Album Notes
Please feel free to get in touch with me if you would prefer to purchase a physical CD rather than an MP3 download.

Hi. I’m Tony. Thanks for stopping by. I hope you enjoy the tunes. Feel free to drop me a line with any feedback you may have.

I’ve been playing guitar for about 25 years now. I played briefly in Chum (Century Media), and was a founding member of Byzantine (Prosthetic Records) who released three albums in the US, Europe, and Japan. Wetoured the US extensively as well as Great Britain. I am also a former Ibanez endorsee.

I have a BA in music/business management and I’ve also been a full time guitar teacher with upwards of 70 students per week.

My goal with this project was two-fold. First, I wanted to record an entire CD of music completely on my own with no help or input from anyone else. In doing so, the success or failure of the thing rested entirely on my shoulders. So it was like an act of discipline to see it through and try to create something worthwhile.

The second part of this was to complete the whole thing without spending any money. It is said that a poor craftsman blames his tools. So an important goal for me was to record this thing using only the very modest gear/software I owned at the time. Can one be creative and write/record something worthwhile with no budget? That was the question I kept asking myself. You guys will have to decide on the answer.

Now I did manage to write/record everything you're hearing alone. But eventually, I got my head too far up my own butt and realized that I was never going to be able to get enough distance from these songs to be able to mix and master them properly. My friend and former band mate Terry Smith volunteered to mix them for me and it’s his mixes you’re hearing. Thanks Terry!

Again, thanks for listening and take care.
