Tony Kanal is the bassist and co-writer of the Grammy Award winning rock band No Doubt. Formed in Anaheim, California in 1986, No Doubt earned international acclaim with their multi-platinum albums “Tragic Kingdom” (1995), “Return of Saturn” (2000) and “Rock Steady” (2001), all of which took them touring the world many times over. After their double-platinum greatest hits compilation “The Singles 1992-2003” was released in 2003, Tony delved into producing and writing outside of the band, including working on movie soundtracks and with artists such as Pink, Weezer and Gwen Stefani on her 2004 and 2006 solo albums. No Doubt released their most recent album “Push And Shove” in 2012 and spent 2015 headlining the US festival circuit. Tony has been playing Yamaha basses since he purchased his first BB1600 in 1987.
He is currently in the studio working on a new project with fellow No Doubt bandmates Tom Dumont and Adrian Young as well as A.F.I. singer Davey Havok.

Starting at the age of 16, Lee played his first session with The Mama's and the Papa's. Two years later he was backing Tony Bennett and Lena Horne at L.A.'s Dorothy Chandler Pavilion. Known as "Captain Fingers," Ritenour became a sought-after session player in the mid-70's. Starting in 1976, at the age of 24, he began his own solo career which now includes over 30 albums and collaborations. Although heavily influenced in his early days by the relaxed styles of Wes Montgomery, Joe Pass and Barney Kessel, he now has his own distinctive sound and fluid style. His list of session work is awesome (some 3,000 sessions), but some of his notable performances were with Herbie Hancock, Steely Dan, Dizzy Gillespie, Sonny Rollins and Pink Floyd. Since the mid-80's Ritenour has been strongly influenced by Brazilian music.
