Many San Diego reggae fans will know Jonny Tarr as the the sax player in that fabulous horn section from Shoreline Rootz, however there is another side to Jonny that is emerging in the scene: Jonny’s solo act. And when I say solo, I mean just him, by himself. Jonny has mastered the loop pedal and can show up at a moment’s notice, and deliver a full sound with drum beats, keyboards, guitar, and of course the sax.
Originally from Cardiff, Wales, Jonny Tarr picked up the saxophone at the age of 11 thinking it would get him girls. After cutting his teeth in the British Jazz scene, he studied music at Paul McCartney’s Liverpool Institute for the Performing Arts and went on to play all over Europe, and as far Japan and the US over the next decade. Now a permanent resident of the United States, Jonny Tarr has been working on making Electro-Acoustic Soul music. Playing at San Diego’s clubs and music venues, Jonny has been refining his sound and is now ready to take it further. With debut album ‘Move Yourself’ available on i-tunes and all other quality digital platforms, it is now time to take his solo multi-instrumental act into the publc domain. Having played and recorded with the likes of The Nextmen, The Part Time Heroes, Backini and Flevans in the UK, Jonny’s pedigree and reputation as a musician of quality and dependence precedes him.
