Tony Lipari, AKA The Rikshaw, was born in New York and raised Florida. Music has helped to guide him through the times when he needed it most. He feels that making music is more important than anything because of this. Having studied the martial arts since his early teens, he has an excellent sense of discipline and integrity. Studying the martial arts and Japanese culture was, in fact, how he chose his name, "The Rikshaw".

The Philosophy...

The name 'Rikshaw' comes from the Japanese hand cart called a rickshaw or jinrikisha. It symbolizes the struggle of man to have the weight of the world on his back. This is, of course, not to say that the artist himself carries the weight of the world, but that mankind in general must endure it. Truly living life is about endurance and strength. In the pursuit of life, as a whole, The Rikshaw continues to strive to find his place in the world of music entertainment...

Ladies and Gentlemen, we present to you...The Rikshaw.
