Tone (album)

Tone is the first solo album by Pearl Jam bassist Jeff Ament. It was released on September 16, 2008 through Monkey Wrench Records.


The album features ten songs written over a span of 12 years. The album was recorded by Ament over an eight year period at Horseback Court in Blue Mountain, Montana, which is Ament's home studio, and completed in 2008. Former Three Fish drummer Richard Stuverud contributed his drumming to seven songs on the album and King's X frontman Doug Pinnick contributed lead vocals to the song "Doubting Thomasina". "The Forest" was recorded by Pearl Jam, however frontman Eddie Vedder never got around to adding vocals to the track. The instrumental version by Pearl Jam is featured in the 2007 Pearl Jam concert film, Immagine in Cornice. The version of the song on Tone features vocals by Ament and music taken from the original demo version of the song. The album was mixed Brett Eliason, who had previously worked with Ament as Pearl Jam's sound engineer. The artwork for Tone was composed by Ament. 3,000 copies of Tone were pressed and were distributed through independent record stores across the United States as well as through Pearl Jam's official website.
