Breaking Down the Silence marks the debut of New York City-based artist Jeff Tuohy on airwaves across the country. No stranger to the stage, Tuohy is both a seasoned actor and front-man having shared bills with acts from Howie Day to Rob Base and EZ Rock, and performed to thousands in theaters including the Majestic Theater in Boston and Carnegie Hall in NYC.
Perhaps this history is why his style has been defined by fans as “theater stage meets stadium rock.” His music has the timeless appeal of artists like Sting, U2, Jeff Buckley and Tom Petty, taking the listener on a journey into his life’s experience. Breaking Down the Silence is an honest and genuine expression that hides behind no walls or preconceived, pop-culture safety nets.
