SOME BACKGROUND INFO
Tony was the frontman in a couple of rock bands, he’s also performed many gigs as a solo artist. His sister gave him an old ice-cream van (which they transformed together into a mobile key-cutting wagon), Tony started trading as a key-cutter working on Portobello Road twice a week (Weds and Fri). He kept busy cutting-keys, changing watch batteries, sharpening kitchen knives, engraving pet discs, but his favourite thing was singing out on Tavistock Square every Friday afternoon. Using his Marshall amp he’d belt out songs with his twelve string guitar and harmonica. Tony was often joined by his friend, Stephen Ellery, an exceptional saxophonist. Tony pushed himself constantly, writing, performing, recording and producing his own songs at his local studio, sometimes acoustic projects, sometimes band projects. Around this time, some of Tony’s songs were being played on Radio Caroline, and WABG Radio in Mississippi.
Not so long ago, Tony made an unexpected discovery at a family funeral. He found out that his great grandad was Edgar Wallace, creator of ‘King Kong’.
This inspired Tony to write his debut novel, ‘Louise and the Laundrette Lady’…
A wacky (easy to read) adventure story full of eccentric characters, all on a mission…
Tony kept his creativity on the flow by writing songs about some of the characters in his book (check out ‘Kelly Ann’ & ‘Max Redwood’).
Tony is very passionate about his vision. He believes his eccentric novel will become a classic adventure film.
Tony’s also working on a bunch of short stories.
Tony loves the ‘creation process’ in the studio, he’s deeply inspired by Brian Wilson’s amazing album ‘Pet Sounds’, and Marvin Gaye’s masterpiece, ‘What’s Goin On’.
