With his acclaimed 2020 EP Whispers in the Dark, Tonner stepped out from behind the scenes and into the limelight. After producing and touring with dozens of artists over nearly 10 years, Tonner finally established himself as an artist in his own right. “As a producer, I simply focus on helping an artist make music that they want to hear,” says Tonner. “That’s exactly what I’m out to do with my songs. I wouldn’t release anything unless it feels 100% real to me.”
In between his continuing work as a full time member of TikTok indie breakout band The 502s, Tonner spent the last couple years trickling out new solo songs and videos at a regular clip. These songs will culminate in his first full length album, Walls Come Down, taking both his sound and his songwriting into new territory. “Things were already crazy in 2020 but Whispers was mostly me writing about my own life,” he comments. “There’s still some of that, but this time I’ve got a lot more to say about everything going on outside my four walls.” Now he is back with the first single off of the aforementioned LP via “Volcano”. The indie-pop jam is a hybrid infused track that highlights his versatility and is well worth the listen! Tonner’s album Walls Come Down is due out in September 2022, and will feature the “Volcano” and more music. Keep your eyes on Tonner!
