Electric Mystical Soul Vibration (EMSV) is a British psychedelic experimental project conceived in 2004 by Tony Tooke, born in Ashington, Northumberland, UK.
Tony had a fascination with music from an early age and is self-taught in all the instruments he plays. In and out of bands since the early 1990s, Tony always experimented with sounds and recording at home. A brief time gigging with a local band in 2006 inspired him to work on his own music again. His first track recorded after many years of musical neglect was Mystic Garden which went on to win the Reflex Record Makers competition in 2007. With the kind help of brilliant lyricist Dwight Pavlovic two albums were released on Royal Rhino Flying Records. The track Bohemian Dropout appears on the CD compilation Trip in Time Volume 3. Tony now lives in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne and continues to write and record. He also does mastering and production for various bands.
