He also has some thirty years experience as a cataloger of all manner of musical materials at Binghamton University Libraries in upstate New York.

My instrumentals Peanut Soup and Sticky Tape are both now Semi-finalists in the UK Songwriting Contest.


"Tony Tersmette really hits it out of the park with his track Blue Chalk[in']. He builds on the synth pop of the past but definitely takes the song to a place in the future. A solid production and well thought out electric composition." -- Jason Miles, pro reviewer.

Hi Tony--
Thanks for listening to "Awakening" and the stars. I appreciate it! I listened to your "Tea for One". 5-stars. I especially like the rain/old record effect.

Thank you for the 5 " Tony on Opus 42.
I hope you are well.
All the best,

Álvaro Guevara Vázquez, Composer BMI.

Alvaro, your music has a depth and breadth to it I can only wish there was more of in this environment. All the best to you as well, sir!

Thanks indeed for the stellar matter for Blue Skies. An old track that, upon a re-listening, strikes me as something I ought perhaps re-visit and improve. Perhaps a niche for it somewhere in the marketplace?
Thanks again, sir!

Thanks for the 5's for PVM.

Workin' on a new one that's been hiding in my computer for ages. Instrumentally done with a scratch vocal that needs lyrics, which are not coming easily.

Mr. Bill
