Accompanying himself on acoustic guitar, Tony mixes the touching with the hard-hitting, the poignant with a laugh. He sings about Humankind and it’s world, reflecting his own oblique views on life as a member of the human race (which he is determined to win!). Another side to Tony’s performance is a selection of traditional songs and tunes on frailing banjo – an instrument he fell in love with at the tender age of 14. Add to this an array of performance poetry and you end up with a varied and entertaining performer.
Influences are: TOM WAITS , BOB DYLAN, KURT WEILL, MARTIN SIMPSON, LOUDON WAINWRIGHT, THE BEATLES , RANDY NEWMAN, JAKE THAKERAY, SHAKESPEARE, Oh, and loads and loads more…
