Presenting album number three of four, ‘Shadowlight’ by Ted Yoder. This instrumental release showcases the symphonic side of the Ted Yoder Band. The album was designed to capture the nostalgic emotion of winter and the holidays; celebrating the bond between loved ones and winter traditions. ”…bringing light into your everyday situation through music.” – Ted Yoder

[Definition: Shadowlight – ‘A metaphorical concept; a shadow produced by the projection of light rather than the absence of it. Associated with a person bringing their light, their positivity, into a dour environment.’ – Urban Dictionary] 

Yoder enlisted the talents of additional musicians such as Doug Haag (percussion), Sarah Haag (marimba), Toby Hazlett (bass), Mana Music String Quartet, and String Composer – Michael Thomas Foumai. Recorded, mixed, and produced at Incognito by Nathan Butler/Nimble Wit Productions, Co-Producer Donna Yoder, Mastered at The Bakery by Grammy-winning Eric Boulanger (LaLa Land). Album cover art by Cheri Freund/Graphic design by Bryan Chris.

The pivotal career moment for this barefooted dulcimer musician was the dulcimer cover of Tears For Fears – Everybody Wants To Rule The World – one of the most-watched FaceBook Live posts in 2016 with 101+ million views and 330k+ followers/music fans around the world.

Having played the hammered dulcimer for decades (National Hammered Dulcimer Champion – 2010), Yoder has the ability to bring an ancient wooden stringed instrument into the 21st century by emulating a variety of genres. Producing a unique crossover which satisfies and retains a mass market appeal. Ted has toured 6 well-received albums and 6 EP/Singles. Whether touring with the band or streaming live performances, to offering online dulcimer courses, Yoder is committed to his passion and high standards of music production and continues to be involved with music licensing opportunities to various industries around the globe. Future performances TBA for 2021.
