Music serves as the timeless conduit that unites us all. For Todd Green, executive director of Tomorrow’s Voices Foundation and dedicated music enthusiast, his love for music transcends mere admiration.

With an extensive collection of records and countless concert experiences under his belt, Todd now embarks on a new venture as a singer-songwriter, adding another dimension to his musical journey.

At the core of Todd Green’s musical journey is Tomorrow’s Voices Foundation, a charitable children’s choir he established in 2017. With a passion for nurturing young talent, Todd founded the organization to provide aspiring singers across Canada with a platform to showcase their voices. Today, the foundation operates in six cities and three provinces, impacting the lives of over 200 children.

Surrounded by so many young talents, the Niagara-on-the-Lake native found inspiration in their vibrant energy to start his own path. Fueled by his diverse musical influences and bolstered by his extensive experience, Todd’s journey into songwriting began with a profound desire to share his own stories and experiences. To kick-start, the singer just released his first single “Fiver Years Later,” a heartfelt reflection on loss and the journey towards acceptance.

“It’s also about thinking of what you would say to people you have lost if you had a second chance to do so,” he explained. Inspired by his own experience of loss, particularly the passing of his former stepson, Todd delicately navigates the delicate balance between sorrow and healing.

He shares heartfelt reflections, offering a glimpse into the profound impact of loss while honoring the memories that continue to shape his journey.

“The song was part of the process I have been going through since he [his stepson] passed away, and I was finally able to put into words what I have been thinking since I found out he had passed,” Todd said.

Through gentle melodies and introspective lyrics, Todd invites listeners to join him on a journey of remembrance and reconciliation. The song serves as a tribute to his stepson and a testament to the enduring power of love and resilience in the face of tragedy.

As Todd embarks on this new chapter in his musical journey, he remains grounded by his family, including his wife and young son, Liam, who stands as his steadfast supporter and greatest inspiration. Looking ahead, Todd anticipates the release of a five-song EP, featuring collaborations with the talented young members of Tomorrow’s Voices Foundation.

Beyond his musical endeavors, Todd’s academic pursuits as a marketing professor at Brock University intersect seamlessly with his passion for music. His ongoing research projects delve into music consumption and the intricacies of the music industry, offering invaluable insights into the cultural landscape of Canada.

“Five Years Later” is more than a song; it’s a testament to the power of music to heal, console, and connect us across time and space.
