This song is a tribute to the troops and has catchy guitar riffs.

Is That So Wrong?

A song about dealing with loving someone that doesn’t love you like that back and just wants to be friends. This is a very universally themed song.

There’s Gotta Be sounded very reminiscent of Vertical Horizon when he played it live. It’s a very pop and an upbeat song.


The James Bond Song that is Currently Untitled. Tony was inspired by the James Bond movies to write this song. The audience concurred and decided it would be a perfect fit for the intro to the new James Bond film. I know when I heard it I could imagine a dark orchestral arrangement behind him.

Tony is one of those musicians who is making himself a name by doing things independently and it looks like it is working for him. He has an album coming out this fall and is planning a fall tour in conjunction with the CD release. Keep your eyes and ears peeled for this budding new talent.
