Todd Fancey is the guitarist for the band The New Pornographers. He has released two albums on the What Are Records label under the name Fancey, an eponymous debut in 2004 and a followup entitled Shmancey in October 2007. He is from Vancouver CA and describes his music as "soft rock that rocks". Soft rock, dirty words? No, not anymore. With the popularity of Phoenix, Postal Service, and Kings of Convenience, indie rock's angry core has become kinder and gentler, at least on first listen.
