If you’re into the alt-rock of the 90s, you probably remember a band from LA called Tonic. They had quite a bit of success with Lemon Parade album, which was released in 1996. It featured a couple of big hits on alt-rock radio including “If You Could Only See” and “Open Up Your Eyes.”
But that was Tonic at the peak of their powers. They broke up in 2004 and then reunited for occasional gigs and recordings in 2008. But let’s focus on guitarist Jeff Russo.
He moved into scoring television and movies. If you’ve ever watched the series Fargo, that’s Jeff’s work. He was even nominated for an Emmy. And then he fluked into a gig writing music for the new Star Trek iterations including Picard. He’s now orchestrating big productions.
It just goes to show you that there can be life after being in a band. For more on Jeff, go here.
