Originally from Port Hawkesbury, Nova Scotia. Tony landed his first job as an On-Air Personality at the age of 15. Working as a student at CIGO, he would soon find the stage with his first band, ‘Kilt.’ From performing at a Raptors game in the Air Canada Center to the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington DC, Tony and his ability to connect has allowed him to take the stage in many different settings. Starting out in smoke-filled bars, soon it was festivals, and international tours performing over 200 shows a year. Yes, radio play, music videos, and television appearances would follow, along with 5 East Coast Music Award Nominations, including Entertainer of the Year in 2000. The quick rise would result in a much-needed break from the entertainment industry, and love would bring Tony to Australia, where he is releasing his first solo album, ‘GO.’
Growing up with a wide range of influences might explain his genre-defying approach to music. Grounded in Pop with Country and Rock tinged elements.
What stands out is his emotive vocals and the ability he possesses to connect through his songs.
Tony has focused on music again, and the results will speak for themselves.
Singer-songwriter Tony Ronalds, originally from Nova Scotia, Canada and now based in Sydney, Australia, has just released a powerful new track Go. Tony’s brand of emotive power pop-rock is brilliantly brought to life in this heartfelt genre-defying song that features a dynamic vocal performance and rich and luscious layers of sensory beauty. Yet the track has an irresistible driving rhythm and a stirring edge to it too. With a lyric that reflects a deeply personal moment in Tony’s life, Go expounds on the theme of intense love to create a soaring blend of country-tinged pop. As Tony says of the track:‘Once you realize you are not promised another day, you quickly begin to appreciate the days you are given’. Go is about escapism and commitment and unbridled dedication and a whole lot more.
Go is at radio and available to download Today!.
