The songs of Tony Smiley are a tantalizing ride through electro acoustic music that will cause your musical senses to rise. During the experience you can expect original soul bearing songs, improv crowd pleasers, and creative cover mixes. As he loops his way through a set he builds the audience’s anticipation by using, keyboards, drum machines, guitars, tambourine, vocals and beat box sounds through Boss Loop pedals. His songs are original, groove-laden works of art. The loop ninja will “completely make you a believer.” (Andy Summers, guitar player for the Police). Recommended if you Like: Dub Fx, David Bowie

All 3 of his CD releases since going on his own have been Grammy-nominated, an indication of the excitement around his emergence as a band leader.
