Simply put: Tony just gets it. He’s a blast to work with on the road, plays his ass off, and elevates the material with dynamics and feel and great timing. One of my favorite drummers to work with!
Seven years and four albums together… Tony’s playing is up there with the best drummers of today, both live and in the studio. His sound and engineering skills are top tier.
Tony is truly a great technician one of the good guys. It’s his meticulous preparation for recording as well as his dynamic live performances that really sets him apart and is the reason that more than 15 years later, we are still recording and working together. It’s no surprise that with his technical background and a million years on the road that he knows how to pull a good sound fast. A very good engineer who absolutely loves his craft who has great sense of humour, love that.
I’ve had the privilege of playing live and recording with Tony for many years. He is my “go-to-guy” because of his ability to find and convey just what is needed for a song to sound complete and compelling be it live or in the studio. Tony’s drum tracks gives a song longevity. There are no half measures when Tony is called for a gig or recording project. He definitely does it to a T!
For the last few years I've had the great fortune and true pleasure to have Tony as the backbone and engine room in my live band & even greater fortune to have him produce the drum tracks for all the songs on my forthcoming album! He is an absolute craftsman in the studio and has consistently produced drum tracks of the highest quality time after time! He has an innate sense of song and arrangement and creates great parts always executed flawlessly with impeccable timing and killer pocket! Sound wise, he's always right on the money with great tones, punchy, tight and warm with great clarity and definition. I highly recommend his work, and did I mention he's always delivered tracks up on time and is an absolute pleasure to work with! I couldn't do my music without him to be honest, as he brings so much quality to the table it makes my life easier and a joy to produce music with him!
I first met Tony when he filled in on drums in my band on short notice in mid 2014. I was super impressed with his preparation for the show and he had all the songs down and didn’t miss a beat! Tony is a really great, solid drummer who takes pride in his playing and is always professional and great fun to have on stage. I’ve been very fortunate to have him play on two of my studio recordings.
