He is a member of The Watchmen, one of Canada's most successful alternative rock bands of the 1990s. Following that band's breakup in late 2003, he spent time with Thornley, who released their debut album in 2004. Despite the mainstream appeal of Thornley, he departed in late 2005 along with Sekou Lumumba (drummer) because of creative differences with Ian Thornley to pursue other personal musical endeavours. After departing from Thornley, Tizzard started a new musical career as a solo artist. His current album Quiet Storey House... an introduction includes music that falls into the categories of indie and alternative.
