Tonetta is the stage name used by a reclusive singer-songwriter and visual artist who since the early 1980s has been recording and sharing his original music and videos (originally on VHS and cassette). In 2008, he became an international cult celebrity after starting his first YouTube channel containing music and video that often contain explicit sexual content and a unique do it yourself aesthetic.
Tonetta’s detractors call his music vile filth whereas fans call it the work of a pure outsider artist.
In this episode of Nighttime, I’m joined by my good friend and band mate Aaron Corbett for a discussion surrounding an artist unlike any you've ever heard of.
Our Topic is the Toronto based cult musician and artist known around the world as Tonetta.
