Tony's big biog....

Self produced and mixed by the Legendary Chris Kimsey (Rolling Stones/INXS) the album is filled with hook-laden melodies, powerful and moving words and some of the best new musicians in London as guest performers, creating compelling performances that hark back to the great days of record-making in the 70’s.
