Biography

Todd Kerns (born December 5, 1969 in Lanigan, Saskatchewan, Canada) is a Canadian musician who has worked with several successful Canadian bands, most notably Age of Electric.

In the 1980’s Kerns started playing with a band called The Wicked Infants, a cover band who played a few original tunes. After The Wicked Infants, he joined another cover band named Bladerunner, which didn’t really amount to anything.

In 1989, Kerns moved to Calgary, Alberta and started writing songs. Todd and his brother John Kerns joined with another set of brothers, Kurt and Ryan Dahle, to form a band named Electric, originally playing a lot of LA glam rock-era covers. At gigs, they sold a 5-song cassette entitled ‘Electric’ and an album called ‘The Latest Plague’ under the Gods Teeth Ethel! label. Later on, the band changed its name to Age of Electric.

In 1994, the band released the ‘Ugly’ EP, which sold well independently. The group gave Cargo the rights to distribute the EP, and its title track debuted on the Canadian Album Charts at #73. Invasion Group Management helped with the promtion of the album, and got ‘Ugly’ video airplay on Muchmusic. No major label deal was in sight, so the group decided to continue and release an independent LP called ‘Untitled’.

After performing at Music West in Vancouver, British Columbia in 1995, Age of Electric group got signed to Mercury records, and re-released ‘Untitled’ as The Age of Electric. They won a Canadian Rock Award for ‘Best West Coast Independent Artist’.
