"TLT Review"

Brilliant! Tony Lee Thomas has the ability to take your attention and run with it. Having grown up in a family where music was not put on in the background to listen to but instead something to live by and be a part of - I find it difficult to find popular music that takes you by the shoulders and demands that you listen, move and feel. Tony Lee Thomas is played in the forefront of my household daily. A true work of art.

"Acoustic Rainbow"

Sister Song [is] most suited for radio airplay and should crossover into several different radio formats including folk and Americana. Loved the arrangement. Very melodic. Loved the banjo. Lyrically and vocally, it's one of the best on the CD. Really enjoyed listening to the CD.

Bio

A student of voice from age 4, his vocal endeavors have included classical technique, various choral ensembles, even barbershop and doo-wop quartets. He has sung in, directed and arranged for many such projects and has gained a deep understanding of vocal harmony. Tony began guitar at seven years old, double bass at age 10, furthering his understanding of instrumentation and song composition. TLT's wealth of performance experience lends him the ability to connect with audiences spanning a multi-faceted scope: from intimate and poignant solo performances to momentous full-blown commanding vamps with his rock band, the Tony Lee Thomas Band.
