““As We Go ‘Round the Sun” is a melodic display of awesomeness. ”
“Tony De Simone is, without doubt, a talented songwriter....people like Jason Mraz should sit up and take note of how it should be done.”
“This sunny bit of guitar-rock will invite comparisons to Jack Johnson and John Maher, all while Desimone’s vocals tattoo themselves in the minds and hearts of listeners. The instrumental arrangements on this introductory track make for a dense and detailed effort; fans will be glued to their seats for the entirety of this EP (As We Go 'Round the Sun) .”
"From start to finish “Second Time Around” is an impressive collection of music from Tony Desimone. Note for note, song for song there isn’t really weak piece on this entire CD. The writing and playing abilities of Tony Desimone and his band are rock solid, the melodies are well crafted, and the lyrical content is packed to the hilt with conventional wisdom and messages of hope, love and the passion of life itself."
"The Second Time Around (www.tonyDmusic.com) Effortlessly blending a fresh, catchy, and vibrant sound with an infectiously upbeat and sunny sensibility, New Jersey-based singer/songwriter Tony DeSimone’s first full-length album makes for an uplifting and invigorating listen."
"On The Second Time Around, the talented singer-songwriter Tony Desimone offers an imaginative and entertaining album of indie/alt melodic rock, likely better than the mainstream milieu and many of his peers. Recommended"
“The Second Time Around is something that bleeds red, white and blue.... Two Steps Back To You is a track that crosses over from the rock stylings that are present on much of The Second Time Around and straddles the line between soul, country, and pop music. The track defies genre convention even as it appeases anyone that is fans of these styles; Desimone’s vocals add the perfect bit of icing on the top of this composition. If you think popular music has lost its way, buy a copy of The Second Time Around and see if your opinion has not been changed.”
"Tony DeSimone is like musical comfort food.THE SECOND TIME AROUND is chock full of intensely human qualities to which any listener, even tertiary, can relate...DeSimone's sound transcends the concept of time, as his tales and tunes are relevant to any generation. From the frat-house to the pub to the stadium, he's got what it takes to ease his way into the mainstream conscience. "
“Channeling a bit of Enrique Iglesias, the laid back lyrics of Kenny Chesney and the brightness of Jack Johnson, Tony DeSimone's work on 'The Second Time Around' makes the listener give it a listen or two. And, it sure feels good. He has this gruffy, growling thing going on. It is rather sexy, really. This CD has a bit of everything in it - pop, electro, Americana and some pop country flavors mixed. ”
“Tony DeSimone is a true artist with a distinct voice who is ready to take over the air waves. The new record features elements of pop, country and rock all mixed together to make up one killer sound. His vocal styling & tone also grab you because Tony’s voice is catchy as hell. This singer/songwriter appeals to the average listener because he writes & performs songs that work and sound great too! Tony has honed in on his craft of music making & songwriting and now invites the world to bear witness to his art. Tony DeSimone and his new work are composed of actual talent & absolute meaning. So…I am calling out ALL THE RADIO/TV STATIONS TO GET THIS GUY IN YOUR ROTATION NOW!!!”
“Tony DeSimone forms his songs to let a lot of light inside on ‘The Second Time Around’. The songs skip (“Easy Love”), strut (“Two Steps Back to You”) and sway (“The Second Time Around”). Tony wraps emotion around the characters, often donning the coat of the leaver or the leavee. With a music foundation this cheerful, even bad news can be met with some degree of a smile”
"... the kind of music for sitting outside on a nice spring day...I suggest you give his music a listen. "
"one of the Pop stars of today and tomorrow. In my many years of music, I actually found a singer/songwriter who’s music really talks.”
