Hamilton Boyce and original drummer Nash Turley met in Junior High and began playing and writing original music together when they were 12. Hamilton went on to Garfield High School (alma mater of Jimi Hendrix, Quincy Jones, Digable Planets, etc.) where he met David Balatero.
While Hamilton played with the acclaimed Garfield High School Jazz Band, which included touring to the Montreux Jazz Festival and North Sea Jazz Festival and two consecutive wins at Essentially Ellington competition at Lincoln Center, David was deep into the Garfield Orchestra contributing to the Orchestra’s list of national awards. After school and weekends the three wrote, improvised and performed, creating the foundation of Song Sparrow Research.
First off, what's with the name anyway? What (if anything) does Tokyoidaho mean? Could be an oblique reference to Seattle and where it sits geographically and culturally, (somewhere between the neon-future and the old west) but then with you being a perceptive sort, you might be skeptical of that explanation, and then I would be forced to admit that weird mash-ups are the only googleable names left in this crazy mixed-up world!
