Tornado Alley

 Island Songwriters Showcase members Sonny Speed, Tim Huss and Vincent Crici, three singer-songwriters with very distinct musical personalities, decided to join forces with percussionist Robert Langley and form Tornado Alley. As their distinctive styles merged into a unified sound, an experiment in original American roots music was born.

 hey are an acoustic revival band with sumptuous vocal harmonies on their diverse original compositions.

he members of Tornado Alley challenge themselves to write all original material that reflects the many genres of roots music: bluegrass, country, gospel, traditional blues and folk idioms found in California, New England and the Texas plains. A signature of Tornado Alley’s sound is their emphasis of three- and four-part harmonies, coupled with up-tempo energy and universal appeal. The Tornado Alley line-up is also adept at seamlessly switching instruments and roles: Vincent Crici on vocals, guitar, bass and mandolin; Tim Huss on vocals, guitar and bass; Robert Langley on percussion and backing vocals; Sonny Speed on vocals, guitar, mandolin bass, harmonica and melodica. Tornado Alley has just finished recording its first CD and will release it very soon.
