My self-summary
I'm Stoddard! My name means keeper of horses. Explains why I love animals.

I'm a singer/songwriter/pianist/improviser. I teach music to kids by day, play shows by night, and occasionally, piano bars by dawn (Brandy's on the UES). I have a Podcast called The Stodcast, which is basically a show with musical interviews, improvised stories and songs.
Also, I desperately wish I had a dog, ocean runs in my blood, and I have 13 senses of humor.
I'm a humanist. Used to identify as an atheist but I decided I didn't want to define myself with the negative of something I find irrational. The idea of "a God". Doesn't sit right with me. We are "God". Everything around us. The universe. Not some outside, irrational, supernatural force!
Also, Astrology rubs me wrong. I believe that it is "month-ist". Unless it's just for fun. ONLY then will I enjoy it.
I have an E.P. out and I'm currently working on a song cycle (a la Last Five Years).
