Our Beginnings

We started our journey in 1996 as a publishing company for the Matrix record label upon their launch of the artist Mon a Q and her global hit single “Stay in Love”. The focus of Tone 1 at that time was EDM/Dance related music. We then continued to evolve and transitioned into a complete dance oriented record label representing exceptional artists like Daphne Rose, Tara Z, FRONT, and of course Mon a Q.

Our Direction

TONE 1 MUSIC has now embarked on yet another journey with the expansion of genres into Smooth Jazz and other related areas. We are very proud to transition and now include Smooth Jazz with Grammy nominee Josh Pinkham as our featured artist. Josh is bringing a new sound to the genre through his virtuosity performances on the Tenor Guitar.

Tone 1 Music is excited to continue to discover and represent new and upcoming artists, bringing new sounds and creative expressions of music to the masses. Look for our artists and their releases on all major digital distribution sites, as well as on a variety of radio broadcasts.
