“The heinous events that occurred on June 17 2015, otherwise known as “The Charleston Church Massacre” pushed me over the edge. I was overwhelmed with rage, hatred, confusion and disillusionment.  I had no place to put these feelings.  I had no idea how to process them.  So, in a selfish attempt to maintain my own sanity I did the only thing I could do -- write about it..... Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown, Ferguson, Eric Garner, Baltimore, Freddie Gray, Samuel DuBoise, it keeps going on and on and on....yes, it does feel like I’ve only put a band-aid on a bullet wound, a sonic salve on a temporary....maybe one day the bleeding will stop, maybe, one day....”   Tomás Doncker-NYC,2016


Doncker has worked with artists including Madonna, Ivan Neville, Bonnie Raitt, Meshell Ndegeocello, Corey Glover of Living Colour, former Parliament Funkadelic keyboardist Amp Fiddler, Grammy winning producer/bassist Bill Laswell, Chocolate Genius, and 2016 Grammy award nominee Shemekia Copeland. His ongoing collaborations with Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Yusef Komunyakaa have received massive critical acclaim. He has produced hundreds of records for independent musicians. He is the founder and CEO of True Groove Records.

The Mess We Made blasts with a musical eruption of passion, sorrow, rage, possible hope, frustration, and the sheer inability to sit back and do nothing ”that feels like it had no choice but to come out. There is not doubt that this album is a manifestation of pure inspiration and intention...a masterpiece.”  — Discussion Magazine


“This racially charged and paradigm-shifting record is a testament to his unwavering political views and decades of work in the music industry.” — The Huffington Post
