Tutu Sweeney & The Brothers Band
Born and raised on the sunny beach of Venice, California, most of Tutu Sweeney’s toys happened to be musical instruments. Surrounded by a thriving and artistic community, he was very fortunate to submerge himself in different sounds from all genres.
Tutu practiced and studied trumpet through his teenage years and believed being a jazz musician was his destiny. When he discovered the art of songwriting, his world turned upside down.
In 2010, this self taught pianist & vocalist was selected to participate in the Red Bull Music Academy. Soon after, Tutu Sweeney & The Brothers Band formed; Michael McTaggart on guitar and Te’Amir Sweeney on drums. They were given the opportunity to tour, opening for Aloe Blacc, and recently reconnected to work on some exciting projects to come.
Tutu’s sound is a fusion of Soul, Funk, Disco, and rock that resonates with everyone. Over the years he has been honing his craft and is ready to share it with the world.
