Album Notes
Gripping songwriting, meaningful lyrics, and a strangely optimistic melancholy are at the heart of Brendan McDonough’s, Tonic.

An ecclectic, Americana rock album capable of moving between moods and styles seamlessly, Tonic is as pure and emotional as it gets. Recorded in the legendary Levon Helm Studios under Levon Helm’s watchful eye, Brendan McDonough’s first solo effort, Tonic is stunning.

With thick layers of instrumentation fronted by McDonough’s worn voice and an ear for sophisticated pop poignancy, McDonough is able to combine the culmination of his influences after years of working on the production side with artists like: Levon Helm, The Black Crowes, David Bromberg, and Doyle Bramhall II just to name a few. Brendan has numerous engineering credits to his name and Co-Produced Levon Helm’s final live album “Midnight Ramble Sessions Vol. 3” with veteran multi-instrumentalist and producer Larry Campbell. All while crafting a tightly produced, hook-laden rock album appealing to rock, folk, Americana and pop fans alike.

The record has powerful open tuned guitar riff rockers, tender fingerpicked ballads, and a whole lot of shades in between.

The band is made up of long time collaborators Craig Santiago, Andrew Shober and Ras T Ashebar. Many featured guests from his years on the road appear on the album including: Grammy winners Larry Campbell, Amy Helm, Justin Guip, and music royalty like Howard Johnson, Jim Weider, Clark Gayton, Barry Danielian, Clip Payne, Chris Castle and Martha Scanlan. This album is an outstanding first release from Beacon, NY’s Brendan McDonough, slated to drop on August 25th, 2017. © Brendan McDonough Music 2017
