
album if you listen closely. Many producers do not like to mix music on an album. This was another reason to produce his own music. There is a lot of
drama in his music, and some of the years spent doing live stage shows comes out in many of the break comments. He most definitely gets into and feels
He presently also owns and captains his own Offshore Sportfishing Charter service in the Gulf of Mexico out of Bradenton, Florida USA called “Happy
Hooker One Charters”, a dream of his for years, and he has a deep love of the open blue sea.
Other albums planned for release next season is a Jazz album, and one he has already recorded and loves, but not released yet, a portrayal or his version
of the music of the great giants of the older music industry from the thrities and forties. The music is so rich and brings back many memories to many
