The history of music has always been a history of fusion. Hip hop and blues – two of the great American art forms – both came out of a mix of musical styles and cultures.So it is with the insanely talented Alex Tintinalli, aka A.TNT, aka the driving force behind the most exciting band to hit the airwaves in years – Pocket City. A.TNT is an R&B musician almost beyond compare on the modern scene, yet Pocket City is an incendiary tour de force of hip hop, funk and jazz that will have them packing the dance floors from Toronto to Rio.
This five-piece band, straight out of Ontario, is on the cusp of releasing its debut EP – the anonymously titled ‘Pocket City’ – and it’s set to be one of the most exciting debut offerings of this or any year. That’s because, as has been proven by Pocket City’s incredible live shows that have been winning it a fan base across the continent, this isn’t your average rap offering.
