The snow is falling on a blustery mid-March morning, and I’m gearing up to begin rehearsals with the talented ROCKTOPIA team for an East Coast tour that begins later this March. If you are in a PBS market that aired the Rocktopia- Live From Budapest concert over the holiday season, then you have a pretty good idea of how unique this epic show is. I’m incredibly excited to be part of this whirlwind of a tour, which will visit 23 US cities. (View tour schedule here.) For those who aren’t able to attend any of these dates, make sure you follow me on Twitter and Facebook— as more domestic and European dates are being added! Also, as I've been traveling so much over the past year, I’ve spent a lot more time posting on Instagram. So if you want to see what I’ve been up to, and keep up with visuals of my travels, follow me at @theofficialtonyvincent.
In other news, at the top of the year I— along with my brilliant web designer— did a total overhaul of my website, www.tonyvincent.com. It’s cleaner, easier to navigate and really captures the feel of who I am. It’s also easier to find my tour schedule, listen to and purchase music, and see who I’ve recently partnered with (within the worlds of audio, photography and lifestyle). The site still remains my general online home-base, and I’d love to hear what you think of the changes— so drop me a line via the contact page.
Also, my NYC recording studio— SoundShop370— has been busy with some really cool projects lately. I’ve been producing some very talented artists, and it has been thrilling to lend my contributions to “the other side of the glass.” I've produced my own records for decades, but it has been really interesting for me to work on projects for others that have leaned toward the R&B and urban genres, which has excited me as a producer, programmer and mixer. Just as a reminder, if you have a project that you’re looking to have produced or engineered, you can always drop me a line at SoundShop370@tonyvincent.com and we can talk about what you're looking for. (And, no, you don’t necessarily have to have access to
New York City.)
Last but not least, I want to give a shout out to all of you whom I’ve been able to meet during my travels with The Music Of David Bowie. You have been amazing, and some of your venues are absolutely breathtaking! It’s been a joy to sing these iconic songs that have so greatly influenced me as a musician, as well as to have the opportunity to play with many of the most talented symphonies in North America. Thank you all for making me feel so at home. (And, yes, I’m sill doing Bowie dates— so check the shows page of my site— as new dates are continually being added.)
Cheers to you all—
