A wonderful read for the artist in all of us - Ted Stilles on 'an odd boy'

It’s not about ‘worth it’ or ‘not worth it’ when you have a dream. If you want to be an Artist, you’ve got to go with your dream – or it’s just a daydream.” — Doc Togden.

Truer words have never been spoken. Doc takes the reader inside the heart and soul of the young creative in a way that at once reveals the relentless pull that takes some of us to heights unimaginable in a world set on conformity. We may be few and far between but he reminds us we are not alone. A wonderful read for the artist in all of us.

— Ted Stilles

Ted Stilles is an American born blues guitarist from Montclair, NJ who was a part of the New York City blues scene in the early ‘70s. His first blues recordings were on the Spivey Records label. He has performed with such blues legends as Willie Dixon, Muddy Waters, and Johnny Winter. In the ‘80s he spent time with Blue Note recording artist Big John Patton. There’s a passion and subtlety to his playing that connect with audiences large and small.
