"Hot Toddy" is the solo moniker for Chris Todd, better known for my work with Crazy P formerly known as Crazy Penis, but has been writing music under the name of Hot Toddy since around 1998. His first releases were on the Nottingham based label Neon Heights and on the Manchester based label, Paperecordings (the album "Super Magic", in 2001). As Crazy P (at that time Crazy Penis) began to tour the world with their acclaimed live show – of which Toddy is of course one of the arrangers and guitarist, Hot Toddy work had to take a somewhat of a backseat, but releases still emerged on Nottingham’s excellent Winding Road label.

After Crazy P’s triumphant last album Stop Space Return, and the susbsequent touring that came with it, was finished, the studio beckoned once again, and Toddy emerged earlier in 2010 with his second album ‘Late Night Boogie’ on San Francisco label Om Records sister label Smoke and Mirrors. A gorgeous stew of all his styles, it featured Crazy P’s Danielle Moore and Jennifer Rhonwen on vocals, and sweetly dove tailed the sounds of balearica, soul, boogie, disco, and the kind of slow burning house that Toddy and Crazy P have made their own. Eskimo Records loved the superb ‘I Need Love’ (featuring a rare lead vocal from Crazy P production partner Ron Basejam) that they swiftly licensed and got Morgan Geist in on the remix.

Approaching the end of 2010, and Hot Toddy is now in demand as a remixer, with his takes of Joey Negro, Mousse T, Lovebirds, and his gorgeous version of Crazy P’s ‘Never Gonna Reach Me’ getting props and plays from the likes of The Revenge, Tom Middleton, Pete Tong, King Britt, Tim Sweeney, Tensnake, and Jamie Jones, and Wolf and Lamb. And Chris himself has done some outstanding remixes for the likes of Lovebirds, Fred Everything, Novika, Joey Negro, J Boogie's Dubtronic Science, Shiny Objects, Alain Ho.

2. Hot Toddy is an acoustic roots, jazz and blues trio from Fredericton, New Brunswick in Atlantic Canada consisting of Joel Leblanc, Tom Easley and Thom Swift.
