«They laid down thick slices of good dirty funk driven by two bass players that instantly warmed up the crowd....If you want to go out to have a good time and shake a tail feather, you can’t lose with this band….they play oceans of deep funk.» SF SONIC (The Independent 12/15)
Best damn Funkadelic music I’ve heard in ten years. Yes, I’m putting it that straight and clear, kids. As a lifelong funkonaut – my first P-Funk show was Funk On The Green in 1979 in Oakland (age 12) — Dennis Cook (JamBase 2015)
In the last few years, Tommy Alexander has emerged as a modern-age DIY trailblazer. The 31-year-old songsmith started writing songs and playing guitar in his early twenties after his parents bought him a fender acoustic. Alexander had just dropped out of college and quit baseball.
Alexander recalls hoping the record would be a step towards forming a band. «The idea was that the album would manifest a band. I figured if I could get a more full, rounded out sound it would be easier to put a group together.» As the band progressed and sound evolved, in the winter of 2016, Ty-Alex was formed. A modern-rock outfit with folk roots. Ty-Alex is Tommy Alexander, Adam Witkowski, Ian Wade, and Django Koenig.
The sound has been over and over again hailed unique and hard to pinpoint. Praised as infectious, the music is palatable, powerful, and honest.
