TONE aka Basil Anthony Harewood is a versatile visual artist, composer, writer, arranger, and performer. His warm nature and open approach to collaboration has informed a multitude of independent creative achievements. TONE’s music is simultaneously an enjoyment and cathartic process, invoking honesty and acute emotion. His most profound collaboration to date, with powerful vocalist Farai, sees him “channel Joy Divisions’s youthful rage… imposing chords and roughly hewn drums” (Pitchfork). Contrastingly, he comfortably delves into left-field, electronic pop, with hints of hip-hop and post-punk, and draws on inspiration from Wim Wenders’s ‘Tokyo-Ga’ and ‘Notebook On Cities And Clothes’ in compositions.
