Tyrone Brunson

Profile:
Bassist - Singer - Songwriter - Producer

Hails from Washington, D.C.
He played in local funk bands in the 70's, most famous of them Osiris (2).
In 1982 he was signed to the Columbia-distributed Believe In A Dream.
His first single, the instrumental "The Smurf", tapped into what was then a New York dance craze, and the song won international club recognition. But when the smurf trend cooled, so did Brunson.
He could not follow up the success of this single, although he did release three albums through the 80's.
Later he did background vocals for Levert.
He went on to become teacher of computer networking.
Tyrone Brunson died on May 25, 2013.
