Alonza Bevan is composer, producer, and multi-instrumentalist – and anchors the on-off again psychedelic Brit pop purveyors Kula Shaker. A fluid pocket and melodic player, Bevan also helmed the solo album/band debut of The Smiths’ guitar icon Johnny Marr with The Healers also featuring drummer Zachery Starkey. Alonza’s primary weapon of choice is the Fender Jazz, wherein he works a fat tone which replicates the resonance of the British Invasion greats of yore. Nowadays Alonza collaborates with his wife Audrey on a delightfully trippy folk infused collection under the banner of Tumblewild.
