"Q&A with Tony Enos"

For those of you who’ve seen today’s paper, I wrote a story about the upcoming Artist Expo in Lawrence next Thursday. Here is a Q&A interview with one of the featured acts, Tony Enos.

Me: Where are you from?
Tony: I am born and raised in Philadelphia.

Me: How did you get into music?
Tony: I’ve been singing and performing since I was 2. Then when I was 14, I started dancing and choreographing professionally. So my music got put on the back burner for a while. It wasn’t ’til my mid teens that I really started to break away from the dance industry and concentrate on being a recording artist.

Me: Who are you inspired by?
Tony: I am inspired by so many — Diana Ross, Janet Jackson, Prince, Stevie Wonder, Brian Mc Knight, on and on I could go lol
Me: Why?
Tony: From an artist standpoint they exemplify the type of artist and icon that I want to be. They leave a lasting impression on you, they’re more than just notes in a composition.

Me: What have you done musically that you are most proud of?
Tony: I’m most proud of being able to set up my foundation for HIV & AIDS research by donating a portion of the proceeds from my music sales.

Me: Why?
Tony: I had always promised myself as a kid that I would set up three foundations — one for HIV & AIDS, one for cancer research and outreach, and another for battered women and children. And that was the start of it with the TONY ENOS OUR LADY OF FATIMA & OUR LORD FOUNDATION FOR HIV & AIDS. It was really awesome to see that dream come to fruition.

Me: When did you start working on your debut album?
Tony: I really got down in the trenches with it in early 2008.

Me: Who did you work on it with? How did you find them?
Tony: My co-producer is Dammon “Mr. Dizzy Fingers” Bennett. He’s amazing! At the time I was looking for a remix producer to remix the first single “WORK IT OUT” and was referred to him by a friend. After hearing his work and having such a great experience working with him, I asked him if he would produce on the album and much to my blessing he excepted.

Me: What was your vision going into this project for the album?
Tony: The album really chronicles the positive and liberated place that I’ve been over the past four years. I’m a very passionate and sexually confident man, and I really wanted that to come across on the album. Whats more than that though, I really wanted to show my multifaceted personality in hopes that people could realize that we all have these multifaceted personalities. And by excepting that in themselves, that they could except and appreciate that in other people.

“Triple threat recording artist, Tony Enos, is coming at you with full force. Tony was born and raised in Philadelphia, the musical city that brought you the "O'Jays", the late Phyllis Hyman, the amazing Jill Scott and the incredible Ms. Patti LaBelle, its now his turn to shine.

After a few mishaps, professionally, with a sinking record company and his first record being released only in the Bahamas, he has been making a name for himself, in the New York & Tri-state areas with his unique blend of Hip-Hop, Latin, R&B, oozing sex with the energy of Usher and Beyonce and with the fast pace dance rhythms that remind you of a male Janet Jackson.

The music star and actor, Marquis, he's choreographed for, among many others, and now its time for the world to be introduced to another one of Philly's, musical son's, and rising star, Mr. Tony Enos”

Two-Spirit Cherokee Musician Tony Enos – Through Struggle, We Should Celebrate
Upcoming performance will focus on healing, lifting up and taking a break from the world.
Vincent Schilling • February 2, 2017
Hailed as “the most exciting performer to come out of Philadelphia since Patti LaBelle” by gbmnews.com, Two-Spirit, Cherokee musician Tony Enos says that in the midst of life’s struggles, now is the time Native people and others around the world need to come together and celebrate love, family and music.

Enos told ICMN he knows such things aren’t easy, but putting positive energy into things when you feel like doing otherwise is extremely important. He says he is excited to perform on February 18th at The Living Stage in Brooklyn, New York to deliver a message that is sorely needed.

“I don’t get to do this type of show often, so I’m really excited. It’s an intimate acoustic set, all new songs I haven’t released yet, with the exception of my song, Heal You World.

“My goal is to uplift the room and honestly just give everyone a break from the current state of the world for the evening. I am doing a new song, called Power To The People.”

“Though I really want everyone to have a good time, I also feel a responsibility to offer something of value in that moment as a Native Two Spirit musician and artist,” says Enos.

He told ICMN he would give anything to fix the problems in Indian country related to political struggles and to the problems faced by Native communities rising up against corporate policies such as the #NoDAPL water protectors at Standing Rock.

“When is enough, enough? I know I can’t focus on that or I’ll lose my mind. What I can do is make music and raise awareness to help my brothers and sisters out west who are fighting these monsters.”

On August 30th, Enos released a single on iTunes to raise awareness to benefit the Sacred Stone Camp at Standing Rock entitled, Water Is Life (What About the Babies), “This is what music is for. I encourage everyone to visit their websites and support in any way you can! I gave this song in a good way, as good medicine, with all the love I have.”

Tony Enos raises awareness for HIV/AIDS, domestic violence/IPV, youth issues, and Native American/First Nations/indigenous rights. He’s a council member of the East Coast Two Spirit Society and actively involved in Two Spirit youth work, and healing intergenerational trauma.

Cherokee Pop Artist & CEO of lil' T 

Entertainment LLC.


Hailed as "the most exciting performer to come out of Philadelphia since Patti LaBelle"by gbmnews.com, Two-Spirit Cherokee pop artist Tony Enos celebrates a near decade as a  singer/songwriter/producer, electrifying live stage entertainer, and activist. Always encouraging love wherever he goes, and fighting for our youth, the Philadelphia native was voted 2017 Native Trailblazer Indie Music Awards "Artist To Watch" for his single "Two Spirit" which has become the Two-Spirit movements anthem.

​The New York resident burst onto the music scene in 2009 with his debut album "Did It Rite," released under his own Philly based label, lil' T Entertainment LLC. Following "The Heat Tour 2012/2013", and his break through 2012 sophomore album "The Heat," the seasoned live performer has been leaving audiences across the country spellbound! His ability to bring audiences from all walks of life together and make a each person feel as though they're the only person in the room, while delivering a dazzling and heart pounding show is reminiscent of the instincts and talent of the music icons that the world loves so much.

​In addition to his ongoing philanthropic efforts in the LGBTQ2S community and youth rights, HIV/AIDS awareness, and Domestic Violence awareness, the musician is bringing attention to Native American/First Nations/Indigenous issues such as the Two Spirit reclamation, and healing. "I truly believe where words fail, music speaks," says the South Philly native. The Vegas style entertainer is back in the studio self producing his his 3rd studio album, "No Place Like Home," slated for release on June 16th, 2018.

​The LP will be reflective of the multi-award winning artist's growth as a musician releasing music since 2008. "I have a lot more to offer as an artist and a 33 year old man, than to be stifled by the boundaries and ideals of "modern" pop music." Indeed, the new album will showcase Enos' versatility as a singer/songwriter/producer, and feature new genre's for Tony such as pop country, in addition to the pop stylings fans expect from a Tony Enos album. The albums first two singles "Have A Good Time" feat. INSANE P, and "Gone," have both been released on iTunes to much fan excitement and buzz. The Native American performer has been touring the country promoting love, light, and healing with his infectious pop sound and smart lyrics. Visit Tony on iTunes today and find out why Tony Enos has become one of the most influential artists in Out Music.
