Sonic Hero

Riot V vocalist Todd Michael Hall gained National attention as a contestant on Season 18 of The Voice. His version of Foreigner’s “Jukebox Hero” has over 4 million views on YouTube. Although Todd didn’t make it to the end, he decided to strike while his Hard Rock iron was hot. Together with Rat Pak Records and Metal Church’s Kurdt Vanderhoof, Hall released Sonic Healing. The album has been praised for its modern take on classic ’70s Rock radio. I had the chance to speak with Todd prior to the record’s release.
