Six Top 10 singles. Over 4 million records sold. Grammy nominations, platinum albums, numerous awards and hit songs around the world, plus the #1 most-played rock song of 1998. Tonic was a musical powerhouse, merging the raw honesty of rock to unabashed melody…and ushering rock n roll into a new millennium.
Singer and guitarist Emerson Hart founded Tonic with guitarist Jeff Russo – a childhood friend – adding bassist Dan Lavery shortly after inception. After storming the charts with debut album Lemon Parade and its monster hit “If You Could Only See,” the band released two additional studio albums (Sugar and Head On Straight) as well as a live EP, Live & Enhanced. They’ve been featured on a number of soundtracks, including the lead single from “American Pie” (“You Wanted More”). In 2009 Tonic released a Greatest Hits CD/DVD package.
In May 2010 Tonic released a self-titled album, their first new studio album in almost eight years. You can download "Daffodil" from that album here on Brite as well as an acoustic version of "If You Can Only See" from Live & Enhanced which is only available on Tonic's website.
