Jeff Russo began his profession with Los Angeles-based adult alternative rockers Tonic. Russo shifted to L.A. in 1990 and shaped Tonic along with his friend Emerson Hart. That they had a hit correct from the package with 1996’s Lemon Parade, which spawned the irrepressible singles “IN THE EVENT THAT YOU Could Only Discover” and “START Your Eye.” Parade proceeded to go platinum and setup the discharge of 1999’s Sugars. Tonic’s third recording, 2002’s At once Right, received two Grammy nominations. The music group was an excellent display for Russo’s acoustic guitar function and songwriting, but by 2004 he was branching out. With function carrying on on his single recording — which he was composing and playing in its entirety — the multifaceted Russo had written a ballet, had written music for advertisements, and got involved with producing.
