Todd George Fancey is a Canadian guitarist, keyboardist, and solo artist. He is most widely known as the guitarist for Vancouver-based indie rock band The New Pornographers and the bassist for the band Limblifter. Fancey is originally from Nova Scotia.[1]

Solo career[edit]

Fancey released his first solo album, Fancey on March Records in 2004 followed by an EP The Magical Summer. Also in 2004, Fancey appeared in the documentary Better Off in Bed with The New Pornographers and The Gay. His second solo album, Schmancey, was released November 13, 2007 on What Are Records?.

In early January 2008, Fancey announced via a Myspace blog post that he had already begun work on another album, due to come out in 2009. In July 2009, Fancey announced via Twitter that album was finished, and that the 1st single from the album, "All My Friends," was released via his site, fancey.org, as well as most digital outlets. A video for "All My Friends" became available in January 2010.

Television[edit]

In 2008, Fancey participated off screen in an episode of The Office entitled "Dinner Party". He portrayed Hunter (usually portrayed by Nicholas D'Agosto), Jan's administrative assistant who may have lost his virginity to her and wrote a song about it, although the storyline never revealed any evidence of such. The song, called 'That One Night," was co-written by Fancey, Gene Stupnitsky and Lee Eisenberg. The episode was nominated for an Emmy Award.

In the fall of 2010 NBC hired Todd to write a song that was featured on NBC's Prime Time Special. Fancey is currently working on a new solo record to be released sometime in 2011. Fancey was also hired to create music for Caprica, the Battlestar Galactica TV show prequel.[citation needed]
