SOME BACKGROUND INFO
Tony has played in a couple of bands, he’s also performed many gigs as a solo artist. His sister gave him an old ice cream van (which she transformed into a mobile key-cutting wagon), Tony started trading, as a key-cutter, down in Portobello Road Street Market, West London. Most Fridays, around lunchtime, Tony would sing out on Tavistock Square, with his twelve string guitar and Marshall amp, he 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.
Not so long ago, Tony made an unexpected discovery at a family funeral. He found out that his great great granddad 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 ‘KellyAnn’, ‘Max Redwood’ on the soundcloud page).
Tony has a very passionate vision. His goal is to see his eccentric novel 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’.
