Sonny and Ty’s friendship began while living together in Brooklyn in 2012. Tyler was producing a lot of music at the time while Sonny was developing his artistry playing live throughout the city. It was in 2015 that they decided to combine forces and make an ep. Tyler’s pop sensibilities were brought to the next level with Sonny’s soulful vision and personality. Sonny and Tyler worked tirelessly together to develop a new sound and are currently working out the live show. Bring Me Back The Music is the first single off of their self entitled ep and highlights some of the flaws within the music/entertainment industry. With its dub/trap inspired track and Sonny’s virtuosic vocals, they hope to elevate the genre and it’s expectations.
