Hello, AMBY reader! It is great to meet you. I am Tony Ferrari, and I am an Acoustic/ Pop / Retro-Soul singer and songwriter. I fell in love with the music of the 50’s and 60’s at a young age, finding inspiration in acts like Nat King Cole, Sam Cooke, and Sinatra. I was born and raised in Southern California and as I started to write music, I naturally blended the relaxing beach vibes with my love of soul music.
I put out my sophomore album, ‘Gentleman,’ this past April and have been playing a ton of shows in support of the release. I wanted to put out an album that expressed love and respect, and something with a better message than a lot of the stuff in the mainstream right now. Most importantly, I just want to get peoples’ hips dancin’!
Over the last couple of months, I gathered up the best group of musicians I know and started to build a band that I knew people would love. The live show now consists of a horn section, killer rhythm section, and everyone singing some loud and rowdy back-up vocals. I want to put on a show that people can feel and not just listen to, and this band has really made that possible. The live show is what I’ve always been the most passionate about.
I hope that you enjoy the record that we worked so hard on, and more importantly I hope to get up to Canada and play some shows for you! Thanks for including me in your day. Keep dancing!
