    Tonic, a Los Angeles based band plays melodic, alternapop music, that was clearly influenced by late 70's rock and early 80's new wave. Frontman Emerson Hart and lead guitarist Jeff Russo, (A childhood friend) both east coast transplants, formed Tonic in Los Angeles in 1994 also with bassiest Dan Lavery and drummer Kevin Shepard.

    Emerson Hart was raised in New Jersey; he met New Yorker Jeff Russo at a Pool Hall in Los Angeles. Emerson Hart and Jeff Russo then hooked up with Dan Lavery and Kevin Shepard at the Hollywood, California hot spot 'Canter's Kibbitz Room' (A place were bands such as 'The Wallflowers' would go for a pre-record-deal.) The four formed the band calling themselfs Tonic - a music-theory reference to the root in a series of chords. They began their frequent touring which helped them land a record deal with Polydor.
