The album is the brainchild of Echo In The Canyon renowned producer/multi-instrumentalist Fernando Perdomo. Says Perdomo: “Something/Anything? is the classic Todd Rundgren album. Equal parts commercial and eclectic, it’s considered a quirky masterpiece in the same way as The Beach Boys’ Pet Sounds and Big Star Third. And it’s still turning heads today. It was just listed as one of the top 40 singer-songwriter records by ultimateclassicrock.com.”
