The One Tonic is a hybrid blend of alternative and electronic rock music by brain child Matt Soren. Blending the sonic flavor of Muse or MGMT with a more optimistic resolution, One Tonic is about living life above the status quo of deteriorating societal values.

Previous to the formation of The One Tonic, Matt Soren produced a solo concept album called ‘Return from Broken‘ which delivered a cathartic message about recovery from addiction and escape to freedom following his own experiences. Soren began performing for local rehabs and treatment centers as a way to give back and benefit those striving to conquer similar demons.

Shortly after, his wife was diagnosed with an aggressive breast cancer. This immediately changed his focus to fighting her battle with cancer. With 5 kids and their youngest just 6 months old, life became all the more eventful between cancer treatments, surgeries and subsequent financial challenges that ensued. Although these difficulties took most of his attention, they also bred songs of new depth and meaning which not only apply to recovery from addiction, but also recovery from adversity, mental, physical and other challenges. and The One Tonic were formed to share those experiences as well as the new highs that come when we’ve discovered how to live a truly, satisfying life, that only keeps getting better.
