Bursting forward with the passion of soul and jazz, Tony Ferrari brings forth a new and refreshing flavor to pop music. Blending the borders of genres and exposing the deepest of emotions, this young singer-songwriter is sure to move you.
Tony loved to write poetry and short stories from a very young age. Along with his grandpa, who was a published poet, he would spend most of his days writing and illustrating. Having no background in music, Tony picked up the guitar as he entered high school simply so he could play music with friends. Upon the passing of his Grandma, he found that his grandpa had given up writing. Tony considered this his time to take over the tradition, and he would do so through music.
Having only three years of experience under his belt, Tony has played prestigious venues all over California. From the House of Blues in Hollywood, to Zoey's Cafe in Ventura, to The University of San Diego, this young musician has started a wave along the golden coast. He has had the honor of playing beside musicians such as Chris Pierce, Tony Lucca (The Voice), Anuhea, Matthew Santos, Ingrid Michaelson and many more. Looking to tour more extensively since the album release, Tony will be hitting other states soon.
The highly anticipated debut album, "Signs," was released in April, 2012. Upon its debut, the album reached #8 on the iTunes Charts for it's genre!
This Soul, Jazz, and Pop infused record brings a new and true style forward. Singles "Signs" and "Fire" show hints of the soulful styles of Stevie Wonder and Ray Charles, while "Made For Two" brings back the sounds of Motown. Heartfelt ballads like "All the Way Back" and "Life Through A Telescope" explode with emotion. And crowd favorites "Gate to the Sun" and "Distance" are laid back beach jams with that pure soul touch.
Having been performing for only a few years, this young musician will only move forward, and he is sure to move you with his upbeat grooves, and powerful, honest lyrics.
Stay tuned for more things to come in 2013!
