Mini Bio (1)

Born December 5, 1969 in Lanigan, Saskatchewan, Canada.

In the 80s he started playing with a band called "The Wicked Infants", a cover band who played a few original tunes. After The Wicked Infants, he joined a cover band called "Bladerunner", which didn't really amount to anything.

In 1989, Kerns moved to Calgary and started writing songs. Todd Kerns and brother John Kerns joined with another set of brothers, Kurt and Ryan Dahle, to form "Electric", originally playing a lot of LA glam 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, they changed their 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 in 1995, the 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'.

In 1997, Kerns starred in the independent film "Horsey", which saw little critical support. The Age of Electric song 'Remote Control' gained heavy airplay and would become the band's biggest radio hit.

In March 1998, Age of Electric was nominated for "Best New Group" at the Juno Awards.

The Dahle brothers formed Limblifter, and Age of Electric fell dormant in 1998, but went on tour with Canadian stars Our Lady Peace in 1999.

After the dissolution of Age of Electric, Kerns started a number of his own projects. In addition to Todd Kerns Odyssey (TKO), Kerns formed the group Static In Stereo with brother - and fellow AOE member - John Kerns, younger brother Ryan Kerns, and drummer Scott MacCargar. They released a self-titled album in 2002.
