About Tony Boyd
After many years of playing in regional Australia, Tony made the move to Sydney in the late 80s and soon discovered his love of contemporary blues (SRV, Robben Ford, Robert Cray) and pursued like minded musicians while still working in the cover band scene. He soon became a regular in the Sydney blues scene working with the Matt Roberts Trio (of which he is still a member).
In 2006, Tony found a happy home in the Kate Lush Band playing a combination of blues, soul, Motown and New Orleans based original music while gigging and playing festivals around Australia. Tony has so far recorded four albums with Kate (Radio Captain, Blues, Let It Fly and Headline) and continues to this day as a member of the band.
In 2007 and for the next 7 years Tony also toured with Australian Blues Guitar Legend Mal Eastick. While in Memphis, TN with Mal Tony had the absolute treat to record six tracks in legendary recording studio “Sun Studios”.
In 2014 filled in with The Christina Crofts (hotshot slide guitarist) Band at short notice which became a long-term association. He recorded Christina’s EP “Like We Used To”, and later appeared on the album “Just How Love Feels”.
