Buzzy Tonic

Buzzy Tonic is my home studio project and virtual band, a vehicle for my songwriting, musical exploration and artistic expression. The sound is mainly rock with strong influences of jazz, prog, funk and soul, and elements of metal, dance, pop and electronica. I have four completed studio albums, with more on the way.

I write most of the songs, record, arrange and produce, and play most of the instruments including vocals, piano and synthesizers, sax, bass, guitar and drums. From time to time I'll bring in guest musicians to help expand the palette of sounds and styles, and sometimes I'll cover or interpret a song written by or with friends and collaborators. Someday I hope to put together a live band to play these songs.
