This premiere bassist calls his songwriting style "Prejippie Jazz". It's a
blend of funk, contemporary jazz, dance, rock and new age. His songs are
pleasantly surprising for those who enjoy hooky instrumentals.
Hailing from Las Vegas, Nevada, Tony was drawn to the bass. From the time he
could hold the instrument, he knew that playing the bass and writing music
were his calling. Now, he is happy to be able to share his love for his music
with the world.
Tony Webb's debut CD was 1996's "Daybreak" album, a smooth prejippie jazz collection. In 1997, the Webbed man released the "Webbslinger" album, a sticky mix of prejippie jazz, rock and straight up funk. Tony's latest CD was inspired by the birth of his son (and is called "Dirty Diapers"). For this album, Tony Webb decided to literally get back to basics. Armed with a drum machine and his four-string Fender jazz bass, he spun a Webb of 14 songs that allowed him to sling his Webb through a variety of styles.In addition to Tony's solo work he has performed on various recordings by other Detroit area artist and has numerous production and songwriting credits.
