“I have never been in the studio with Elvis Presley. This is an urban myth (or one that I made up). But, I have had good fortune, good luck or just plain stamina to have worked with a long list of amazing artists. My aim has always been to put my heart and soul into every project, every song, every mix, no matter what the genre, budget, notoriety or exposure. Music, and art, in general, has taken me to countries and cities all around the world and introduced me to people who have become lifelong friends. I’m always grateful.

I’m a self-confessed gear addict. Guitars, cameras, gadgets, bicycles, design, art, you name it and I obsess over it. I can still sit in a room with my Gretsch Setzer Signature that I bought on a session break in Hollywood around 2000… and just stare at it. Don’t get me started on dogs or watches.

I do some yoga (not enough), read a bit (not enough) and I also run a digital agency. I try to keep busy.

I’ll try to share the occasional mix, photo, blog entry, etc. here and I hope that it doesn’t annoy too many of you…or maybe I do!?!”

All the best,

Tony Black
