• Tony was born in London.
    He loves The Beatles.
    He’s always been a passionate lover of great music from the 60’s, he loves Fleetwood Mac when they had Peter Green fronting the band, he loves Phil Spector’s wall of sound, The Beach Boys early albums, he loves
    The Kinks and The Rolling Stones.
    Tony writes everyday, he loves working on his songs and stories.
    He’s played in a couple of different Rock bands, doing gigs at The Dublin Castle, The Marquee, The Half Moon in Putney, The Hope and Anchor, The Viper Room (LA). Tony recorded one of his songs at Abbey Road Studios. It’s been a rollercoaster journey with some highs and lows. Tony has a whole bunch of new songs that he
    plans to record soon 😊


    For some years Tony drove an old ice-cream van, he took it to different street markets, the van was a mobile key-cutting wagon.

    Tony started trading as a key-cutter down at Portobello Market (West London) twice a week (Weds and Fri).

    He kept busy cutting-keys, changing watch batteries, engraving pet discs, sharpening lawnmower blades, 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. (check out Steve’s 🎷 sax-solo in Tony’s song… ”Jennie”)

    Tony pushed himself constantly, writing, performing, recording and producing his own songs at his local studio, sometimes acoustic projects, sometimes band projects. Tony’s songs have been played on Radio Caroline, Radio Verulam (St Albans), Mix FM (Herts), WABG Radio in Mississippi, and Sirius XM in New York.

    Tony’s deeply inspired by Brian Wilson’s amazing album ‘Pet Sounds’. He also loves Brian’s pocket symphony “GOOD VIBRATIONS”. Tony’s into all kinds of bands and artists… The Beatles, Them, The Rolling Stones, The Kinks, Creedence Clearwater Revival, JJ Cale, The Band, The Faces, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Arctic Monkeys, The White Stripes, Santana……

    Tony will be back in the studio soon, recording some new material.


    Tony has thoroughly enjoyed writing ‘Louise Buttersky’ and ‘Seven Wacky Tales’
    He loves getting lost in his imagination.
    Tony’s very much inspired by Roald Dahl books, Quentin Tarantino films, Tim Burton films, Wes Anderson films …David Lynch films (“Wild at Heart” “The Straight Story”)
    Tony is now working on … “Louise Buttersky” (Vol 2) and 8 Wacky tales.

    Tony has something he’d like to say to all the hard working artists out there ……
    “Your Art makes this world a more beautiful place, so please keep doing your thing, keep building, keep evolving, if you get rejected or ignored, don’t worry about it. Just bounce back up on your feet again (be like Tigger😜🐯💥) dust yourself down, and keep on keepin on!
    Keep believing in yourself and never give up on your dream❤️🙏 !!!”
