Tony Kanal is the bassist and co-writer of the Grammy Award winning rock band No Doubt. Formed in Anaheim, California in 1986, No Doubt earned international acclaim with their multi-platinum albums “Tragic Kingdom” (1995), “Return of Saturn” (2000) and “Rock Steady” (2001), all of which took them touring the world many times over. After their double-platinum greatest hits compilation “The Singles 1992-2003” was released in 2003, Tony delved into producing and writing outside of the band, including working on movie soundtracks and with artists such as Pink, Weezer and Gwen Stefani on her 2004 and 2006 solo albums. No Doubt released their most recent album “Push And Shove” in 2012 and spent 2015 headlining the US festival circuit. Tony has been playing Yamaha basses since he purchased his first BB1600 in 1987.
He is currently in the studio working on a new project with fellow No Doubt bandmates Tom Dumont and Adrian Young as well as A.F.I. singer Davey Havok.
Other Guitar & Bass Artists
Adam Duce is bass player and founding member for US West Coast heavy metal quartet “Machine Head” formed in 1992 with the talents of ex-Vio-Lence guitar players Robert Flynn and Phil Demmel.
A Jazz guitarist, Composer and Educator. Always trying to keep himself inspired in order to express thoughts and feelings that he needs to "share" with other people. He is always interested in new music; however, he wouldn’t characterize himself as an avant-garde composer. He is influenced by the music of East European Composers such as Alfred Schnitke, Sofia Gubaidulina, Andrjey Panufnic and Krzysztof Penderecki, some music of his teacher Nicholas Sackman and mostly from his jazz background as a Jazz Guitarist. In his opinion, it is a Composer’s duty to be in touch with contemporary music, however, one should not be prone to any prejudice or aesthetic cliché as well as the constant stress of being modern. Looking for originality and being always ready to look with a critical eye at his/her accomplishments, the Composer will be able to decode the ‘real’ and the ‘ideal’ that is always necessary for creative composition.
