In 2009, a group of musicians from San Francisco / Bay Area came together and formed Sherlock Tones. Sherlock Tones creates an electric alternative hip hop sound with pop sensibility. Members of Sherlock Tones include Steven V. (guitarist, bassist and producer); Brian (drummer); Nick Davidovich, (guitar & synth); Khattab (vocalist). Originally, and still today, Sherlock Tones produces music and writes songs for various artists. The collective of musicians has also spawned into a live band.
