New Orleans born and bred musicians, John Michael Rouchell (vocals and guitar) and Alvin Ford Jr. (drums, percussion, vocals) crossed paths by chance at NOLA’s famed Jazzfest Gala. Discovering their shared obsession with 80’s pop/R&B, modern hip-hop/R&B and 1950’s noir film aesthetics, John Michael, formerly of the 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 TYSSON. A group whose name aims 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.
