AWAA Award Winner Male Vocalist 2013 & Best Western Swing Album 2011
Tony hails from Richmond, Surrey, England and has lived in Texas since his early twenties with his wife Carole and two children, son Dominic and daughter Tina. Some years ago he by chance met Dick Gimble when enquiring about guitar lessons. His first gig with Dick and Johnny Gimble in Austin was the beginning of his love for Western Swing music.
Spending time on stage at the Broken Spoke along side greats such as Rick McRae, Terry Hale, Redd Volkaert & many of Austin's top musicians. Performing at venues & events with a nine piece band for a full sound of Western Swing & Big Band. Having recorded 4 cd's, "That's The Thing About Love", "Swingin' Big", "Thursday Nite Live" and the newly released "Merry Christmas".
Beginning in 2010 wanting a little more "shine" on the stage for his performances lead Tony to creating his custom jackets. Soon after customizing boots, shirts and guitar straps for other entertainers that have graced some of the biggest stages in the country!
