Tony Crivello is a 27 year old singer/songwriter from Milwaukee, WI and has been playing guitar on an almost daily basis for the last 14 years. He has always loved music and his future as a musician popped up when he was 3 years old and smashed his toy guitar he loved because the cool rock stars on TV did it. He wouldn't get another guitar until 10 years later when his dad finally broke down after countless Christmas and Birthday wishes for a guitar. His best and favorite guitar is a US Fender Deluxe Plus Stratocaster with lace sensor pickups. His major influences are diverse and countless, but here's the cream of the crop: Jeff Buckley, Jonny Lang, The Get Up Kids, Hey Mercedes, Bush, Silverchair, Sublime, Our Lady Peace, Matt Nathanson, and Ben Harper.

Tony's new solo acoustic project debuted this summer at The Rave/Eagles Ballroom in Milwaukee. He has been writing nonstop for the past year and has a new batch of songs ready for action. The music is indie/alternative rock but is more mellow when played acoustic. His sets are mostly originals but always have some covers scattered in. His best covers are acoustic versions of Sublime songs because of his ability to channel Bradley Nowell.

There are a lot of bands out there, but few have the combination of good vocals, creative songwriting and quality live performance. Tony tries to accomplish all 3. He is laid back and tries to find humor in most situations. Sorry, that wasn't meant to sound like a dating ad... It just feeds into his songwriting along with the trials and tribulations of life and relationships.

He currently resides in Port Washington, WI, which is home to "Screech" Dustin Diamond, and the place where the 1990's sitcom "Step By Step" was supposed to be located. In the first episode of Step By Step, Steve Urkel flies his jet pack from Chicago and lands at the Lambert family picnic at their home in Port Washington. Classic. Tony loves taking sunrise pictures at the lake and it inspires much of the music. Tony would eventually like to put together a full band to record these songs and write more full rock band material.
