Jonny Tarr has been working on making electronic soul music in many formats, whether singing his own material or classics with a selection of instruments (guitar, synth, sax, flute, vocals, loop station, samples), blowing sax over the DJ or leading a full band. Originally from Cardiff, Wales, Tarr now lives in San Diego.
An album called The Jonny Tarr Quintet: Live at Studio West was recorded at San Diego's Studio West and released in early 2020, during the pandemic shutdown. "During lockdown, we have properly mixed and mastered it," said Tarr.
His first fully self-produced album The Rules was released in summer 2022 via local Pacific Records.
