Addie Tonic is an alterna-rock band formed in Denver, CO. Founding members Meghann5k and Matt Youngblood spent the last 4 years touring small venues under various names and with several lineup changes before deciding on “Addie Tonic” in 2020. After a series of singles released by Indie On Air Records, the band released their debut EP, “Crashin’ Cars & Fannin’ Flames” in 2021.
Addie Tonic features frontwoman Meghann5k (Vocals, Guitar) and Matt Youngblood (Lead Guitar, Vocals) as a duo plus they also perform as a 4-piece electric rock band. Previously, the band has shared festival billings with the likes of national acts such as The Unlikely Candidates, CITRA, Wildermiss, Jerry Joseph and the Jackmormons, The Dirty Dozen Brass Band, and JoJo Hermann’s (Widespread Panic) side project, Slim Wednesday.
Matt’s Minneapolis punk rock roots perfectly compliment Meghann’s Athens, GA infused songwriting style and jangly rhythm guitar, blending to create a garage rock/shoegaze wall of guitar sound with a punk rock edge. Their sound is somewhere between the melancholy dreaminess of Mazzy Star and the alternative rock style of Courtney Barnett.
Meghann and Matt spent the better part of 2020 going through a serious rebrand and streaming their duo act relentlessly, adding new songs every week and proving their unbridled passion and commitment to the music. The current full-band lineup includes Dylan Tilton (Bass), and Lionel “Bud” Lucchesi III (Drums).
Addie Tonic will be hitting the road all across America armed with new music (recorded with Todd Divel of Silo Sounds in Denver). This band is ready to share their new exciting sound which will soon be available everywhere your ears might take you. Addie Tonic delivers the dynamic alt-rock you need!
