ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Tony Cox is a talented English songwriter. ‘Unpublished’ is Tony’s first release and consists of 11 self-penned, perfectly crafted pop songs. If you love melodies that float around your head for days you’ll love this album. Tony’s songs are effortlessly structured in a classic pop style... in fact, if you’re a Beatles, Beach Boys or Crowded House fan, you’ll feel an instant warmth as soon as you play these songs.

Tony records his songs at the famous Hijack Studios in England and he plays guitars and keyboards. He is joined on the recordings by his friends Nigel Clark (himself the lead singer with classic Brit-pop band Dodgy) on bass and Darren Finlan on drums. Nigel’s pitch-perfect lead vocals and gorgeous harmonies will send a shiver down your spine.

This album is a real gem and can’t be recommended highly enough... 10/10

But don't just take our word for it... this is what the Top Power Pop Blogs and Websites say about "Unpublished"

Powerofpop.com

These eleven songs represent some of the best British pop songwriting I’ve had the pleasure to listen to. It’s almost as if you’ve stumbled on a classic pop-rock jukebox in some alternative reality where hit songs like Sweet Elaine, Jamelia, Welcome To My World and Show Me Your Love rule the world. Step aside, Noel Gallagher, the jig is up. Let Tony Cox show you what quality songwriting is all about.

Earvolution

Cox has managed to find himself some amazing partners to showcase his flawless tunes and entrust them with delivering his amazing music. Tony Cox’s fluid sound almost makes you wonder why someone with this much talent has managed to stay under the radar.

Powerpopaholic

Tony Cox has put together an 11 track debut full of sweet surprises. Fans of classical power pop influences (Beatles, Beach Boys, Byrds) will find a goldmine of melodic pop here. Tony is not signed to any label, but shows you the wealth of riches some record companies need to pay attention to.

Absolute Power Pop

Unpublished is his debut album, and thankfully for us he actually did publish it. Tony Cox has the Carnaby Street Album of 2009 on his hands. He may be retro, but he has the tunes.

Modern Power Pop

Tony Cox is like a musical Dr. Frankenstein. He got his masters degree in 60's Sunshine Pop, with a minor in modern stylings. On his debut album "Unpublished", the harmonies are vintage, the hooks are aplenty, and the performances are spot on.

Hailing from the UK, the sound represented here is inspired by both sides of the pond. You would almost swear this were a collaboration between Brian Wilson and John Lennon. But where others have failed in recreating that glorious sound, Tony Cox succeeds in updating it for the kids of today. I'm certain that "Fallen" is a lost Beatles recording. Tony has raided the Lennon family vaults and stolen an undiscovered demo. Although the previous statement in completely false, it's hard to imagine another explanation. It's soaring melody and jangly guitars are unmistakably "fab". "Sacred Woman" is similarly steeped in British Invasion territory. The harmonies and lyrical content displayed on this track would bring The Zombies back from the dead. The same can be said for the majority of the tunes found on this sparkly disc.

It is refreshing to be able to listen to an album made in 2009 that marries itself so lovingly with 60's Power Pop.

The Shins may have got the ball rolling, but if god is willing and the sea don't rise, Tony Cox will find his place in the Power Pop spotlight.

Pop perfection
60's influenced melodic pop with more hooks than a tacklebox. You need to have this cd.

Patrick Beckers

Album of the year
It’s seldom these days, that I stumble upon an album that I enjoy from the first to the last track. Tony Cox’ Unpublished is such a rare album. It has its roots firmly planted in the best (pure pop) music of the Sixties and Seventies (think Beatles, Kinks, Easybeats, Raspberries, Big Star to name but a few) and where in some cases of contemporary albums that could be an disadvantage, in the case of this album it isn’t. On the contrary, it’s a big plus. Unpublished is an album with 11 songs brimful of melody and hooks, that will stick to your brain upon playing. Songs that you will keep on humming after playing for the rest of the day. Each and every one of the eleven songs is a winner here, there is not a weak track to be found, but highlights for me are the songs Chills, Welcome To My World, and Jamelia.

Tony Cox is looking for a way to get his songs published and recorded by other artists. Well, I hope he succeeds; judging by the quality of songs that can be found on Unpublished, publishing companies would be mad if they would turn down his songs! But judge for yourself and listen to the sound clips here; I promise you won’t be disappointed.

Wow!
I have been listening to this CD non-stop. The highlights for me are Sacred Woman and Life is Hardcore. The melodies and hooks will grab you and not let you go. It's not very often that I find a CD that I enjoy this much.
