Ever since a young age, Tony Gear wanted to be a performer.

Whether it be on the stage or a sports field, he has always felt comfortable in front of audiences.

Having completed a degree in Popular Music Performance at Vocaltech in 2007, where he honed his song writing and performance skills, he now hopes to further his career by entertaining to a wider audience. Tony and his loyal guitarist Martin Roberts have been performing regularly for a couple of years and are consistently invited back at venues on the London circuit. In the autumn of 2009 they made it through to the regional final of Open Mic UK, performing in front of over 500 people.

Even though still only twenty five years old, the singer/songwriter from West London has shown maturity in his piano based song writing and his overall sound. On his song writing he commented I believe it is my parents taste that has shaped the songs I write. During my childhood my parents made me listen to artists from Stevie Wonder and Frank Sinatra to Simply Red and Fleetwood Mac. However as a teenager I chose to listen to nineties soul like Craig David and Lemar as well as music with a strong sense of rhythm like Maroon 5 and Jamiroquai. My sound is constantly evolving as I get inspired all the time-a Dictaphone is never far away. Even though my preferences lie in R&B at the end of the day I write what sounds good to my ear.

His music has been described as a fusion of British R&B and Cole Porter influenced jazz mixed with a hint of Latin. He has combined eventful chord sequences with memorable vocal melodies, rich in harmony. Being very open about his life and loves, he writes songs from the heart about his experiences and emotions. Tony truly hopes you like what you hear.
