Todd picked up the guitar at seventeen and literally days later played his first show. Disabilties that were once thought of as huge challenges are now considered amazing gifts. Todd plays from his soul, he has little or no knowledge of formal music training, Todd sees colors while playing and these colors take him on a journey with each and every song. Todd started playing harmonica at nine much the same way he did the guitar. Todd said he could feel the music, Big Bo McGee an Alabama blues legend bestowed the name Mojo Child , hence the band name Todd Simpson and Mojo Child.

HOPE FROM A DOWNFALL was inspired by difficult times that each of the members have had to confront throughout life. Everyone can relate to difficult times. However, when there is hope, there is a better tomorrow. The meaning is strong and uplifting no matter what the circumstances are. The band is comprised of four members which includes Jake at rhythm guitar, Alx handling lead guitar and vocals, ...Alex playing bass, and Adam rocking the drums. At one point or another it seems all members have played with each other in different groups. Some how they all ended up in the same band almost as if it were fate. Currently the band resides out of Fultondale which is just a mile North of the Birmingham city limit. The music being produced from these talented musicians is something you can feel and relate to. There is something for everyone in this new variety of music which is sure to leave you wanting more!
