TYSSON Releases New Single/Video “Bigger”‏

New Orleans alt-pop duo TYSSON has released their debut single/video “Bigger,” which premiered via All Things GoPRESS HERE to watch the video which features a betrayed femme fatale and her ill-fated lover. Driven by arresting vocals, epic percussion, and an explosive chorus, the single is the first taste of the duo’s eclectic, 4-song, self-titled EP out September 2016.

Despite having both been born and raised in the close-knit New Orleans music scene, John Michael Rouchell (vocals and guitar) and Alvin Ford Jr. (drums, percussion, vocals) had not yet crossed paths until a chance meeting at NOLA’s famed Jazzfest Gala. It was then when they discovered their shared obsession with 80’s pop/R&B, modern hip-hop/R&B and 1950’s noir film aesthetics which they both liked to incorporate into their music. Together John Michael, coming from his band MyNameIsJohnMichael, and Alvin, an in-demand session and live drummer (Pretty Lights, Dumpstaphunk, Dr. John, Dirty Dozen Brass Band), pulled from their past experiences to create a sound that was both unique and progressive. And thus, TYSSON was born – a name to provoke evocation in deference to Cicely the accomplished actress and Miles Davis muse, and the boxer Mike, the tough exterior covering a fragile and broken core.

TYSSON Tour Dates:

July 25                 Nashville, TN @ Basement East – FREE SHOW

August 10           Los Angeles, CA @ Hotel Cafe
