Tone & Niche (tone & neesh), an original pop/rock band based out of Detroit, Michigan consists of singer/songwriter Anthony Retka, violinist Nicole Varga, bass guitarist/keyboardist James Sterling Lees, and drummer Roger Dutcher.
Tone and Niche’s eclectic mix of violin-led pop/rock and singer/songwriter styles have become a driving force in the Detroit music scene. The band has shared the bill with several national recording artists including: Martha Wainwright, Mike Errico, and Stephen Kellogg and the Sixers.
Over the last seven years Tone and Niche has released three albums, a LIVE double CD, two singles and two EP's. These recordings emit a mysterious brilliance of creative song structure, lyrical depth and polished performance.
In addition to everything else, T&N’s song So Long, from the 2007 record Rust, was recently featured on the Discovery Channel’s Dr. G: Medical Examiner.
