Description

 Music is in his blood. Fusing the folk styles of his family heritage with contemporary rock ‘n’ roll, Tao Rodriguez-Seeger ’s music breaks all barriers of traditional folk bringing a unique and distinctive sound to the table.

 

Born into a musical family in Poughkeepsie, New York, Tao is the eldest grandchild of folk singer Pete Seeger. Tao spent his childhood in Nicaragua where his father was a war correspondent, making documentary films about the Sandinista revolution. With little access to pop music in Nicaragua, Tao cherished his AC/DC and Metallica cassettes along with the two tapes he had of his grandfather’s music. Here began the merging of rock and folk music that would come to influence Tao in his musical career.
