through last part of the ninties and early 00's Tony spent as song writer and lead guitarist with Dublin based indipendent band 'PEEL'
whos sound was described by one journalist as 'pebble dashed rock and roll' ,after a few indi releases the bands future looked bright but due to personal circumstances the band parted ways.
After a spell in the states Tony has spent the last four years in Spain where he had the oppertunity to gig just about every night! Set to return to Ireland this May to "live the dream on a different level, Ive always wanted to release a full album in Ireland cause theres no place like home!"
A bunch of catchy rock/pop songs to suit every mood with thought provoking hook heavy lyrics, the grasshoppers music is all about playing for the song.
"my influences are not so much bands or artists but the movements they were part of and what the music's spirit says about the world at that time...!,if Id said bob dylan,hendrix,the doors and u2 you would have yawned!."
