As a prime mover on New York's downtown "No Wave" scene in the early 1980's, Tomás Doncker cut his teeth as a guitarist with such genre-busting groups as James Chance & The Contortions, Defunkt, J. Walter Negro & The Loose Jointz and many more. Eventually he went international, touring and recording in Japan with jazz pianist Masabumi Kikuchi, and producing studio and songwriting sessions with Boosty Collins, Yoko Ono, Grammy nominated Reggae vocal group The Itals, and Grammy-winning producer Prince Charles Alexander. Since then, Doncker has continued to work with an A-list of iconic artists including Ivan Neville, Bonnie Raitt, Meshell Ndegeocello, Living Colour lead singer Corey Glover, former P-Funk keyboardist Amp Fiddler, and 2013 Grammy award nominee Shamekia Copeland.
Now, fresh off triumphant performances in China, and a collaboration with Pulitzer Prize winner Yusef Komunyakaa Doncker has put out his most important and memorable album to date Mess We Made. Dealing with race relations in America, Doncker fearlessly calls out the bullshit of the system and provides a path forward through the struggle. With a fiery live show to accompany this stormy record Doncker is preparing to criss-cross the nation with an exciting live band who seem destined to change the world.
